KATHERINE RYAN: GLITTER ROOM
We all know the Dutch are direct. We’ve heard it a million times. We’ve experienced it a million times. But what I don’t know, as an expat living in Amsterdam, is, are the Dutch able to take it as much as they dish it out? If you’re up for the challenge you need to watch Canadian-Irish comedian Katherine Ryan’s new Netflix stand-up special ‘Glitter Room’.
Katherine Ryan’s stand-up is as if the logical side of your brain was also hilarious. She stands up (pun intended) to nonsense societal pressures (mostly created by the patriarchy) and dismisses plastic wrapped expectations for women, minorities and even men victim to toxic masculinity.
She’s smart, sarcastic, hilarious and certainly doesn’t fit in anyone else’s (glitter) box.
