Shappi looks back in laughter

SHAPARAK (formerly Shappi) Khorsandidoesnt’ look likke the archetypal ladette. But she did her fair share of binge drinking and bad behaviour in the 1990s, recalled in her new stand-up show, It Was The 90s!,  coming to Bath’s Komedia on 20th March.

She lived life to the full in the 1990s. In fact, she says, she left an important part of her brain somewhere in a field in Hampshire. Now she is picking up the pieces in her new show which explores her life as a typical girl of her time.

From indie discos to unflattering crop tops, the show is a trip down memory lane to the decade where ‘kinky’ was nurse roleplay and whipped cream, and Shaparak found herself flying about London with hope in her heart, a tenner in her pocket and spare knickers in her handbag.

How does the decade of binge drinking and walks of shame look now without snakebite and black tinted specs?
