Let’s get Katerina Vrana back on stage

Many of you remember our very own Katerina Vrana, we’re sure, for her fabulous MC-ing at Angel, her extraordinary hair, and her boundless energy. 

In December 2016 Katerina was a finalist in a “funniest person in the world” competition and as she made the top 3 she was invited out to Malaysia to perform. Whilst there, she came down with what she thought was food poisoning — but it was much more serious than that.  

Katerina suffered an intestinal perforation which led to septicaemia (blood poisoning) and sceptic shock. She was in a critical condition and spent 2 months in the intensive care unit in Malaysia. 
You can hear her story in her own (very funny) words here.

Katerina was paralysed from the neck down and went blind. However, her great sense of humour and her ridiculously amazing hair remained unaffected. There were three separate occasions in which she nearly lost her life.

The following year Katerina also developed problems with her speech, which has made it difficult for her to speak clearly. Hair update: still fab.

The doctors cannot believe that she is alive and making such good progress. 

After two years in and out of hospitals and clinics in the UK, Switzerland and her native Greece, Katerina can now stand and walk with assistance. Her sight and speech are getting stronger every day. She now needs full time care and intensive daily physio. Unfortunately, her medical insurance does not cover long term rehabilitation.

This woman is the future of comedy and a phenomenal inspiration to anyone who has wanted to follow the career they love. She put blood, sweat and tears into comedy (quite literally) and it was just starting to pay off. So… if you’ve seen her perform… or perhaps you’re a performer yourself and remember her as fondly as we do… then whatever you can afford…

Let’s help get her back to where she belongs. On stage, killing it. She nearly died!! 3 times!!
