This month’s Ballina RSL Big Gig features Katrina Davidson.

Question: Who has 24 years’ comedy experience, tells brilliant stories and keeps the laughs coming, no matter who is in the audience? Answer: This lady…

Kat is like an old friend you haven’t met yet. She’s shared the stage with the world’s best comic names (Stephen K Amos, Steven Wright, and Dave Hughes, to shamelessly name drop a few), tamed a shed full of drunk miners, kept a 21-year marriage off the rocks, and is currently being parented by her nine-year-old.

Kat brings a fresh and intelligent view to her comedy. She tackles relationships, observations and random events with equal passion and her unique storytelling ability takes her audience along with her for the ride.

Kat has been a professional improviser since 1993, hosted gala events, coached blue chip companies in communication and worked a crowd from the back of a cattle truck. Occasionally, all at the same time!

This event will be way too much fun with MC Mandy Nolan and support Emma Zammit.

See this month’s Big Gig on Thursday from 8pm.
