Ayesha Hazarika

Broadcaster, Journalist and Political Commentator

Growing up in Glasgow with first generation Indian immigrant parents, Ayesha was a self-confessed outsider, not quite fitting in at school and protesting against her traditional roots. She became a little bit of a rebel!

Whilst studying Law at the University of Hull, she fell into the civil service and started moonlighting as a stand-up comedian in order to tackle work stresses. Gigging about three or four times a week, Ayesha developed a real talent and love for the circuit.

During this time she went to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and became was a semi finalist in the BBC and Channel 4 new talent competitions.

Eventually, work took over and Ayesha became a “round the clock” advisor to leading members of the Labour party including Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband.

Her unique position in the front lines of government, prepping leaders for Prime Minister’s Questions, live media speeches and policy changes means she can brilliantly comment on current affairs and tumultuous times in government.
