Katherine Ryan announces a new tour

Battleaxe hits the road in September

Katherine Ryan is to announce a major new tour, Battleaxe.

The comic is due to appear on Jonathan Ross' ITV talk show tonight and she teased that she will break some news 'that my kids will hate'.

The new show, which promises 'a true masterclass in how to enter your Battleaxe era' will hit the road in September and run through to May 2025, and includes three nights at the London Palladium.

In November, she revealed that she was itching to go on tour again next year, but that the demands of motherhood were holding her back.

At the time, she told the Evening Standard: "I’m going to take a little bit of time now to do the stand-up circuit again, kind of start from the beginning and do clubs and pubs and open mic nights.

'I’m almost finished breast feeding, I feel like I just love stand-up but I feel grateful that people come to see me on purpose but I don’t want to do another tour until I’ve got a really good new show and get a babysitter.

Ryan, 40, has a son Fred, two, and daughter Fenna, one, with her husband Bobby Kootstra as well as   14-year-old Violet from a previous relationship.

Their family dynamic is explored in Ryan's current W show Parental Guidance, while she is also about to be a team captain on Rosie Jones' Comedy Central panel show Out of Order, with Judi Love fronting the opposing team.
