Comedian, author and, most recently, someone who foolishly agreed to be tortured on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, Shappi Khorsandi is a woman of many parts.
But it’s when she’s doing live comedy that she’s most in her element - and she’s bringing that side of herself to the Hazlitt Theatre in Maidstone on Sunday, June 2.
Her new show Skittish Warrior Confessions of a Club Comic promises sharp-tongued gags, cultural observation and whatever else is in her easily distracted mind at the time.
Throughout her comedy career Shappi has notched up TV credits including Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and has also been nominated at the prestigious British Comedy Awards in the Best Female Comic category up against fellow nominees Jo Brand and Sarah Millican. She has also penned three books, including her debut novel Nina Is Not OK.
And she’s happy to give her two pennies’ worth as a panellist on ITV’s Loose Women and Question Time.
In November 2017 she took a break from stand-up and appeared in ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! where she was seen nightly on our TV screens sleeping in a hammock.
Now she’s back and raring to go - and her Maidstone date this weekend is her only one in Kent.
Shappi will be performing at the Hazlitt Theatre in Maidstone on Sunday, June 2.
