Shazia Mirza bringing new comedy show to Edinburgh

Fresh from being ravaged by hunger and sand-flies on Channel 4’s Celebrity Island, Shazia Mirza has announced she is bringing her brand new show, With Love From St Tropez, to Edinburgh.

Following her critically acclaimed 103-date sell-out international run of The Kardashians Made Me Do It, Mirza’s newbie is a show about lies and truth, nudity and the periodic table.

The Kardashians Made Me Do It explored politically correct liberalism, the intrusion of ISIS into young British lives and Jihadi brides and enjoyed four sell-out runs in London as well as the US, Sweden and Paris.

Mirza was recently seen back to absolute basics in Channel 4’s Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls, and earlier this year she took a speedy turn (2.07 seconds to be exact) in BBC2’s Top Gear’s A Star In A Reasonably Priced Car  segment.

In 2008, she was listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy, won ‘Columnist of the Year’ at the prestigious PPA Awards for her fortnightly column in The New Statesman and won The GG2 Young Achiever of the Year Award.

She has performed internationally all over the world and is a regular contributor to The Financial Times and writes her weekly column Dairy Of A Disappointing Daughter for The Guardian.

Mirza will tour the UK later month, with her show at Edinburgh’s Monkey Barrel comedy club taking place on Sunday, 15 April.
