Darebin FUSE Festival#1: Kate McLennan

This episode is a collaboration with Darebin’s FUSE festival. Due to COVID, this year’s spring festival is being conducted online, which means everyone can get in on the action!

Our guest is award-winning writer, stand-up comedian and actress, Kate McLennan.

Kate McLennan is the co-writer of The Katering Show, where she plays an intolerable foodie alongside her food intolerant mate, Kate McCartney. The show launched on YouTube in 2015 and hit over 2 million views in its first week online.

The pair have also written a short-form narrative comedy called Bleak, which originally launched on YouTube before it was made into a TV pilot for ABC’s Comedy Showroom in 2016.

In 2017, having conquered the world of satirical cooking shows, the Kates set their sights on the chirpy world of morning TV with their signature brand of social awkwardness and unprofessionalism in their full-length series titled Get Krack!n, which aired on the ABC that same year. The second and final season aired to much critical acclaim on the ABC in 2019.

Kate has appeared in thirteen Melbourne International Comedy Festivals and performed stand-up comedy throughout Australia, the UK, US, Hong Kong and Singapore. Kate also toured India with MICF where she hosted the Roadshow and RAW Comedy competitions.
