Shappi Khosandi

Last night Charlotte and I had another very pleasant meal at Pizza express in Norwich followed by the first of two Norwich Play House comedy evenings we have booked.

A few months ago I took a risk and dragged Charlotte along to see Lucy Porter. I've seen and loved Lucy Porter before, but I wasn't sure if Charlotte would like it. She loved it and said she wanted to do more comedy. That suited me just fine.

When I read about Shappi Khorsandi (this website, quoted on the flyer, doesn't appear to be there yet) in the Norwich Play House what's on guide a female, Iranian comedian who was a bit of a looker really appealed. So we both decided to take a chance.

She was supported by her husband Kristian Riemer. Both were hilarious and more than a little risqué! The quote from Shappi that sticks in my head is “American's still don't know the difference between Iran and Iraq. We're the ones with weapons of mass destruction.”

Shappi also appears on Radio 4 comedy shows. If you get the chance to see her I highly recommend it.
