Katherine Ryan's £1.1million payday

Big dividend from comic's company

Katherine Ryan paid herself £1.15million last year, newly published company accounts have revealed.

The comic took the amount in dividends from the company set up to deal with her affairs for the year ending in September.

Ryan, who turned 39 yesterday, is one of the hardest-working comics in the country. As well as her many panel-show and live appearances she made the 2020 Netflix series The Duchess and last year wrote her memoirs, The Audacity.

And next year, the company coffers are likely to be boosted even further. Her series Backstage With Katherine Ryan has just landed on Amazon’s Prime Video service and remains one of the top ten shows on the platform in the UK.

She is currently filming the Sky romcom Romantic Getaway with Romesh Ranganathan and is about to hit the road with the next leg of her Missus tour, resuming on September 1.
