SHAPPI KHORSANDI Glee Club, Birmingham, 0871 472 0400, Thursday.

THE daughter of an exiled writer from Iran, Shappi's childhood has been in no way conventional. From mental illness to opium dens, she recounts the goings-on in the Khorsandi household with wit and warmth. She has a dizzy delivery, but don't be fooled - - behind that is a razor sharp mind.

Feisty and flirty, her latest show is called Dirty Look and Hopscotch and takes her back to her schooldays, when she dreamed of a romantic love affair with a rock star.

If you miss it here, catch it at Birmingham's Symphony Hall at the end of October.
