Shappi Khorsandi Announces Short Autumn Tour Of SKITTISH WARRIOR...CONFESSIONS OF A CLUB COMIC
Comedian, author 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 following her brilliant spring tour and limited 7 night run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August she is delighted to be extending her tour into the autumn with a handful of new dates.
Packed full of sharp-tongued gags and cultural observation, Skittish Warrior...Confessions of a Club Comic is Shappi's warts-and-all journey of the 90s comedy scene, breaking through on telly and letting it all slip away.
Shappi will be touring Skittish Warrior...Confessions of a Club Comic from October to November with tickets for these autumn dates on sale from now from www.seetickets.com. Please find full venue details and listings information below.
Shappi also performs Skittish Warrior...Confessions of a Club Comic at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for 7 shows from Sunday 4th - Saturday 10th August at The Stand at 1.40pm. Tickets are on sale now and available from www.edfringe.com and www.thestand.co.uk.
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.
Last year, Shappi teamed up with comedians Jenny Eclair 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.
From 2015-2019, Shappi held the role of President of Humanists UK (previously the British Humanists Association).
