Shappi Khorsandi Farnham appearance
October 27, 2011
Comedian, best-selling author, star of two series of BBC Radio 4’s Shappi Talk and 2010 British Comedy Award nominee, Shappi Khorsandi is back on the road this autumn with her brand new show Me and My Brother In Our Pants, Holding Hands.
Make sure you don’t miss her at her date at Farnham Maltings, on Friday November 4.
Fresh from the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the latest offering from Shappi is a show about a brother and sister who were best friends but also beat each other up.
It’s been a great 12 months for Shappi. Her 2010 Edinburgh show The Moon On A Stick completely sold out, as did her subsequent UK tours in 2010 and 2011 including a 10 night run at the Soho Theatre.
Earlier this year Shappi also had the honour of being nominated at the prestigious 2010 British Comedy Awards in the Best Female Comic category up against fellow nominee’s Jo Brand and Sarah Millican.
Shappi has also notched up numerous high profile television appearances including Live At The Apollo, Comedy Gala At The O2, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, The Graham Norton Show, Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, Have I Got News For You and her own Comedy Store Special for Comedy Central.
As a sought after cultural commentator, Iranian born Shappi has also appeared on Question Time and Woman’s Hour as well as penning columns for several national newspapers including the Guardian and New Statesman.
Shappi’s critically acclaimed autobiographical book A Beginners Guide To Acting English was released in 2009.
