Shep has been on the stage for as long as he can remember. In the late 1980s and early 90s he was an acrobat, fire eater and juggler with a 3 man clown act, Circus in a Suitcase.
In the mid 90′s Shep was one of the world’s elite street performance artists, performing his unique blend of family friendly circus and sideshow on the streets and at festivals in 26 countries.
Around the turn of the century Shep was a founding member and front man of The Happy Sideshow, Australia’s Premier Freakshow.
Shep is the founder and frontman of The League of Sideshow Superstars and one third of the critically acclaimed sideshow masterpiece “The Dark Party”.
Shep and his contemporaries are responsible for the newfound popularity of sideshow and its establishment of New Sideshow as a performance genre in its own right.
These days Shep is one of Australia’s most amicable MCs, his street shows still wow audiences where ever he performs and his sideshow stunts are second to none.
In the last couple of years Shep has been developing a new skill and a new show. He loves bubbles and so his new show is the fun and funny, “Big Bubble Show”.
