The Fearless Globetrotting Comedian Kate Cheka
Meet the amazing Kate Cheka, our talented globetrotting comedian! Kate has lit up stages across four continents and seven diverse countries, bringing laughter wherever she goes.
Her comedy journey kicked off in the vibrant city of Berlin, where she not only performed but also organized and hosted two incredible shows: a femme-identifying open mic and a women of colour showcase.
Kate's exceptional talent has earned her well-deserved recognition, including a spot as a semi-finalist in the prestigious BBC New Comedy Awards in 2022.. She's also proudly held titles like Funny Women semi-finalist and One to Watch 2022.
But that's not all – Kate's impressive list of accolades includes being a finalist in the Berlin New Stand-up Award, a nominee for the BBC Radio 4 Introducing New Comedy Award in 2019 and a Funny Women semi-finalist in 2021.
In 2021, she was the first signing in three years by the Comedy Store Agency alongside other Comedy in Your Eye Alumni, Michael May and Chin Wang.
In 2023, Kate took home a content deal with Next Up Comedy and a £500 prize by winning the Funny Women Stage Award at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London.
According to Steve Bennet from Chortle, Kate "showed class from the start, with a fine, politically pointed gag about the billionaires who died in a Titanic-bound submarine. Every topical comic had a dubious-taste joke about it at the time, so it takes skills to find a new one, as she did. She’s a smart operator, but wears it lightly, mixing opinionated stand-up with frank and relatable ‘what was I thinking?’-type personal anecdotes, all delivered with poise. And she has cojones. Jokes about midwestern America’s contradictory attitudes to abortion and gun control may be ten-a-penny, but at least she told hers in the god-fearing heartland. An impressive set all round, deservedly earned her the Funny Women title."
With her infectious humour and incredible achievements, Kate Cheka continues to spread joy and laughter wherever she performs!"
