Catherine is Canadian. She was raised to be polite. But then she moved to Australia.
Catherine McClintock has always done the right thing. She's even been called tragically responsible. In her swanky new stand-up show, Please and Thank Yous, she rejects those expectations and joyfully serves up some sh!t - metaphorically, not scatologically. A unique voice on the comedy scene, audiences delight in Catherine's insightful observations wrapped in silly, scrote-covered packaging. Yeah, expect a scrotum joke or three…
Born and raised in Canada, Catherine moved to Tasmania in the mid-2000s and now lives and performs regularly in Melbourne. An Emergency Nurse turned Comedian, she's a mum to two young children and a chronic illness warrior, battling a rare autoimmune disease called Dermatomyositis that no one can pronounce. Doctors tell her she's one in one hundred thousand, but she likes to tell people one in a million. Audiences think so too.
A two-time RAW Comedy state-finalist, Catherine McCintock has been a fixture of the Tasmanian comedy scene since her debut, performing at Fresh Comedy, Jokers Comedy and many others, supporting acts such as Judith Lucy, Sam Simmons, Randy and Claire Hooper.
After a cracking start at the Melbourne Fringe Festival and Hobart's Fringe at the Edge of the World, Catherine McClintock proudly brings Please and Thank Yous to the hallowed halls of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Running for two weeks only, a rare gem not to be missed!
