British Comedy Award Nominee 2010
The darling of the Edinburgh Fringe and British primetime TV, the infinitely beguiling and courageously funny Shappi Khorsandi makes her long-awaited return to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with a show about a brother and sister who were best friends, but also beat each other up.
Since last unleashing her charms on Australian audiences in 2008, Shappi has been busy making a huge name for herself as one of the leading female voices of comedy in the UK. Daughter of an exiled writer and comic from Iran, the trials and tribulations of Shappi’s upbringing and rise to stardom have already resulted in the release of a memoir, A Beginner’s Guide to Acting English.
Her revealing, self-effacing and very funny new show was critically acclaimed in Edinburgh 2011 and is the perfect re-acquaintance for Melbourne fans.
Newcomers as well as those who loved Shappi the first time around have a whole new world of funny to discover.
“With honeyed delivery and the kind of sweet effrontery that would charm a lamppost, Khorsandi is a comedy bonbon.” The Age
“It’s this new fierce Shappi Khorsandi that is the great revelation.” Edinburgh Evening News
“Makes live comedy thrilling, an absolute success, don’t worry be Shappi.” Evening Standard (UK)
“Smart, vivacious, innately funny and eminently likeable.” Chortle
