Shappi Khorsandi: Skittish Warrior...Confessions of a Club Comic

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Fri 3 May, 20:00

Advisory age: 14+

Sold out


Comedian, author, cultural icon and - most recently - idiot who agreed to be tortured on 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!', Shappi Khorsandi is a woman of many parts. But live comedy is where she's in her element, and now - after her spell in the jungle - she sets out for the more welcoming destination of Reading.

A brand new show packed full of sharp-tongued gags and cultural observation, this is Shappi's warts and all journey through the 90s comedy scene, to breaking through on telly and then letting it all slip away. 

As heard on Radio 4, read in two warmly-received books, and seen sleeping in a hammock.
