Never miss another 'Shazia Mirza' show
Cuckooland!: Shazia Mirza
Throughout the show Shazia takes the audience on a fact finding mission of Cuckooland. Everyone lives there though few know it. It is a place where anyone can be anything, do anything and say anything. A land where the inhabitants don’t give a monkey’s what anyone thinks. To hell with it! They’re going to say it anyway! We all know we’re a bit deluded sometimes but few can admit that we’re all citizens of the rich and diverse Cuckooland called home.
'Clever, groundbreaking and very funny'- Evening Standard
'Had the place in stitches'- Independent

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).
