Welcome back to My Seven Wonders with Clive Anderson! Each week, Clive welcomes a famous guest and dives into the depths of their character with a simple question: if you could choose your own seven wonders of the world, what would they be?

This week, comedian and author Shappi Khorsandi sits down with Clive to share seven of her own personal wonders. Daughter of Iranian political satirist and poet Hadi Khorsandi, Shappi describes how she left Iran at an early age with her family to come to the UK.

From her early school days of adopting a “posh” English accent, to her award-winning stand up career, Shappi reflects on finding the balance between her Iranian and British identities. She also chats with Clive about a multitude of topics from British Naval history to the origins of slapstick.
