Hampstead Comedy Show: Shazia Mirza, Craig Murray, Bobby Mair, Ivor Dembina
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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, The Now Show, Last Comic Standing on NBC and CBS’s 60 Minutes.
A practising Muslim, Shazia is known for her deadpan delivery on her observations of her religious world. She headlines all over the world and has performed solo tours in the US, Sweden, Denmark, France, India, Holland and Germany.
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)
'The Lenny Bruce of female stand-up' (Metro).
Shazia Mirza tour dates
You may recognise Craig from fronting a national advertising campaign for Plusnet Broadband.
A highly sought-after act on the UK comedy circuit and one of comedy's fastest rising stars.
An instant crowd pleaser, Murray's charismatic, mock-confrontational style makes him popular with audiences wherever he gigs. Craig was a Finalist at the Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year 2009.
'Craig Murray knows his comedy roots… his material was well presented and recognisably funny' (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
Craig Murray tour dates
A comedian from Toronto who was voted 'Best Newcomer' at the Canadian Comedy Awards and has appeared in the UK on Russell Howard's Good News, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Hour, Sweat the Small Stuff and Virtually Famous.
He is also a 3rd cousin of Canadian pop-star Justin Bieber - although he claims that they have never met.
'Mair exudes a kind of effortless, awkwardness and brings to it something fresh and downright disturbing. A bright, dark future surely awaits' (The Stage)
'He's either going to be a huge international comedy star or the funniest homeless man ever' (Jimmy Carr).
Bobby Mair tour dates
A London-based Jewish comedian who usually gives great value for money by doing a double show of his solo work. Ivor Dembina runs the Hampstead Comedy Club which he founded in 1994.
'Acclaimed Jewish comedian Ivor Dembina' (The Guardian)
'The success of the performance was down to Dembina's delivery, each quick fire gag delivered with the stereotypical panache natural to this veteran of the Jewish comedy scene. I would urge you to go and see what is an excellent show' (http://www.BroadwayBaby.com).
