There are so many comedians banging on about their sex life, it takes a truly original mind with a truly unique life to make it interesting. Catherine Bohart has both and delivers a hilarious, insightful and inclusive hour. Being bi-sexual, she could easily deploy some of the more outré aspects of lesbian sex for cheap, shock-value laughs, but she chooses to make the trials & tribulations of modern sexuality relatable and thus the audience can empathise and get on board with her from the outset. Straight people are not the enemy and we’re all going somewhere together for the next hour.

She uses her lilting Irish accent and vocal mannerisms to best effect (and who wouldn’t?) but doesn’t lean on that. With her Dublin charm and artlessly open & friendly manner you feel you know her in 5 minutes. After many a stock Irish Mammy, her wildly inappropriate and oversharing mum is a breath of fresh air (with her flaming hair and freckles, it’s as if Amy Adams came from the Addams Family).

She flits from subject to subject naturally if she’s just having a-bit-of-a-chat with you, but there is method in her meanderings as she coalesces into strong points about societal pressure on women, the entirely different peer pressure on gay women & how perceptions of gay female relationships can impact the inner world of those relationships themselves.

But I’m pretty sure the whole Ninja Turtles was not a metaphor. I think she’s really into the Turtles.

Hell hath no fury like a woman disapproved of...
Hell hath no fury like a woman who's discovered a shunned turtle...
Hell hath no fury like a woman who might have been served fajitas.

Go see Catherine as she's quite bloody brilliant. The premise is so good and superbly delivered.

Catherine is a star already, and if you do come out with a sore jaw from laughing and a sore gut from being suckered punched, then you weren't listening.

I saw Catherine Bohart last night (1/8) and absolutely loved her! It was the second time I have seen her perform and she did not disappoint, I was laughing the entire time. Her ability to segway back and forth through multiple stories is perfect and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Catherine, please keep Venus in your show because like you, I think it is a totally important message and it was delivered hilariously!
Over all this show is funny, cleaver, real and important!

Last year Catherine Bohart’s show ‘Immaculate’ displeased one lady in a yellow cardigan so much she complained that it was disgusting that Catherine talked about her sex life on stage, which she barely did. So that decided Ms Bohart that … Read More...

Fest (3/5 stars) 92 days ago

Ten minutes in, and we're already onside. "Are we doing this?" she asks. "Yes!" is the resounding call, energetically given even by the older gent in the front row, who already knows he's in for a bumpy ride with the sex stuff. Because that's where we're heading, after a tightass...

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 97 days ago

Writing a Fringe show on the premise of an audience member who hated your show last year is a bold move, but Catherine Bohart pulls it off and even manages to make a political point out of it. Unashamedly queer and open about all things sexual, it is a breath...

Mind what you do with your face if you’re at the front of Catherine Bohart’s show – you might end up inspiring next year’s material. A sour-faced, yellow-jumpered audience member last year described Bohart as “disgusting” for discussing her sex life a little, so this year she’s going to discuss...

It wouldn't have mattered why Catherine Bohart felt the need to write an entire show to spite an audience member from last year - I still would have been passionately in favour of it. But, woman in the yellow cardigan, Lemon has some things you need to hear - Bohart's...
