Born and raised in Manchester, England; now a proud Australian. Georgie Carroll is a Comedian, Nurse, Wife and Mother. This combination of Nationalities, home life and hospital has provided a 24/7 training ground that has nurtured Georgie’s naturally funny bones. Her bluntness and charm coupled with razor-sharp wit, give her a broad-spectrum appeal that can be put into any room, with any line-up, and shine. Georgie took out ‘Most Prolific Writer’, ‘People’s Choice’ and ‘Comedian of the Year’ in Adelaide Comedy Awards. Her debut festival hour ‘Nurse Case Scenario’ was nominated for ‘Best Emerging Comedy’ at Adelaide Fringe and ‘Best Comedy’ at Perth Fringe World. Her follow up show ‘Gauze and Affect’ is undoubtedly Georgie’s strongest hour to date. Collectively the shows have sold out internationally, with ‘Gauze and Affect’ breaking record attendance numbers for her venue at Gluttony (Adelaide Fringe 2017). Georgie has been blowing the roof off the Australian Comedy Club circuit since 2012, fine tuning her talent to become the world class comic, MC and writer she now is. Georgie has now embarked on a TV career, starting at the very top as a regular panellist on Channel 10’s “Have You Been Paying Attention?” and has appeared on Channel 10’s “Hughesy, We Have A Problem” and ABC’s “Melbourne Comedy Festival 2019 Oxfam Gala”.
“Georgie Carroll just can’t seem to help herself, she ends up making the world a better place no matter what she does and she’s damn funny doing it.” - Scenestr

Seeing Kat on stage is like visiting an old friend you haven't met yet. She's shared the stage with the world's best comics (Stephen K Amos, Steven Wright, Dave Hughes to shamelessly name drop a few), tamed a shed full of drunk miners, kept a 17 year marriage off the rocks and is currently being parented by her five year old. She tackles relationships, observations and random events with equal passion and her unique storytelling ability takes her audience along with her for the ride. Kat has been a professional improviser since 1993, hosted Gala Events and worked a crowd from the back of a cattle truck. She can be heard regularly across Queensland ABC radio and has headlined the best clubs in Australia and Canada. She is also the co-producer of the highly successful Ladies Comedy Nights in Brisbane, can regularly be found at sea performing for huge crowds on P&O Cruise ships and enjoyed sell out seasons of her original show Untidy at the 2012 Brisbane Comedy Festival and husband and wife co-production He Said, She Said (with husband Stav Davidson) at Wonderland Festival, venues around Brisbane and P&O ships since 2016.
