Shappi established herself as one of the country’s finest comedians in 2006 with her sell out Edinburgh show, Asylum Speaker. A regular on Live At The Apollo and countless TV and radio shows – including Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Have I Got News For You, QI and Just a Minute, she also spent time in the jungle in I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. Whilst this is Shappi’s stand-up debut at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, one of her favourite things is pulling on her wellies, trudging through muddy fields, and performing at every music festival that has a comedy tent – from Glastonbury to Secret Garden Party.
Sunday, 18 August | 7.45pm
Following his UK solo tour last autumn, singer-songwriter Nick Mulvey plays a special one-off solo show at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre this summer.
Nick says “being up there on my own has brought me closer to my fans as they own the material too and sing along with me. They are my bandmates.”
