Shappi Khorsandi Announces 2019 Tour - 'Skittish Warrior...Confessions Of A Club Comic'
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 she sets out on tour to 38 more welcoming destinations around the UK this spring with her newest show Skittish Warrior...Confessions of a Club Comic. This brand new hour brings sharp-tongued gags, cultural observation and whatever else is in her easily distracted mind at the time.
Tickets for Skittish Warrior...Confessions of a Club Comic go on sale from Friday 26th October from www.shappi.co.uk with presale available from Wednesday 26th October at 10am. Please see full dates and venue listings below.
Throughout her comedy career Shappi has notched up numerous high profile television including; Live At The Apollo (BBC ONE), Mock The Week (BBC TWO), Channel 4's Comedy Gala At The O2 (Channel 4, 2010 - 2016), Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC ONE), The Graham Norton Show (BBC ONE), Have I Got News For You (BBC ONE) and her own Comedy Store Special for Comedy Central. She also had the honour of being nominated at the prestigious British Comedy Awards in the Best Female Comic category up against fellow nominees Jo Brand and Sarah Millican. Shappi has also appeared as a panelist on ITV1's Loose Women and BBC ONE's Question Time.
In November 2017 Shappi took a hiatus from the stand-up stage 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.
Shappi is also no stranger to radio and has previously hosted three series on BBC Radio 4 - two series of Shappi Talk plus the recently aired Homework. She has also made regular appearances on BBC Radio 4's flagship shows Loose Ends, Front Row, Midweek and Today.
Shappi is a best-selling author of two warmly received books, having released A Beginners Guide to Acting English in 2009, followed by her fantastic debut novel Nina Is Not OK, published by Ebury in July 2016.
Most recently, Shappi teamed up with comedians Jenny Éclair and Natalie Haynes to write a new musical comedy called Women in Power as part of Nuffield Southampton Theatres' latest season. Based on Greek classic The Assembly Women by Aristophanes, this ran throughout September 2018.
Since 2015, Shappi has held the role of President of Humanists UK (previously the British Humanists Association).
