Katie Mulgrew at the Beat The Frog World Series Final
This spritely 24-year-old has an open and likeable style that gives her an easy rapport with the audience. Behind the bonhomie, thereís a slightly cynical edge, but itís all presented with engaging wide-eyed enthusiasm.
Not much of the material Ė about hen parties, speed dating and phrasebooks - will be taken home to tell your friends the next day, but itís fun to spend time in her company.
Thereís a touch of the Lucy Porter to her, in both the things that make her set so entertaining and the things itís lacking.

Tuesday 3rd Jul, '07-
Saw Katie comparing at Leeds House of Fun and she was definitely funny. Engaged the audience very well, was charming, witty and a generally fantastic compare for the night.
Seen her twice now, She is indeed nice. But definitely not funny.
Really enjoyed Katie's warm funny comparing skills in Friday night. Definitely one to watch!
Tonight Kate exuded charm and wit as well as all the professional traits you expect from a good compere . She showed the confidence to boss the room when she had to and indeed carried the room with her . All in all a good performance as compere is always a trick unto itself .
She was very funny and has heaps of charisma and talent. One to watch for future I'd say.
Great compare at a smaller club. Funny and natural.
Makes her dad (Jimmy Cricket, dated 70s 'comedian') look funny. How on earth does she earn a living? Saw her on a strong bill and she stuck out like a sore thumb. Appalling lack of talent and humour.
Dreadful one-liners? her dad is Jimmy Cricket. It's in the blood
|Prepare for the comedy apocalypse
Katie Mulgrew looks to a future without stand-up (but more zombies)
