Shappi Khorsandi Is Female, Iranian, and Hilarious

Once upon a time when I was super jet lagged in a hotel in Amsterdam, I found one English-language channel on TV and stumbled on a standup routine by Shappi Khorsandi, an Iranian-British comedian who is fucking hilarious. (Sample joke: her son’s dog is named Benjamin Petanyahu.) Though she’s pretty damn funny in English, she claimed in her autobiography that she’s much funnier in Farsi. Time to start learning the language.
