_2014SHAPPIK_PVShappi Khorsandi is someone I have been longing to see live.

Finally I got the opportunity and the wait was worth it. This is one  very observant comedian who has the audience in raptures at the stories and jokes she tells.

I first saw her on TV’s Live at the Apollo and from there I was hooked.

Her show at The Pleasance Dome is a treat with stories about her children, chess, public schools and her father  that has the audience laughing, gasping, ooohing but at one point groaning.

There are also a few moments of a more serious nature in which Shappi chats about her experience of racism in the 80s mainly relating to her father.  All in all a great hour of comedy by this comedienne .

 Shappi is appearing at The Pleasance Dome until the 24th August except 16th at 8.30pm Tickets are £12.00 (Concessions are £10.50 )
