Comedy improvisation with Brighton Maydays (Weekly)

Comedy Stand Up with Kate Smurthwaite

I am a Black Belt in Karate and have been practicing for over 20 years, competing each year. I am athletic and train at the gym 5-6 times a week which includes interval running mixed with hill and long distance running. I ran the Brighton Marathon and cross train in military bootcamps and high intensity body/gym weighted exercises. I appeared in Ninja Warrior UK on ITV1 earlier this year. I also do Pilates and Yoga and am a qualified Spin Instructor.


Distinction in BASSC Stage Combat: Armed/Unarmed.
