Gina Yashere  live in Derby during October for the

Sweet like Cocoa Festival

venue4_switcher3_largeLeading comedian Gina Yashere will be performing live at QUAD, Derby in October as part of the Sweet like Cocoa Festival. Described by The Observer as “One of 10 best female comedians” and by The Guardian as “One of the best comics in the world”, her show at QUAD is one of the venues in a rare trip back to the UK with a new show described as “full of hilarity and joy!”

Originally from London, Gina Yashere has been a stand-up and TV star in the UK following her comedy debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 1997, also making numerous appearances on radio, and the big screen. She is also known in the US for her regular appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Gina Yashere’s sell-out live appearances are legendary, her bombastic delivery, infectious personality and cheeky observations have wowed audiences internationally.


Gina latest show will be looking back at her momentous year. She witnessed the triumph of the London Olympics…, from her couch in Los Angeles, but still has much to say. She was able to finally let go of one of her biggest regrets: that she never got a ‘Jim’ll fix it’ badge. She discovered she could destroy a policeman’s self-esteem with the word ‘pleb’. And finally, and most momentously of all, Gina was forced to purchase reading glasses. She has A LOT to say about that! After the show in QUAD there will be a ‘Soul Simmitry’ after-party in the Café bar, part of the Sweet like Cocoa Festival.

Gina Yashere Live! (Advised 15+) takes place in QUAD on Saturday 5th October, 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm. Tickets are: £15 and can be booked online at Derby Quad: Gina Yashere Live. Places can also be booked through QUAD Box office on: (01332) 290606
