Growing up Sajeela was taught that the Koran states that Paradise lies beneath a mothers feet. A difficult concept to grasp for a feminist suffering from aching smelly feet at the end of the anti-Trump #WomensMarchLondon.

In the 21st century are women truly any nearer to entering the level playing field in gender politics or world politics, When PM Theresa May is treated as no more than a hooker visiting the White House, Hilary Clinton made to feel responsible for her husbands lack of fidelity and Melania Trump treated as no more than a trophy wife suffering from Stockholm syndrome situation! What hope then for BAME women? Time to fight like a girl and bite like a nasty woman!

Hilarious stand-up and true anecdotes from the crazy multi-cultural world of Winner of AWA Asian Women of Achievment award.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 16, 2017  One4Review
There can be no doubt that award winning comic Sajeela Kershi is a born raconteur who always has an interesting and funny story to tell. So that it is of no surprise that she has yet another hour of quality material ready for her audience this year too.
It was a really good device that opened the show and warmed up the chuckle muscles prior to the substance which was how she has always been, up for a scrap, be it at brownies as a child, the ban on the burkini, ban the ban on Muslims entering the USA the Women’s March against Trump or even for a career given her ethnic background.
I suppose the harrowing story towards the end of the set shows off these tendencies, she paints the scene so vividly with her words that one feels they are there that really showcase her talent and the slightly less dangerous story that followed the funny side.
Ms Kershi has stories to spare, with her smiling persona, the well written material and stage presence, all interspersed with audience interaction it is a very good way to spend an early evening hour. Click Here
