South Wales based character comedian on the circuit since 2012. A strong middle act on pro bills as well as opening and closing smaller nights throughout Wales, the South West, Midlands and beyond. Took her first festival hour, " A Fête Worse Than Death" to Leicester, Bath, Brighton and Edinburgh in 2016. Welsh Unsigned Stand-Up Award finalist 2016 and winner of Last Mic Standing in 2014. Karen is learning Welsh and has a 10 minute set in the Welsh language.
Esme de Flange, a lascivious TV gardener who puts the viewer in mind of Nigella Lawson. Offering horticultural tips and probing into gardening problems, you'll be invited into Esme's world of overgrown shrubbery, hard-to-find Clematis and juicy Cox.
Eirys Evans, a 76 year old village busybody in the South Wales Valleys who runs the world's worst raffle.
"Where do you go to find narrative stand-up comedy about the woman’s point of view? Not just observational humour, not just the well-worn paths of male sexism, but refreshing, wry and laugh-out-loud material with which all of us can identify, male and female: Sherrard does it. Warm, witty and winsome, with always the unexpected twist in the outcome and the constant readjustment of a view on the world. You want to bottle Sherrard and take her home."
Colin Sell, BBC Radio 4's "I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue"
"A fully loaded machine gun of endless gags, each shot more on the money than the last"
Mat Troy, writer and comedian
" Her characters are well-observed, clever and funny....accomplished with the warmth and edge of comedians such as Victoria Wood and Caroline Aherne"
Sally Stott, The Scotsman.
