Kitty Flanagan was born in 1968 (age 54 years) in Manly, Australia. Her father, John Flanagan, is an Australian author, best known for the Ranger’s Apprentice and Brotherband novel series. Her sister, Penny Flanagan, is a musician and one half of 1990s indie band Club Hoy; she often appears in Kitty’s shows. Her brother, Michael, is a chef and runs a coffee shop in the snowfields of Japan.

Flanagan attended high school at Monte Sant’Angelo Mercy College in North Sydney. She became drawn to comedy in Year 5 when she appeared in a school musical production of Alice In Wonderland in which she dressed as a bunny and pretended to fall asleep during the performance. Flanagan said that “Secretly I always wanted to be an actress, but I knew that I didn’t have the mindset for it.” She recalls that as a teenager, she would put on avant-garde performance shows with her younger sister Penny and they would involve their younger brother Michael by dressing him in tutus and giving him dance moves to do.


Kitty Flanagan road-tripped around Australia and liked Western Australia so much that she moved there and lived in the Perth suburb of Cottesloe for a couple of years and later lived in Bunbury and Geraldton at the age of 21. She occasionally read news and weather at a country radio station, waited tables and lasted only three weeks cleaning and packing crayfish in a Geraldton crayfish factory be fore she resigned. She trained and briefly worked as a physical education teacher before beginning a job in advertising.

Flanagan began her five-year stint as an advertising agency copywriter in 1989, creating campaigns for products such as Quik chocolate drinking powder. After five years as a copywriter, she was fired in June 1993. Following her exit from advertising, she worked as a bartender at a hotel where there was an open mic night, so she decided to try stand-up. Her first attempt was a success and she then started her comedy career in 1994 doing stand-up at an open mic night at the Harold Park Hotel in Sydney.
