Shappi Khorsandi

Falls disappointingly short of expectations

As Khorsandi’s reputation sky-rockets, her material about divorce and single motherhood falls disappointingly short of expectations. The show loses momentum for perceptible periods of time and if the jokes are a tad lacklustre, Khorsandi herself is characteristically effervescent, charming and still throws us a few morsels of edgier, un-PC humour.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 30 Aug, 7.50pm, £11–£12 (£9.50–£10.50).
