Headliner: Maria Shehata

Maria quickly made a name for herself in the UK, performing at some of the biggest comedy clubs in the country and being selected by The 99 Club as one of the Five Best New Performers at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe.

In 2019, Maria has supported Bill Burr at the 15,000 seat Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, performed at Latitude and was named Pick of the Fringe at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe.

She can be heard regularly on BBC Radio Kent’s Steve N Allen’s Week, and she released the raw and quirky relationship podcast Frank which she co-hosts alongside Olivia Lee and can now be heard on British Airways.
