  • Shappi Khorsandi: Mistress and Misfit

    25 March 2018 8:00pm

    Shappi presents England's unsung heroine, Emma Hamilton. For too many years she has been known as just ‘Nelson's mistress', a bit of a harlot. (You get ONE job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation.) Women's lib wasn't a 'thing' in Georgian times, Emma moved mountains to haul herself from 'scullery maid' to 'Lady Hamilton'. Yes, she occasionally danced on tables naked to get ahead in life, but who hasn't? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi is inspired by Emma, although she never wants hair big enough to house mice in.

    Star of Live At The ApolloMichael McIntyre’s Comedy RoadshowFriday Night with Jonathan RossHave I Got News for You and Q.I, Shappi 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 fantastic debut novel Nina is not OK was published by Ebury in 2016. Shappi was also recently elected president of the British Humanist society.
