276: Sikisa on law, comedy, dyslexia, and nachos vs dicks

 

Comedian, immigration lawyer, burlesque dancer, trainee wrestler, and absolute legend - it's Sikisa!

 

She tells us how she went from being a barmaid to being on stage, and some of the weirder things she's seen while MCing one of London's most famous open mic comedy nights. We learn what it's like to go on Live at the Apollo with a concussion. 

 

There's a bit of serious chat as Sikisa discusses her work as an immigration lawyer, helping refugees and asylum seekers to stay in Britain. We hear what she thinks about the idea of sending people to Rwanda. (Spoiler: she has some choice words for the Government.) Plus, Sikisa talks about what it's like to be diagnosed with dyslexia in your thirties. 

 

Then it's back to the usual old filth and nonsense as we chat about wrestling, nachos, and dick pics. Sikisa shares a very strong Scummy Mummy Confession (NSFW, but are they ever) and reveals how she knows if a man is good in bed. 

 

Sikisa is on tour right now - go and see her in Glasgow, London, Leeds, Edinburgh, Brighton, Southampton, Manchester, Bristol and Machynlleth. Tickets via sikisacomedy.com. Follow her on Instagram @sikisacomedy.

 

Sikisa's wrestling podcast, Wrestle Club UK, is available now on Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.
