About Shappi Khorsandi

Makes live comedy thrilling’ – The Evening Standard

Britain’s best young female comic by any yardstick’ – The Guardian

Shappi is an endearing presence and possesses a charming self-awareness that ensures consistent laughter from start to finish’ – Huffington Post

Shappi is one of the hottest comedy prospects in the country. She’s feisty, flirty and effortlessly funny she handles every subject with a razor sharp wit, softened only by her deliciously dizzy delivery and endless charm. Shappi took her one women show Carry on Shappi to the 2008 Edinburgh Festival and then on to The Soho Theatre. In 2007, Shappi won Best Breakthrough Act at the Chortle Awards. That same year, she took her show Carry on Shappi to the Fringe when she was eight months pregnant, enticing at least one critic to plead ‘go and see her before her waters break!’ She was back in early 2008, taking Carry on Shappi to the Soho Theatre in London. Shappi’s show, Asylum Speaker was an Edinburgh sell-out, followed by an extended run at The Soho Theatre.
