Shazia Mirza: Coconut
Following the success of her critically acclaimed recent shows; With Love From St. Tropez, a riot of brexit and burquas through the lens of The Periodic Table, and The Kardashians Made Me Do It, a searing and urgent exploration of life, love and Jihadi brides, Shazia is taking on the burning (and infectious) issues of our time in her latest show; Coconut.
“I wrote this show a year ago. It was relevant, funny, timely and I knew every single bit of it. Then one day in March the world ended. I had nothing to do, nowhere to go, and I did what everyone else was doing. I sat on the settee in my pyjamas, stuffing myself with Nutella whilst watching documentaries on Ted Bundy. I thought I’d better change my show and make it more relevant, no one cares about reality TV, celebrity, and me starving in a jungle, lets get real.
People have been struggling to get eggs these past 6 months, Prince Harry told The Queen to f off, Meghan Markle turned into the new Yoko Ono and there’s a few more black people on ITV. Things got serious and I have to do some jokes on this, while I’m playing to sell out crowds of 100 people in 3000 seater stadiums”. Shazia Mirza
