Forward 50 | Catherine Cohen: The comedy chanteuse
Catherine Cohen, 28, leapt onto the comedy scene with musical monologues that pay jazzy, manic homage to anxiety, exhibitionism and her reproductive health. She hosts a weekly revue of young, diverse talent at Club Cumming. A Houston native, Cohen can now be seen beyond the crowded cabaret space, making scene-stealing appearances in HBO’s “High Maintenance” and Comedy Central’s “Broad City.” Next up for Cohen — one of TimeOut’s 2018 NYC Comedians to Watch Out For — is a role in Michael Showalter’s “The Lovebirds.” Those who can’t wait for that film’s 2020 release date can have the “Look at Me” singer with them constantly, thanks to her podcast “Seek Treatment.”
