- Shazia Mirza
Birmingham-based Muslim comedian and columnist.
She also presented an exquisitely-titled TV documentary on BBC3 called "---- Off, I'm A Hairy Woman".
Mirza gained notoriety in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on New York when, dressed in a traditional hijab, she would open her act with "My name is Shazia Mirza. At least, that's what it says on my pilotís licence".
