Gina Yashere returns to crowds of laughter!

One of this country’s most sought after comediennes returns to the Harrow Arts Centre for a sell out gig. Keeping her audience in stitches, Gina recalls her many mishaps during an array of thrill-seeking holidays. But despite the spills, she keeps on travelling – and Friday saw her filling the Grade II listed “Elliot Hall”, part of the former Royal Commercial Travellers’ School in Hatch End.

Gina decided 3 years ago to up sticks and move to Hollywood, and she’s not done too bad with regular appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and now her own 1 hour stand up special airing on Showtime. Gina flew over on Thursday from the sunshine of LA to attend the show in Harrow on Friday (28th) for the second date of her “Gina Yashere Live in Colour” tour.

Keith Chilvers spoke to Gina on the Community Sequence last Saturday, you can listen to the interview below
