Pan-European live promoter FKP Scorpio is expanding its portfolio with the founding of a new spoken word and comedy department, headed by Thilo Elsner (pictured right), which it said is intended to “bundle previous successes” in this area and expand them to include new artists.

The promoter said it is also looking to work with podcast presenters and other spoken-word artists.

FKP Scorpio CEO Stephan Thanscheidt (pictured left) said, “The establishment of this new department allows us to deepen and strategically continue our previous work in this exciting segment. FKP Scorpio’s portfolio has never been more diverse.”
