Brand new stand up from Mike Shephard (as heard on talkRADIO and regular writer for BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz).
“Mike cleverly intertwines satirical comedy and observations on political themes, history and a host of other thoughts and opinions. It is intellectual comedy with bursts of rage and irritation. It’s fast paced, very clever… you need to have your wits about you to keep up!” (Louise Neilson, Buxton Fringe Review)

Sexy teens. An international high school. Mysterious deaths. Brexit. When a new girl starts at Sexiteen High School, her classmates start dropping like flies. Has her presence set off a deadly turn of events, or has a higher power been waiting for this opportune moment? Puberty can be tough, but surviving high school can be murder. ‘Glazebrook is a very clever performer’ (Sydney Morning Herald). ‘Mocking, self-depreciating and funny’ (TheAge.com.au).
Following two shows that sold out through word of mouth alone, Scottish comedian Fern is back for another Scottish hour. Scottish. As seen on English comedian Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, English comedian Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience and Viceland’s new series Brexit Stage Left. God, I hope I can cry over a dead relative or come across as sincere this year. As heard on BBC Radio 4’s State of the Nations and BBC Scotland’s Breaking the News.
‘An astounding hour’ ***** (List).
