Matt Green tour dates
Winner of the London Comedy Festival 2001 and star of Eve Ensler's hit show, The Vagina Monologues. Shazia is lifting the veil on the world of Muslim comedy.
She is well-known for her appearances on BBC's Have I Got News For You, Beautiful People, Muslim Driving School, and The Now Show and Last Comic Standing on NBC.
A practising Muslim, Shazia is known for her deadpan delivery on her observations of her religious world. She works internationally, recently completing a six month tour of England and the United States and has appeared on BBC’s Have I Got News For You, NBC’s Last Comic Standing and CBS’s 60 Minutes.
The only female Muslim stand-up comedian, she has come a long way since starting out in Birmingham in 2000 working as a science teacher and driving up and down the country for a booking for as little as £10.
'Wonderfully life enhancing... Her laconic one-liners represent something quite unique in modern comedy' (The Guardian).
'No one can resist - the room erupts' (Elle Magazine).
'Clever, ground-breaking and very funny' (Evening Standard)
'Had the place in stitches' (Independent)
'The Lenny Bruce of female stand-up' (Metro).

'The crowd love him' (The Guardian)
'... one of the most fascinating comedians on the circuit...' (Funhouse Comedy)

Brimson would have been top of the class' (Sydney Sunday Herald).
