Shappi Khorsandi - Oh My Country

OH MY COUNTRY!' From Morris Dancing to Morrissey
Shappi is celebrating the fortieth anniversary of her arrival in Britain.She's reclaiming patriotism, sending a love letter to her adopted land. Please don’t come if you’re a skinhead (though naturally bald folk are welcome).

Star of Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Have I Got News for You and Q.I, she is back with a brand new show for 2016. She has whip-crack jokes and is effortlessly funny as she handles every subject with a razor sharp wit, softened only by her deliciouslymischievous delivery and endless charm.

Shappi Khorsandi is also the best selling author of ‘A Beginners Guide to Acting English’ and her debut novel ‘Nina is not OK’ is published by Ebury in July 2016. Shappi was also recently elected president of the British Humanist society.

Mark Thomas

Mark Thomas (U)

Few predicted the events of 2016. And even fewer seem

to know where we are going. Mark Thomas sets out to

discover what the future has in store for us by collecting

and examining his own predictions and those of his

audiences before gambling on their outcome. By making

futurologists of us all, he will create a fantastical, hilarious

and possibly accurate vision of the world. And maybe

even make a few quid on the side.

Kathy Lette

“Women are each other’s human wonder bras – uplifting,

supportive and making each other look bigger and

better.” So says Kathy Lette, funny, feminist author, who

invites you to her new show, Girls’ Night Out.

It’s a psychological strip-tease taking us from Puberty

Blues to Menopause Blues, with tales of love, lust, men,

marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, mastitis, sexist bosses,

teenage-daughter-wrangling, ageing, toy-boys, making

the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic and

Close Encounters of the George Clooney Kind, en route.

So, grab your girlfriends and come along. Wit, warmth

and full frontal frankness, guaranteed. (Men, attend at

your own risqué!)
