Podcast: Shazia Mirza The Kardashians Made Me Do It

One of the most talented and unique stand-up comedians on the scene right now, Shazia Mirza brought the tent down when she shared her brand new show with a full house in The Secret Garden.

In this extract, Shazia talks about what she believes was the true motivation of three teenage girls from London who ran away to Syria to marry members of ISIS.

‘The Kardashians Made Me Do It’ is inspired by three girls who left Bethnal Green to join ISIS, and
an unrelated radio piece Shazia contributed to the BBC which subsequently received a record number of complaints. The show tells of the confusion it caused, as she looks into the nature of offence, the dangers of politically correct liberalism versus the sinister and terrifying intrusion of ISIS into the lives of young British Asian women.
