Shazia Mirza: Coconut

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Strap in for a hilarious and uplifting joyride into the art of survival in a world of crocodiles, coconuts, solitary confinement and alpha males with the comedian’s latest show.

Shazia Mirza asks: ‘What’s going on? Why is everyone fighting? Why does everyone hate each other? Who the hell is Alexa? And why are there no women left with real eyebrows? Women are in fashion now but the eyebrows come and go?

‘And why do all the right-wing papers keep calling me up for answers every time there is a paedophile with the same skin colour as me? Can we really educate people? Can we drag anyone forward against their will?’

Following the success of her critically acclaimed recent shows With Love From St. Tropez, a riot of brexit, burkinis and butt-plugs 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, Mirza is taking on the burning issues of our time in Coconut.
