Gina Yashere prepares for UK stand-up return, including The Albany in Deptford
Comedian and south London gal Gina Yashere covers everything rom the riots to Jimmy Saville in her new show.
The stand up comedian has witnessed a lot this year, including Britain’s triumph in the Olympics in 2012, and she wants to talk about it.
Gina has discovered she is also a closet OCD sufferer and has also had to purchase new reading glasses.
A former lift engineer, Yashere made her comedy debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 1996 and went on to sell out shows in the UK.
She also had successful gigs in Japan, Dubai, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, South Africa.
The comedian has also featured on a number of shows in America, including NBC’s Last Comic Standing competition, The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brian and Def Comedy Jam.
In England she has had even more success performing on popular shows such as Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo.
Yashere, said she is looking forward to the gig.
She says: "The show is literally a run down of my life over the past couple of years. I cover the London Riots to the Jimmy Saville debacle to why I cannot pee in a straight line.
"I have been away for a while so I haven’t been in the UK for long but the tour is now underway which is great.
"It is also exciting to start a new tour again. To come back to England is like taking of your bra and letting everything hang out and you can just relax.”
Gina Yashere is at The Albany Theatre in Deptford on Saturday (October 26). Tickets cost £12 to £16. Go to thealbany.org.uk or call 020 8692 4446.
