State of the Nation:
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 recently starring as a guest on Matt Forde’s Unspun for Dave. Further credits include regular appearances on Good Morning Britain (ITV), Sky Papers (Sky News), The Andrew Marr Show (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), The Agenda (ITV) and The Today Programme (BBC Radio4).
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.
‘The State of the Nation’ is one of the best things to come out of British politics in a long time.
“Hazarika’s return to stand up is also public service, never less than entertaining”
“Insightful, humorous and at times simply ‘hide behind the sofa’ stuff” ★★★★ Edinburgh Reporter
“Patently super smart and extremely eloquent, she offers an intriguing insight” The Herald

Set in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of Millie Dillmount from Kansas who comes to New York in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East; her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage; and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name – or so he tells her. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. From explosive tap numbers to a Fred and Ginger routine on a window ledge!
