Press coverage

This show is nominated in the Comedy Poster Awards

Existerhood is award-winning comedian Sameena Zehra's new show on the topic of how power balances are shifting.

Can we get rid of all the arsebiscuits without becoming arsebiscuits ourselves? What price friendship, when revolution beckons? What price joy and compassion? And what about the menz?

She says: "Intent. Consequence. Power. Control. These are words. I will use them. You will laugh. (Terms and conditions apply)."

Sameena's doodles

Talking about the below doodles, Sameena explains: "I make these when I'm thinking - it's like meditating - I can empty my mind and ideas turn up."

Below is an example of an original doodle and then the doodle coloured in. Sameena says: "It's very much how I write a show - doodling the outlines, and then filling them in with colour. I call them extreme doodles, because they are a bit extreme for a doodle!"
