Mike Shephard:  M*ther of All Parliaments
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Having written for BBC Radio 4, NewsRevue and the award-winning TinCanPodcast, Mike takes on the baffling history of the Westminster parliament with wit, rage and twisted logic, just in time for the Scottish people to decide whether they want it or not. Political intrigue, medieval violence and the post-colonial implications of Babar the Elephant are all up for debate. Well-timed punchlines and endearing self-awareness **** (ThreeWeeks). Shephard brings an energy and the ability to put the emphasis on the correct syllable that would make anyone laugh (Jeannie Jameson, Remotegoat.com).
