Shappi’s ‘more contemplative’

Comedian and best-selling author Shappi Khorsandi is back on tour in 2011, including a date at Clair Hall, Haywards Heath, on Friday, May 6 at 8pm (01444 455440).

Spokeswoman Alison Peters said: “Now a single mother, Shappi’s new show reveals a more contemplative side as she muses over coming to terms with the lifestyle changes this upheaval brings. Perhaps having it all just isn’t possible anymore?

“Shappi’s 2010 Edinburgh show The Moon On A Stick completely sold out, as did her subsequent UK tours in 2010 including a five-night run at the Soho Theatre. She has also found time to host her own four-part BBC Radio 4 series Shappi Talk, which after great success and returns for a second series on December 22.”

Shappi has also notched up numerous high-profile television appearances including Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Channel 4’s Comedy Gala At The O2 (Channel 4), Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), Graham Norton Show (BBC1), Friday Night With Jonathan Ross (BBC1), Have I Got News For You (BBC1), The Bubble (BBC2) and her own Comedy Store Special for Comedy Central.
