Host: welcome Shappi Khorsandi
The Iranian comedian Shappi Khorsandi grabbed the comedy world’s attention with her original sell-out Edinburgh show, Asylum Speaker. Both feisty and flirty, she softens a razor sharp wit with a deliciously dizzy delivery and endless charm. Her fringe debut led to numerous television appearances, including Mock The Week, Lenny's Britain and The Big Read. She has also become a regular on Radio 4 shows, with credits from Quote Unquote and The Unbelievable Truth to her own series Shappi Talk. She’s also been seen on Live at the Apollo, Genius, and Channel 4's Alternative Election Night. Outside stand up Shappi is a sought after commentator on everything from Woman's Hour to the Open University, Question Time and The Culture Show.
