Shazia Mirza: Coconut

Sunday 31 October 2021

Shazia is taking on the burning (and infectious) issues of our time in her latest show; ‘Coconut’.

“I wrote this show over 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 find eggs this past year, Prince Harry told The Queen to fuck 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”.

Following the success of her critically acclaimed recent shows; With Love From St. Tropez, a riot of brexit, buquas 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, Shazia is taking on the burning (and infectious) issues of our time in her latest show; ‘Coconut’.
