SHAPPI KHORSANDI AND ANDREW RYAN PREVIEW SHOWS

  • THE FOUR THIEVES 51 Lavender Gardens London, England, SW11 United Kingdom (map)

As part of the Four Thieves Fringe (see tab above for more info) Shappi Khorsandi and Andrew Ryan preview their Edinburgh Fringe shows.

Shappi Khorsandi: Mistress and Misfit - Shappi presents England's unsung heroine. 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.

Andrew Ryan: Did You Get Here Alright? - Irishman, and star of BBC1 NI’s The Blame Game, Andrew Ryan returns to the Fringe with another offering of his “well-paced, well written show that delivers plenty of laughs” **** THE MIRROR. Andrew is trying to conquer love, life, politics, insecurity, fear, living alone, all while he is an immigrant in a country where he was recently told to ‘go home’. Andrew has found the answer, it is not what he expected. “very entertaining hour of comedy that comes in a very natural style” **** FEST MAG
