About the event

Shappi is celebrating the fortieth anniversary of her arrival in Britain.

She's reclaiming patriotism, sending a love letter to her adopted land. Please don’t come if you’re a skinhead (though naturally bald folk are welcome).

Star of Live At The ApolloMichael McIntyre’s Comedy RoadshowFriday Night with Jonathan RossHave I Got News for You and Q.I, she is on the road with her new sell out show.

She has whip-crack jokes and is effortlessly funny as she handles every subject with a razor sharp wit, softened only by her deliciously mischievous delivery and endless charm.

Shappi Khorsandi is also the best selling author of ‘A Beginners Guide to Acting English’ and her debut novel ‘Nina is not OK’ is published by Ebury in July 2016. Shappi was also recently elected president of the British Humanist society.
