Shazia was born in Birmingham, to first generation Pakistani parents. In her earlier days she started her career as a science teacher, whilst secretly developing writing, acting and comedy skills at drama school, with late night gigs across the country. Her performance on the Have I Got News for You, made her friends and family realise the extent of Shazia’s ambitions. Her comedy delivery style of fusing contemporary issues with her personal experiences, blends with her taboo-breaking, deadpan style.
