Kitty is one of Australia's best known female comedians.
She was nominated for a 2010 Helpmann Award for her hit show 'Charming & Alarming'.
Kitty is a regular on Australian TV on The Project sharing her view on current events, and during their seasons, was a regular guest on Good News Week and Spicks and Specks.
As the story goes...
Kitty was a tiny, stick like child with very large front teeth and fuzzy hair. She is now a grown woman with very large front teeth and fuzzy hair.
Kitty attempted (and failed) many university courses because it used to be free to do so. Then the government introduced HECS. Booooo. And so she remains "undegreed" to this day.
With no tertiary education and few demonstrable skills, advertising was the obvious calling and for five years she masqueraded as a copywriter. Eventually she was fired. Best day ever.
She went and stood in the dole queue for twenty minutes but became bored and depressed. So she went to work in a bar. And then she tried doing stand up at an open mic night at the Harold Park Hotel. And then she got a job on Full Frontal (a sketch show, not a nudie mag). And then she moved to London and did more standup. Heaps of it.
She has performed at all the major comedy Festivals around the world including Edinburgh, Melbourne, Montreal, Kilkenny, even Cape Town and Joburg.
Then she moved back to Australia. Which is where she is now. Still doing standup and writing for film and television.
Touring the country with her new show "Hello Kitty Flanagan".
