Alongside standup credits like C4’s Comedy Gala at the O2, Shaparak makes her mark on shows as diverse as Loose Women, Question Time and HIGNFY. She’s also written an hilarious account of growing up in a strange place: A Beginner’s Guide To Acting English.


Iranian comedian Shaparak Khorsandi grabbed the comedy world’s attention with her original sell-out Edinburgh show, Asylum Speaker. Both feisty and flirty, she softens a razor-sharp wit with a deliciously dizzy delivery and endless charm.

Her fringe debut led to numerous television appearances, including Mock The Week, Lenny's Britain and The Big Read. She has become a regular on Radio 4 shows, with credits from Quote Unquote and The Unbelievable Truth to her own series Shappi Talk. She’s also been seen on Live at the Apollo, Genius, and Channel 4's Alternative Election Night.

Outside standup Shaparak is a sought-after commentator on everything from Woman's Hour to the Open University, Question Time, and The Culture Show. In her book Scatter Brain: How I finally got off the ADHD rollercoaster and became the owner of a very tidy sock drawer, she looks back on her life through the lens of ADHD and shares her journey of self-discovery.
