Shaparak Khorsandi

Shaparak Khorsandi is to tour her stand-up show Scatterbrain between September and December 2024.

The show's blurb explains: "Having reassessed her life through the prism of an ADHD diagnosis in last year's funny and touching memoir, one of Britain's most beloved and most scatterbrained stand-ups lets you back into her mind (warning: it's cluttered in there).

"Among other things, this show will be a love-letter to letter-writing, a trip back through her early years as a comic and woman-about-town, and a whirlwind tour of a hilarious, sometimes frantic brain. At least, it might be. With one of the UK's most delightfully shambolic comics, raconteurs and writers, all that's guaranteed is - as ever - a night of memorable entertainment.

"Although it might not be remembered by Shaparak herself; that's part of how ADHD works. And actually, we'll probably check in with her in case she's decided to start a career as an antique furniture expert instead. The diagnosis has helped Shaparak make sense of many aspects of her behaviour and personality, as movingly chronicled in her warmly-received book Scatterbrain. In this national tour of the same name, a woman who deserves the tag of national treasure uses her newly liberated mind as a springboard for a comedic rollercoaster ride."
