>>THANK YOU! HI, EVERYBODY! OH, I AM SO HAPPY TO BE HERE! I AM HAPPY TO BE ANYWHERE! WHO’S LONELY? OH, MY GOD! ( LAUGHTER )
I NEED TO GET OUT MORE. I KNOW. BECAUSE I WAS GETTING THE
TARGETED ADS ON MY INSTAGRAM FOR THE DATING APPS, THE HOOKUP
APPS. NOW I’M JUST GETTING A WEIRD ADD
FOR A WEIGHTED BLANKET THAT SIMULATES THE FEELING OF BEING
HELD BY A PERSON. ( LAUGHTER )
YEAH. I KNOW, I BOUGHT IT. IT IS SO HEAVY. ( LAUGHTER )
I WAS THE CRAZY GIRL IN COLLEGE, AND NOW I’M JUST LIVING THAT
EPILOGUE. ( LAUGHTER )
ANY LADIES YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE ROOFIED? LATER YOU REALIZE YOU JUST HAD
18 COCKTAILS. WHOOPSIE! ( LAUGHTER )
MORNING AFTER, YOUR FRIENDS ARE CONCERNED. WHAT DID YOU DRINK?! THEN THE TRUTH COMES OUT — I’M,
LIKE, I JUST HAD, LIKE, THREE OR FOUR MARTINIS! COUPLE DOUBLE GIN AND TONICS,
LIKE SEVEN OR EIGHT SHOTS OF PATRONE. OH, I DRANK MEZCAL FROM THE
BOTTLE — BUT THEN I HAD A GLASS OF WINE — AND THAT WAS WHEN I
STARTED LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS! MY FRIENDS ARE, LIKE, GIRL! YOU ROOFIED YOURSELF! I’M IN DENIAL, LIKE, NO, NO, NO,
NO, NO! SOMEONE ROOFIED ME! THEN SAFELY ESCORTED ME TO MY
EXBOYFRIEND’S APARTMENT! ( LAUGHTER )
YEAH, THAT REALLY HAPPENED. I KNOW. EMBARRASSING. SORRY, BRIAN! HIS WIFE WAS MAD! ( LAUGHTER )
I HAVE TO DRINK WHEN I GO OUT. I HAVE SOCIAL ANXIETY. HAVE YOU GUYS EVER FAKE SMILED
SO HARD THAT, WITHOUT REALIZING IT, YOUR FACE CON TORTS INTO A
MASK OF FEAR? ( LAUGHTER )
I’M THE WEIRD ONE WITH MY GIRLFRIENDS. GO OUT WITH THE LADIES, YOU PLAY
“SEX IN THE CITY.” WHO’S WHO? ARE YOU KATY, CHARLOTTE? UH, I THINK I’M STEVE. ( LAUGHTER )
MY FRIENDS ALL HAVE HOUSES AND FAMILIES. I DON’T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE. I WENT TO PICK UP A
PRESCRIPTION. IT WAS $99. I’VE NEVER FELT HEALTHIER IN MY
LIFE! ( LAUGHTER )
WHEN I GET SICK, I JUST MAKE CHICKEN SOUP OUT OF LOW-GRADE
POULTRY AND I HOPE THE ANTIBIOTICS SEEP OUT. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) I USED TO HAVE HEALTHCARE AT MY
OLD JOB BEFORE I WAS A HILARIOUS COMEDIENNE, THANK YOU. I WAS A PRE-SCHOOL TEACHER FOR A
LONG TIME. WELL, THANK YOU. ( APPLAUSE )
THANK YOU. I TAUGHT PRE-SCHOOL FOR SIX
YEARS. THE WHOLE TIME, THE KIDS WERE
TEACHING ME. ( LAUGHTER )
THAT I HATE KIDS. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) I LOOK LIKE SOMEBODY WHO LOVES
KIDS. I WAS IN THE PARK. THIS BABY JUST WANDERS UP, SITS
ON MY BLANKET. I LOOK OVER. HIS PARENTS ARE, LIKE — HE
LIKES YOU! AND I WAS JUST, LIKE, OH, MY
GOD! AT WHAT POINT DO I TELL THEM
THAT I’M ON ACID? ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) OOOH, TICKLE TICKLE! OH, I’M KIDDING. NOT ABOUT THE ACID. BUT, UM — NO, I DO LIKE KIDS. I DO. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE KIDS OF MY
OWN, BUT I’M JUST FOCUSING ON MY CAREER RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN’T HAVE IT ALL, RIGHT,
LADIES? EVEN THOUGH THAT’S ONLY TWO
THINGS. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) I’M NOT IN A RUSH. DATING FEELS LIKE WORK, DOESN’T
IT? OH. ESPECIALLY THAT FIRST DATE,
YOU’RE JUST SITTING THERE, SUBTLY TRYING TO FIND OUT IF THE
MAN YOU’RE WITH IS A SOCIOPATH. I’M, LIKE, OH, SPORTS! HA, HA, HA, HAVE YOU EVER HURT
AN ANIMAL? ( LAUGHTER )
I NEVER WEAR MY GLASSES WHEN I GO OUT ON A DATE, YOU KNOW,
BECAUSE I WANT TO LOOK SEXY — ( LAUGHTER )
AND ILLITERATE. I’M, LIKE, OOOH, DOES THIS MEAN
YOU COME IN BRAILLE? I CAN’T SEE. ( LAUGHTER )
I JUST GOT GLASSES A FEW YEARS AGO, AND, LET ME TELL YOU,
EVERYTHING HAS COME TO LIGHT. I FOUND OUT I HAD BEEN SENDING
THE WINKING EMOJI, THE ENTIRE TIME. YEAH. THAT REALLY CHANGES THE TONE. OF YOUR CASUAL WORK EMAIL. I’M, LIKE, OOOH, RICHARD, THANK
YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PRIVATE MEETING IN YOUR OFFICE. IT WAS SUPER HELPFUL. HUH? OH! MYSTERY SOLVED! APPARENTLY, I INITIATED THE
HARASSMENT. ( LAUGHTER )
I KNOW. SORRY, EVERYBODY. I HAVE KIND OF A LOT OF DARK
JOKES FOR SOMEONE WHO LOOKS LIKE SHE OWNS A MUFFIN SHOP. ( LAUGHTER )
I’M KATIE HANNIGAN! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

    Bad

  • Daniel B

    I hate being negative in the comment section but I feel like I have to for this one.

  • Joshua Nouri

    Her 1970's glasses must be a prop, cuz she's beautiful!

  • brian554xx

    I rarely get a chance to use this truthfully:
    My favorite part was when it stopped happening!

  • Taylor Flan

    This was painful

  • slinkeepy

    Couple of good jokes in 7 minutes… i normally adore the female comedians but this one just didn't do it for me at all… seemed like trying to hard without enough substance

  • Putu Chris Susanto

    One of the best I've seen lately on the show

  • Thunder Cat

    Unfunny

  • Nina Vee

    She reminds me of Phoebe Buffay. In a good way. Very funny.

  • D. Alex Kablack

    saw her in the roast battles at the stand nyc

  • Blind leading the Blind

    wake me up when u get to the punch line

  • Stephen Duquette

    Katie …don't pause for applause…Too long looks needy , otherwise ok…

  • Craig Corson

    She's cute…ish.

  • Federico Figueroa

    Well done Katie! killed it 🤣

  • Gary

    Enjoyed it. Watched it on mute though.

  • Thomas Avery Garran

    Impressive, this woman has real talent! Excellent character development in a short time. Looking forward to how she develops her career. Will follow for sure…

  • eL graPa

    This was more theatre than stand-up…meeh

  • eL graPa

    the "I'm not really attractive, so you can find me sympathetic" function of the fugly glasses is too obvious.

  • Johnny Shabazz

    Nope. Maybe Hitchens was right about female comedians, after all.

  • Егорий Заболоцкий

    So cute!

  • enigmaPL

    When she mentioned how much of a chore dating is, I was excited to finally hear someone else say it rather than pretend they enjoy it. I bet she's into some freaky stuff. Sign me up! 😉

  • The Forgotten Place

    In the thumbnail she looked 13…

  • badmiddens

    Holy crap, this is painful

  • Laura Wheeler

    L

  • nonquintessentialone

    Best women in my life: all named Katie.

  • AHarrian Gibby8881

    too much fun

  • Michael Weston

    acting waaay too much. really unnatural, like she's putting on a play.

  • genethejean

    Sutton…Foster? 😜

  • jason clarke

    not one laugh

  • tenacious645

    Not bad at all

  • Dmytro Picky

    damn girl you are baaaad. change prof NOW!

  • aceshighest

    Roofie jokes were a swing and a miss… know your audience. Opening with “how many people feel like they’ve been roofied?” Is not going to get a large or enthusiastic response.

  • Stupa

    I kinda like this type of dark humor xD

  • Juve

    I never been this bored in my life

  • asynchronicity

    Lame

  • Gouthum Chiluvuri

    "At what point do I tell them I'm on acid"😂😂😂

  • Jurandir Pacheco

    How interesting.
    She was pretty bleh for me, as Zamata was for some.
    But as Zamata talked about race, white people were furious abou a just no so good set.

    This set right here only work with a white audience.

  • Manny K

    I need that weighted blanket.

  • Fox Firemaker

    I love her!

  • Starship Command

    Her voice sucks

  • joey ramirez

    Katie. The frames. No.

  • Melinda Virosteck

    She's hilarious

  • MrFester

    There she is, got to see her live. Loved her.

  • sccello

    Her delivery is super on point! Great set.

  • DasVERMiT

    Overall meh. I was kinda bored throughout, but there were some decent jokes sprinkled in.

  • Giovanni Gobbi

    She's wonderful, i fucking loled

  • Arnab Paul Joy

    i love her. she is really funny and cute…

  • Pretty Ugly

    Horrible!

  • manognya bethapudi

    She's one to look out 😍♥️

  • Vlad B. Toca

    Why are we applauding weird kids that don’t have jobs and contribute to society….?

  • Mary Rose Kent

    ‘80s glasses frames are back in?

  • Simon Randall

    FAIL.

  • Kristofer Paul

    I now know which day to avoid the west side comedy club in manhatten.

  • saud

    Excellent stage presence.

  • Matthew Blum

    Medicare for all! It SAVES money — TRILLIONS of dollars!!

  • Nacho Man Randy Sandwich

    I thought she had some good jokes, I mean they were recycled but she still was funny and not afraid to speak her mind

  • Good Idea Adia

    She's so funny!

  • Ratarue

    Amazing!

  • Sharona Maynard

    I love her delivery

  • Cristian Madera

    This was a great second half of a stand up bit. More from the 4 minute mark onward

  • Gryphyn Alvàréz

    Omg… so good!

  • Stir Stick Stick

    Made it through 3 minutes. Needs better material.

  • Mahmoud El Arch

    Carrie Mathison's sister !!

  • Danielle Spargo

    Omg she's so effing cute!! And funny too, loved it!! 😂 😂

  • Miao Li

    Yawn…bring Trump back

  • Kavriel

    Really good. Very funny bit.

  • Dr. Mantis Toboggan, M.D.

    Interesting schtick.

  • Ilyas Jawad

    I would buy a muffin everyday from her shop

  • Jay Perrin

    Psychopaths hurt animals, not sociopaths. But still a good set 🙂

  • Manibaal Lektor

    Still 2 attractive 2 focus on anything else. Damn it

  • Nissa Anderson

    Funny but not hilarious. Her style is cute, but she says “I’m like” way too much.

  • wirelesmike73

    Anyone who has been lucky enough to see her do a roast battle with other comics (without having to worry about sensors) will know that "dark" is just barely scratching the surface.
    This girl is wickedly funny and can write jokes that would make most people gasp in shock.
    I hope she gets more opportunities to show her wit to a mainstream audience.

  • Sheikh N Bake Gaming

    So this is white girl humor. Glad she is doing it but not my thing…

  • MyQueenFreddieMercury

    Asking seriously, NOT being sarcastic or mean. Are the 70’s glasses part of her shtick, or just her normal glasses? Big glass Are back in, but those are really big! 😉 Liked her comedy.

  • krylesangerbeaver

    Was very distracted, but i laughed throughout. Hope she keeps at it and comes to Just for Laughs.

  • enok82

    Hehe, go Katie, release the darkness… go full Jimmy Carr!

  • Ed Jackson

    My girlfriend had glasses like that back in high school. She asks me all the time why I never asked her out back then. I say "I dont know"

  • Hey There

    Hopefully in the future we'll look back on this and think, "millions of people went without health insurance back then? that's nuts"

    Medicare for All

  • Juan Amador

    The antibiotics chicken got me hahahahahaha

  • Arnaldo Capo

    Where can I marry this woman?

  • Kit Coffey

    standup comedy nerd here.
    not very good. keep working on it. the "me and my girls" stuff, the "I'm so girly," stuff, "dating is so hard," even self-depricating comparison, is so dated. not much original here. and get different glasses.

  • GeeBri

    😍😍😍

  • James Baldwin

    Is she funny? Why are people laughing?

  • Dung Nguyen

    I like her! The glasses, the voice, the delivery. All great!

  • MyKindOfCrazy

    Funny set, would have been funnier with a quicker delivery

  • Trese TZ

    I like her delivery….very cute

  • Seki Deschanel

    She's weird. I love her

  • scenepunk09

    Not a fan. She seems too fake and awkward. But not like she has social anxiety its like she is pretending to be a nerd.

  • Josh Poquette

    ugh gosh this one was hard to watch. Not only was her voice not funny but just annoying but her delivery was extremely amateur and the jokes were super unfunny and uninspired. Not much hope for her in my opinion she just had a sympathetic crowd, all she really did was make her tone odd on normal topics. No talent!

  • Nina MR

    She's too "Disney" vibe. Pass.

  • billy kirby

    Awful

  • Steve Doe

    Great writer, great content!

    As a standup performer, looks to be new in the field. She needs a couple years doing gigs just to know if she has a groove, then several more years to define that groove…pretty typical for most.

    I like the entrance, very high energy and not typical to most. Think she has the knack for performance, just needs the experience.

  • reket1990

    Jokes were great, the pauses were not.

  • Lord Armyn

    She would have been funny in the 70s… I guess. I like her tho …I genuinely laughed

  • ken vin

    Quirky but dark, I like it, I would watch her Netflix special

  • Preddy Shite

    I swear if she takes off those glasses, she becomes Super Girl… and I'd be like, Yeah.. I see how glasses could be a disguise

  • J S

    This is pretty bad.. . Her delivery, the jokes.. . And the stupid fake laughs.. .

  • holmesla0319

    I like her a lot but I definitely can't shake the feeling of her being the real life version of Sophie Lennon.

  • Tim

    It’s kind weird not having a mic, I don’t really like it.

  • ReKO

    Painful to watch
