Shappi Khorsandi presents England’s unsung heroine, Emma, Lady Hamilton.
For too many years Emma has been known as ‘just Nelson’s mistress’, a bit of a harlot (you get one job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation!). Women’s lib wasn’t a thing in Georgian times and Emma moved mountains to haul herself from scullery maid to Lady Hamilton … and yes, she occasionally danced naked on tables to get ahead in life, but who hasn’t? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi Khorsandi raises a glass to the woman England betrayed.
Star of 2017’s series of ITV’s ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here’, Live At The Apollo, Have I Got News for You and Q.I. Shappi Khorsandi is back on the road with her 2017 sell out Edinburgh Festival Fringe show ‘Mistress and Misfit’, travelling to 34 venues across the UK this coming spring.
The show comes to Hertford Theatre on Friday 13 April and tickets are on sale now!
