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).
Shazia Mirza tour dates
This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience. Barry has been on the circuit for five years and has played all across the country, from London to Orkney. This young star is hotly tipped for big things.
'Hugely enjoyable... a ton of great stories... one to watch' (The Guardian)
'Razor sharp humour' (Metro).
Barry Dodds tour dates
'Wayne The Weird is an outrageous comedian and magician' - The Southern Daily Echo.
'No-one in the audience will be able to ever look at rubber gloves and white rabbits in the same way again' - Creative Cows Comedy.
Wayne The Weird tour dates
Old Speckled Hen Comedian Of The Year 2010 currently blazing a trail through the Northern comedy circuit with his brilliantly honed observational material dealing with all manner of topics ranging from childbirth to eat as much as you like buffet etiquette and taking in Back To The Future on his mirth-fuelled journey.
'A generous helping of wonderfully witty comic observations about life's little quirks, relationships and human behaviour. Served by a Yorkshireman with relentless enthusiasm and boundless energy' (http://www.bbc.co.uk)
'Naturally hilarious, the highlight of the evening' (Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe 2013)
