Goodness Gracious Me with Nikesh Shukla, Nina Wadia and Konnie Huq, Part of Words Weekend 2019
It’s over twenty years since the ground-breaking Goodness Gracious Me skewered multiculturalism with its sharp, on-the-nose sketches about the default British Asian narrative. The award winning series that aired on BBC 2 from 1998 to 2001 showed up the reality of the non-existent “sarees, samosas and steel drums” utopia.
Join writer and cast-member Nina Wadia alongside, best-selling author Nikesh Shukla (The Good Immigrant) and cast member Konnie Huq, to discuss the significance of seeing yourself reflected in mainstream culture; the importance of great satire in an increasingly divisive political landscape; and to laugh your head off at some of the most brilliant sketches of our time.
