Shappi Khorsandi presents

Renowned comedian and best selling author, Shappi Khorsandi, as seen on Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Have I Got News For You and QI, will be coming to Luton with her sell out show Mistress and Misfit.

Shappi presents England’s unsung heroine, Emma Hamilton. For too many years she has been known as just ‘Nelson’s mistress’, a bit of a harlot. (You get ONE job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation.) Women’s lib wasn’t a ‘thing’ in Georgian times, Emma moved mountains to haul herself from ‘scullery maid’ to ‘Lady Hamilton’. Yes, she occasionally danced on tables naked to get ahead in life, but who hasn’t? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi is inspired by Emma, although she never wants hair big enough to house mice in!

Age guidance: 16+
