Shappi Khorsandi


Star of Live At The Apollo, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Have I Got News for You and QI is back with a brand new show. Reflecting on the good things (and not so good), she celebrates her haphazard, zigzag towards her dreams. She introduces us to friends, family and total strangers who have helped her on her personal Yellow Brick Road.

Her father, Iranian writer and comic Hadi Khorsandi, was forced to flee to Britain in 1979 with his family, including a young Shappi, following the Iranian revolution and his criticism of the new regime.
