TOP female Muslim stand-up comic Shazia Mirza is the headline act at the next Funny First Mondays comedy night next week.
She worked as a science teacher before beginning her comedy career in 2000 and has been in demand ever since, both in this country and in the States.
Having worked her way up the comedy ladder, her laconic one-liners and stereotype-busting observations have kept her constantly in demand on the comedy circuit.
Appearances on programmes such as Have I Got News For You have helped make her a household name.
