Waen Shepherd (born 1971) is an English actor and comedian. Originally from Yorkshire, England, he now lives in London. Following his days as a stand-up poet and fringe actor ('Supple-limbed expressive effortless' What's On), Waen started out performing bizarre experimental monologues at the early Cluub Zarathustra, touring with spoof techno band and Edinburgh sell-out The Pod ('The future of techno comedy' Guardian; 'The musical comedy event of the festival' NME), hosting the underground cabaret Gritty Fingers and smashing up Cornish pasties in the guise of ranting Northern madman William Whicker. He graduated from Oxford University in 1993, with a degree in Philosophy and Psychology.
