Maria Shehata: Work In Progress

  • Monday01/05/2017
    7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Having moved 5,437 miles for love, award-winning Egyptian-American comedian Maria Shehata presents her debut hour of playfully sardonic stand-up. Charmingly conversational and brutally honest, Maria divulges the realities of giving up a glamourous LA lifestyle to discover that saying “I moved here for you” does not win every argument. Winner: Best Comedian at Hollywood Festival of New Cinema and Best Comedy at the Miami Web Fest. “Maria Shehata has a Janeane Garofalo-type swagger to her, both funny and entertaining.” – LA Times, “Maria is my favourite little Egyptian.” – Jim Gaffigan

“Maria has a second name I can’t pronounce, and she is very short, but she is very funny indeed.” – Angelos Epithemiou

“Refreshingly distinctive point of view.” – KoreAm Journal

“Brutally honest comedy.” – Daily Lobo
