Catherine Deveny is a comedy writer, stand-up comedian, and a regular and often controversial opinion columnist in The Age newspaper.
Her voice ranges from polemic to compassionate, from joke writer to speech writer, from stand-up to sermons, from cultural terrorist to cultural therapist. She's nothing if not versatile.
Catherine has been named in the Top 100 Most Influential Melbournians - and called a serial pest, a professional pain in the bum, and a left-wing Andrew Bolt. Love her or hate her, it's hard to ignore her.
