Ayesha Hazarika: Tales From The Pink Bus – Edinburgh Preview, Funny Women
Ex-political adviser turned comedy crowd pleaser
Ayesha Hazarika spent eight years as political adviser to Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband. Before working for the Labour party, she was a standup comedian – who knew? In her first show since leaving frontline politics, Ayesha ponders the big questions. Where did it all go wrong for Labour? When it comes to real power, where are the women? And how on earth did a hardcore feminist end up touring the country in a pink bus? Over 16s only. Valid ID required
"The way mainstream politics marginalises women is no laughing matter…except when Ayesha gives her outsider’s insider view of the mechanisms. Horribly funny."
