Skittish Warrior... Confessions Of A Club Comic

Following her fantastic spring tour and upcoming Edinburgh Festival Fringe run, Shappi Khorsandi is delighted to be extending her Skittish Warrior…Confessions of a Club Comic Tour in to the autumn with the announcement of a handful of new dates in October and November.

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. 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.
