During lockdown Kiri hosted Live from the Covid Arms, which has emerged top of the online comedy gigs during this period and was sighted as a cultural highlight of 2020 by The Telegraph. It has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest online pub; it had 6,215 visitors to it's online quiz. The Covid Arms has also raised over £140, 000 for food banks and The Trussell Trust.

A regular on BBC radio, Kiri has appeared many times on The Now Show and The News Quiz. She hosts a weekly show on BBC Radio Wales

Kiri is a writing/directing member of Foster's Comedy Award nominated sketch group Gein's Family Giftshop and retains those roles in the group's latest reincarnation 'TAROT'.

A regular on the live circuit, Kiri's last show Home Truths has recently toured the UK to rave reviews.

Kiri is a co-creator and co-host of the All Killa No Filla, a podcast about serial killers that has a gigantic following worldwide. Co hosted with Rachel Fairburn, the podcast's live adaptation sold out The Leicester Square Theatre in minutes and toured the United States. She also co- hosts The Pod of Wales with Esyllt Sears.
