Shappi Khorsandi: Skittish Warrior… Confessions of a Club Comic

Start
November 4, 2019 7:30 pm
End
November 4, 2019 9:15 pm

Comedian, author, cultural icon and – most recently – idiot who agreed to be tortured on ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!’, Shappi Khorsandi is a woman of many parts. But live comedy is where she’s in her element, and now – after her spell in the jungle – she sets out for the more welcoming destination of Edinburgh. A brand new hour of sharp-tongued gags, cultural observation and whatever else is in her easily distracted mind this time around. As heard on Radio 4, read in two warmly-received books, and seen sleeping in a hammock.

 

“She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency” Guardian
“Has the crowd in the palm of her hand’ The List
“Makes live comedy thrilling” Evening Standard
