Politics, power and how we lost the plot
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 2016 Edinburgh
Festival and she’s been in huge demand on TV and radio.
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
Not only is she extremely funny, but she uses her inside
knowledge of the Labour machine to deadly effect. Though always sharp
and on the money, she is never cruel and manages to create a world I
never thought possible. Catch her if you can.
