Off the back of her successful 2019 Edinburgh 'Crusade' run, Esther is bringing her work in progress for her second Edinburgh show.

Esther's first show tackled the racism of the alt right and sexism of religious extremists. Now she wants to look closer at the stereotypes of the Arab and Muslim man. How has the middle east and sexism been united into one stereotype? This doesn't match what she saw in the Arab Muslim men in her where have these stereotypes come from? Is there truth in them? Esther just can't see that the Middle East and religion equals sexism...she reminisces over her upbringing in the 90' Britain truly guilt free when it comes to sexism? It makes her want to scream "If you are a sexist then you ain't no Muslim and you ain't geeza bruv!"
