“So I figured if McDonald’s can call itself a restaurant, I can call myself an actor”.

Ever since Katie was cast as the lead in her primary school Christmas show “Santa’s Snow Mobile” she believed there was a place for her in show business. Since then named, speaking and fully clothed roles have been hard to come by…

SEXY LAMP, winner of Show of the Week at VAULT festival 2019, brilliantly combines comedy, original songs and storytelling to shed a bright light on how ridiculous the industry can be and why Katie is refusing to stay in the dark.

From the writer and performer of Bicycles and Fish, winner of Show of the Week at VAULT Festival 2018.
