Comedy at the Pelican: Ria Lina TABOO RAIDER

  • The Pelican 92 Peckham Rd London, SE15 5PY United Kingdom (map)

This new comedy night kicks off with an Edinburgh Preview from RIA LINA, one of the UK's top comedians, and her 2015 show about political correctness: TABOO RAIDER. 

Ria's 2014 show School of Riason received award nominations and a commission for BBC Radio 4. This year, Ria's aiming for Comedy Central as she returns with her new show looking at modern taboos such as racism, sexism and discrimination. Are we really heading in a direction of enlightenment and understanding or back to the middle ages? Are the liberated their own worst enemies? Not for the faint of humour. 'Fearless, provocative and very funny ... wonderfully on-the-edge stuff' **** (Scotsman). '...electrified the audience with her relaxed yet biting wit' **** (ThreeWeeks).
