#7 Performance and Poetry with Sameena Zehra
Sameena Zehra is a consummate writer and performer and has a great connection with her audience. Her humour is dark and her mind is absurd. She is a storyteller, political satirist, feminist and humanist with a unique take on the world, equally at home exploring the individual experiences of daily life and the larger issues of the world we live in. She has performed her solo shows all over the world, including Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Brighton Fringe, Adelaide Fringe and New Zealand Fringe, where her last show Homicidal Pacifist was nominated for Best in Fringe 2016.
Molly has been greeting my guests warmly but I think she liked Sameena best. That's pretty great. Sameena was engaging and thoughtful and quite frankly these chats just keep getting better and better and I am damn spoiled. We talked a lot about Fringe but given she's involved in four shows, I am entirely unsurprised. We also talked about the state of the world. Given the state of the world... well. You know.
