Caitlin Powell

Caitlin (they/she) is a cutting queer comedian, Funny Women Awards Finalist and general menace. 

Their whirlwind brand of stand-up blends razor-sharp rants, off-kilter observations, and silly bits. Having cut their teeth on the northern circuit, they quickly reached the semi-finals of Chortle Student Comedian of the Year, Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year and won The Comedy Store’s King Gong in 2021. They were a Soho Theatre Comedy Labs Plus alumna in 2019. They now perform across the UK, seen at The Stand, Komedia and Top Secret Comedy Club.

Their podcast Queers Gone By, hosted in partnership with Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK Season 5 alumn Kate Butch, is by all accounts absolute nonsence, but was labelled “utterly hilarious” by The Guardian and ranked #4 in their 50 Funny Podcasts to Make You Feel Much Better.

As a writer, they have had two sitcom pilots shortlisted for the Funny Women Writing Award and the David Nobbs Memorial Trust New Comedy Writing Award with Eleanor Mason.
