SAHAR MIRHADI: DAWN OF THE GEEK

Dawn of the Geek is a story of self acceptance, of passion meeting obsession, and of stereotypes dancing in a dazzling Anglo-Iranian beat. We learn how she dealt with the recurrence of being shunned for Nintendo, left for wrestling and lied to by Walt Disney. Expect treats and lots of love in this tale of discovery.

“Now this is someone whom I am confident we are going to be seeing a lot more of… Very engaging…will end up either a newspaper columnist or a TV show panellist or both” – Martin Mullaney, Comedy CV and Cheeky Monkey Club

bulletins and an episode of the improvised TV detective series Crime and Funishment – an impromptu take on
everyone’s favourite not-so-guilty pleasure, the classic TV “whodunit?”
