“Fantastically funny” – The Times
“Delightfully offbeat writing. A talent for sure” – Chortle
“A real sparky presence onstage… ebullient and witty” –Londonisfunny.com
“Star of the future” – Time Out
Shazia Mirza: “Her laconic one-liners represent something quite unique in modern comedy. In these fraught times, she actually manages to make being a Muslim woman seem wonderfully life-enhancingly funny. Anglo-Islamic understanding is now even more elusive than before, but if anything, that makes Shazia’s comedy even more vailid, and even more vital” GUARDIAN GUIDE
MC Sam Deards: “Disconcertingly brilliant!” Mark Dolan TV’s Balls of Steel
