Kate Hammer Bio

Award-winning comedian and writer – Kate Hammer, is a fresh face and also entire person forged in the comedy, writing, and performance scenes, living it up in Scotland! They have performed internationally as an improviser, stand-up, sketch comedian, and actor.

Kate won Runner-Up Best Local Troupe at Montreal Sketchfest ‘19, as well as being nominated for three FRANKIE awards at the 2019 Montreal Fringe for the show she wrote, directed, produced, and acted in called The Peers (JFL Best Comedy, Segal Centre Best Theatre Company, and Freestanding Room’s Making Big Things Happen in Small Spaces). She was awarded the Excellence in Playwriting Award at the McGill Theatre Festival, and published a feminist anthology in 2018 that supremely upset one straight, white man (and maybe more!!). She was invited to present her play, Waiting for Janice, at the 2020 Queer Reading Series, and currently works as a Comedy and Script Consultant for several projects, some of which are being funded by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation!

Kate Hammer “Head Shark” knows a lot about goats and their cheese, so please feel free to start up a conversation anytime you see fit, in any way safe and possible.
