Shazia Mirza broke the mold of conventional comedy last night. Her harrowing, hilarious, offensive, moral show was a wake up call to liberalism and ISIS. It was inspired by three girls who deserted Bethnal Green to become Jihadi brides. The students packed their bags for Club 18-30. It turned out more like Club 600 BC, ISIS style. Shazia concedes these kind of comic insights are the reason white middle class intellectuals want her to represent Muslims. Conversely, Muslims just want her to shut up and get married. Beneath the veil of a very funny night was a vital message. This was driven home by the memorable video that ended the show. Sheer brilliance.
