British Pakistani Comedienne Makes Her US City Debut
Why all the attention for the 27-year-old British-born Pakistani comic? The answer is obvious once you meet her. The world’s premier Muslim comedienne, Britain’s Shazia Mirza, is making her Berkshire debut performing her stand-up act “The Last Temptation of Mirza,” which highlights her unique experience as an observant Muslim woman and comic. Presented by the Voices from the Edge speakers series, this event is a rare opportunity to engage with Mirza in an intimate setting. The evening will begin with a stand-up performance, followed by an audience question/answer period, and then end with a reception.
