Maria Shehata: Work In Progress

  • Sunday02/07/2017
    7:00 pm - 7:45 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.

“I love Maria Shehata. She’s funny on and off stage. Unlike Donald Trump, I am not happy that Maria Shehata no longer lives in the USA. I think she is a truly original comedian and I miss watching her work.” – Bill Burr

“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

“Maria Shehata has a Janeane Garofalo-type swagger to her, both funny and entertaining.” – LA Times,
