Diane Spencer

Diane Spencer - Hurricane Diane

Diane Spencer is a natural disaster; hear her simple plans turn into ludicrous chaotic events.

Engaging people worldwide with her conversational style, Diane’s cheery demeanour is a conduit for her dark humour combined with sparkling wit. Diane interweaves smart social observations with unflinching confessional stand-up.

Chortle Best Newcomer winner 2011. One of The Scotsman’s Top 5 Hottest Comedy Shows 2012.


“raucously entertaining” - Chortle

Kevin Shepherd

Kevin Shepherd - Confess Nothing

A violent criminal past, drug addiction, marital infidelity and an obsessive love of Nandos are all real life pieces of a past that make up comedian Kevin Shepherd. For the last two years the Edinburgh Fringe has been Kevin’s confession booth. This year his aim is simple: stay out of trouble.

“Confess Nothing” is about the opinions of a man who has dark, scary eyes and a warm smile, because quite frankly, he’s seen it all.


“Kevin Shepherd is a charismatic young man with a sharp wit and cheeky humour the audience was taunted, with varying degrees of force. But only the faint-hearted or excessively squeamish failed to warm to such an amiable battering, and, after all, audience involvement is what stand-up is all about” - Bahrain Extra

“He then gave way to Kevin Shepherd, who packed the next 20 or so minutes with as many jokes as some comedians manage in an hour. He switched between anecdotal and punchline based humour with ease, and left us eager for more” - BBC Lancashire

“Warm, friendly and fun to watch. I'd say in the next couple of years he'll be Mc'ing the big venues and you won't be able to afford him, so book him now” - Jason Manford
