Is Shazia Mirza Married?

Her parents just wanted her to lead a normal life with a husband and settle down, but after finding success as a stand-up comedian, she had other ideas. Shazia Mirza has been making jokes about Muslim men and making audiences laugh.

She is not a type of a woman who would wear a burka and follow her husband and have children. Even though she is still unmarried, she thinks some Muslim men are hot and went as far as labeling them as hairy and macho.

In her recent appearance on ITV panel show, where she talked briefly about her latest show, “The Kardashians Made Me Do It” she says lightheartedly that even ISIS men are hot and that was the reason why some British girls left the UK for Syria.

She had to face an onslaught of negative comments on social media when she made the joke on TV regarding the ISIS terrorists, but many also got her joke and said that they would happily buy a ticket for her show.

Asked about what qualities she seeks in men or a partner, she had said many years back she had grown up appreciating James Bond and Simon Cowell. But she also told The Guardian about a particular type of men she fancies on 3 August 2008, “I always fancy the gay guys. They're so wonderful and lovely, compared to all the poor ugly straights.”
