Kat was recently named one of Just For Laughs’ “New Faces of Comedy” for her characters and musical impressions, and is excited to be taking them on the road! Her characters- cultivated in the Chicago, New York, and LA improv/sketch scene - have been seen on TV shows like New Girl, Brooklyn 99, The Pete Holmes Show, and Superstore, as well as heard in animated roles for Nickelodeon, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Cartoon Network. She particularly loves to play confident-idiots-who-also-sing, and is currently stoked to be playing a confident idiot - her first series regular- for an animated Netflix show!
