Ishis bubbly & charming stage presence puts you at ease immediately. Her energetic, playful nature draws you in. Expect silliness,
Formally, Ishi has been performing comedy since 2008, when she set up a regular comedy cabaret night. She was the resident compere of 2Funny Comedy Cabaret Nights, empowering emerging acts by placing them on the bill with more established Comedians like Sarah Millican, Gary Delaney and Patrick Monahan.
While running 2Funny Comedy Cabaret nights, she enjoyed gaining valuable skills as a promoter, event manager & bouncer :)
In reality, Ishi has been making people laugh since she was born. She came out crying & they all laughed!
Ishis first comedy performance was at 5 years of age at Primary School in Zambia.
She took to the stage before a Zambian school assembly of nearly 1800 pupils and teachers. Here she sang one of her grandmas favourite Amitabh Bachan Hindi songs, which was so lost in translation in Zambia that it caused a roar of laughter! Instead of running off in tears, she carried on till the end of the song, happy to be causing hilarity.
She has enjoyed a captive audience of over 800 on the Red Sea. All aboard Thomson Spirit.
Ishi has been honoured to be a support act for Signatures (Britains Got Talent), Sarah Millican; Mock the Weeks Dara OBrian; John Hegley; Peep shows Isy Suttie; Paul Foot, Patrick Monahan, Suzy Bennett, Shazia Mirza, Brian Damage & Krystal & Gary Delaney.
