Gina Yashere Writes Memoir

Comedian Gina Yashere has written her autobiography.

Cack-Handed will touch on issues of social class, racism and sexuality in a collection of stories that reveal how Yashere's unconventional upbringing as a child of Nigerian immigrants in working-class London became the foundation of her incredibly successful career as an international comic.

Comedy Special: Gina Yashere plus Funmbi Omotayo and Kojo, British Library

Enjoy an evening of laughs from some of our finest comedy talent, headlined by one of Britain’s favourite stand-ups, Gina Yashere. This is a rare chance to see Yashere in the UK as these days she spends a lot of time in America, having broken through on the other side of the Atlantic in the talent show Last Comic Standing. Yashere is joined by the fantastic Funmbi Omotayo, with his laid back but razor sharp lines on life in London and Nigeria.


Opinion: How Long Can You Last Without A Drink?

I went to see Gina Yashere at the Udderbelly last night. Good fun, never less then entertaining, discussing everything from the Woolwich killing and the Ohio hostages to needing reading glasses and hovering above the toilet seat to avoid nasty germs. But being the pedant that I am I had one major gripe. The programme said that the show started at 9pm and the running time was 60 minutes.
