Top 10 female stand-ups
9# Shazia Mirza
Being a stand-up requires Herculean levels of bravery, but being a Muslim comic, in a hijab, opening your post 9/11 sets with 'my name's Shazia Mirza, at least that's what it says on my pilot's license' is pretty much off the chart. As if that wasn't enough she also let her body hair bloom for a BBC3 show called 'F*** off, I'm a hairy woman'. Fearless, and very funny.
