Artkomedy Brixton Comedy Club : Shazia Mirza, Sy Thomas, Bobby Mair, Nick Sun, Mike Sheer
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
Presenter, actor and stand-up comedian who has performed at clubs throughout the UK, including the Amused Moose, Comedy Café, Jongleurs, The Komedia, The Pleasance and the Comedy Store.
'Brilliantly entertaining!' (Three Weeks).
Sy Thomas 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
You'll hear many descriptions of Nick Sun; from erratic, acidic, confrontational, surreal and subversive, but these all become seemingly pointless when you let him loose on a stage. His approach to comedy is unlike anything you're likely to have seen before. A man confused and jaded with the comedy world.
'If you don't like Nick Sun, you suck at being an audience' - Doug Stanhope.
