She will be bringing her latest show, Oh My Country! From Morris Dancing to Morrissey, to the city’s Guildhall Theatre on Saturday, June 17.

Shappi is celebrating the 40th anniversary of her arrival in Britain by reclaiming patriotism and sending a love letter to her adopted land.

Star of Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Q.I., she handles every subject with a razor sharp wit, softened only by her deliciously mischievous delivery and endless charm.

Shappi is the author of A Beginners Guide to Acting English and Nina is Not OK,
