Bio

Kaatje is an overly educated,  super disabled Dutch-American comedian. Kaatje survived a 70 mph accident: with youthful chutzpa, she thought skydiving at night, was a great idea. Years later, her original spinal cord injury progressed to what some medical professionals call 'the worst pain syndrome in human history'. 

Three weeks after the horrifying diagnosis of incurable adhesive arachnoiditis, she grabbed a mic. Kaatje could have taken it easy and watched TV from  her hospital bed, but since late 2015,  despite three hospitalizations and 11 ketamine infusions, she racked up over 200 stand up sets. Kaatje does comedy all over Albuquerque, shared a stage with Natasha Legero, and to this day remains the only comedian who was banned from Santa Fe Comic Con - for life. 

Kaatje is convinced neither Satan nor God/Allah exists, but if it did, Oprah is the Gullible who brought humanity The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse; Dr Oz, Dr Phil, Long Island fucking Medium and Deepak Choprah. Kaatje recently opened for Curt Fletcher. Kaatje wrote a Kindle Single “The Queen of Ketamine”, a comedic pain memoir, to be published Summer 2018.
