Shazia Mirza - Coconut

“What have I been doing this past year? Apart from sitting on the settee in my pyjamas, squeezing my ingrowing hairs whilst watching documentaries on Ted Bundy? I have been staring into space, coming to the terrible realization that maybe my parents were right. I should have listened to them years ago. Why didn’t I?

But people keep telling me I’ll be ok because I’m a strong woman. What does that mean? I survived The Island with Bear Grylls – who knew that would prepare me for what was about to come…”

Following the success of her critically acclaimed recent shows; With Love From St. Tropez, a riot of brexit, buquas and butt-plugs, and The Kardashians Made Me Do It, a searing and urgent exploration of life, love and Jihadi brides, Shazia’s latest show; ‘Coconut’, nominated for ‘Best Stand Up Tour Show’ in Channel 4’s National Comedy Awards, takes on the burning (and infectious) issues of our time.
