Meantime, here are a few testimonials from companies I have worked with in the past. And at the bottom of the page you can find a short video clip of me in action.

“St Columba’s Hospice were pleased to have Keara speak at our Burns Supper event. Her Immortal Memory was informative and witty.
A delight to work with and the audience loved her!”
Gillian Graham, Fundraising Manager

Headspace 017

“Keara was ideal for our event. She understood completely what we wanted. She was generous with her time, making sure she spoke with all the groups involved. She brought humour, warmth and her own personal insight that reflected the broader aims of the Festival.”
David McDonald (Headspace Festival Director)

“Keara interviewed Jesse Draper – heiress to the Draper Dynasty – for our Spotlight Dinner and asked her the questions we were too afraid to ask. It was hilariously entertaining, informative and funny and a good mix of business and pleasure was had by all.”
Belinda Roberts, WeDo

“Keara is a versatile performer and perfect for a mixed crowd. Her enthusiasm and professionalism added that special magic. She’s certainly got it!”
Jacqui Wallace, She’s Gottit Events

“Keara is a very funny, engaging and experienced comedian who can raise an electric atmosphere with virtually every audience. A Femme Extraordinaire!”
Chris Reid, Henricks Bar, Edinburgh

“Keara Murphy is a great comedienne who excels in the world of stand up comedy and after dinner speaking. Her observational humour has had me in tears of laughter as well as making me see the world a bit differently. She is a must see.”
Niall McCluskey, Advocate at Faculty of Advocates

Keara and Mat on Late Show

Discussing the life and loves of Robert Burns’ women with Ewen Cameron and Matt Davies on The Late Show for Scottish Television

“I have booked Keara many times over the years for a variety of events and she never disappoints. She has done Burns Night for me on many, many occasions and she always brings a warmth and enthusiasm with her, along with a deep and passionate knowledge for Robert Burns. Keara’s Response on Behalf of the Lassies is informative, funny, cheeky and above all loyal to The Bard. She also does a mean Address to the Haggis making it well understood and very funny with added mime and gesture for those of us not as adept at Scots as Keara.
One of the finest addresses I have ever seen”
Graham Blaikie

Keara at Young Professionals Burns Supper

Addressing The haggis at Trades Hall, Glasgow

With Keara’s background she was the ideal host for our unique community event. She understood completely what the event was about.  She was generous with her time, making sure she spoke with all the 21 community groups we had involved and I’m sure she spoke to nearly every single one of the 300 people who were here on the day! Her approach was just what we were looking for, she brought humour, warmth and her own personal insight that reflected the broader aims of the national festival (Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival) that Headspace was a part of. Thank you Keara!

“I had the pleasure of working with Keara at Twestival which she hosted. I had seen her perform live on stage before but the way she entertained the rowdy and often disparate crowd was very impressive – particularly as she was often needed on two stages at once. No mean feat – for even the most gifted professional – but this funny lady managed it with aplomb; reeling off one-liners on the hoof. As well as the live performance Keara made her international debut via the live stream, which connected all the Twestival events around the world in a Eurovision-style feed. Let’s just say: it’s just as well Wogan stepped down otherwise he’d be looking out for his job next year!” Annabel Cooper, Broadcaster
