Ayesha Hazarika, MBE, started her career as a stand-up comedian playing clubs across the country. She then took what she thought was a natural diversion into the Labour Party as a Special Adviser working for Gordon Brown, Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband.
Since leaving front line politics she’s become a much sought-after commentator writing for the FT, Guardian, Evening Standard, New Statesman and Grazia. Ayesha has also returned to her stand-up roots.
Her one-woman show Tales from the Pink Bus was a sell-out hit at the Edinburgh festival and she’s been in huge demand on TV and radio including regular appearances on Good Morning Britain (ITV), Sky Papers (Sky News), The Andrew Marr Show (BBC1), and Newsnight (BBC2).
Ayesha lifts the lid on what life’s really like behind the scenes at Westminster with brutal honesty and humour and asks what’s next for British politics.
‘Hazarika is terrific company – relaxed, mischievous and with a mind like a steel trap…go and see what she has to say.’ **** – THE SCOTSMAN
‘Patently super smart and extremely eloquent, she offers an intriguing insight’ – THE HERALD
