“You're not thinking of becoming a Jihadi Bride are you?”
Would I do that? The weather in Britain isn't great, and the sunsets and landscape in Syria are meant to be very romantic… I'd get a husband, wouldn't have to work, and would definitely get a place in heaven. Yes I'd miss my hair straighteners and hot pants, but that's a small price to pay.
Following an acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe run, Shazia Mirza (Have I Got News For You, Last Comic Standing) takes her new show on tour. The Kardashians Made Me Do It is a searing and urgent exploration of life, love and Jihadi brides.
The Kardashians Made Me Do It is inspired by three girls who left Bethnal Green to join ISIS. The show tells of the confusion it caused as she looks into the nature of offence, the dangers of politically correct liberalism versus the sinister and terrifying intrusion of ISIS into the lives of young British Asian women.
★★★★ “Shazia Mirza is provoking laughter and large intakes of breath once again… brave and urgent” - The Daily Telegraph
★★★★ - Mail on Sunday
