Delivered with a razor sharp wit, softened only by her deliciously mischievous delivery and endless charm, Shappi Khorsandi presents England's unsung heroine, Emma Hamilton.
For too many years she has been known as just ‘Nelson's mistress' and a bit of a harlot (you get ONE job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation...). Women's lib wasn't a 'thing' in Georgian times, Emma moved mountains to haul herself from 'scullery maid' to 'Lady Hamilton'. Yes, she occasionally danced on tables naked to get ahead in life, but who hasn't?
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., Shappi Khorsandi's whip-cracking UK tour takes to the road and pulls into Bristol this February.
She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency
Seriously funny and suprisingly filthy
Makes live comedy thrilling
- Venue: Bristol Old Vic
