Scotland on Sunday

Shazia Mirza is the self proclaimed 'White sheep' of her Pakistani Muslim family. As you might imagine, her own life gives Mirza plenty of material to work with and, in this show, she busts countless taboos about race, multiculturalism and sex with enough gusto to make the Guardian readersin the audience squirm uncomfortably.
Mirza is very much on form and the nonchalant disregard with which she strides through several PC minefields is wonderful to watch.
She ends with a great, surprising set piece about meeting the Queen that should be included in the curriculum of all diversity training days.
