Catherine TateCatherine Tate
A graduate of the Central School of Speech and Drama and Royal National Theatre, London-born Catherine Tate spent a year with the Royal Shakespeare Company before turning her hand to stand-up comedy.

She appeared in the Channel 4 sketch show Barking, That Peter Kay Thing and The Harry Hill Show before becoming part of Lee Mack's Perrier-nominated New Bits show at Edinburgh in 2000. She returned to the festival the following year with her own, one-woman show. Parts in Big Train, Attention Scum and the television version of the satirical website TVGoHome soon followed.

After being spotting by a casting director at Edinburgh, Tate was offered the role of Angela in the Dawn French vehicle Wild West, and soon after filming wrapped, her own sketch show on BBC2, The Catherine Tate Show, was commissioned. In it, she revives the character-based comedy that brought her such acclaim at Edinburgh. The series was a sleeper hit in 2004.

Tate has recently appeared in the second series of Wild West on BBC1.
