GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME! FT. NIKESH SHUKLA, NINA WADIA + KONNIE HUQ
It's over twenty years since the ground-breaking Goodness Gracious Me skewered multiculturalism with its sharp, on-the-nose sketches about the default British Asian narrative. The award winning series that aired on BBC 2 from 1998 to 2001 showed up the reality of the non-existent “sarees, samosas and steel drums” utopia.
Join writer and cast-member Nina Wadia alongside, best-selling author Nikesh Shukla (The Good Immigrant) and cast member Konnie Huq, to discuss the significance of seeing yourself reflected in mainstream culture; the importance of great satire in an increasingly divisive political landscape; and to laugh your head off at some of the most brilliant sketches of our time.
In partnership with Gem Arts.
Presented by Words Weekend.
This is an all ages event.
