SATURDAY 24th AUGUST LINE UP
It’s been a massive year for Nazeem Hussain. He became a Dad, his sketch show Orange Is The New Brown began airing on Channel 7, he recorded his first Netflix special and he was finally invited to speak at his high school assembly. But more than fatherhood itself, Nazeem is most excited about joking about these things and more on stage!
If you’ve never seen Nazeem, where have you been? Selling out shows across Australia, New Zealand, Edinburgh, London, China, Malaysia, Montreal and even Sri Lanka, Nazeem is a comedian at the top of his game. Twice nominated for a Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer, you don’t want to miss his fifth consecutive solo show.
“And just when you think you have him pegged, he sneaks up on you again, showing society’s conventional wisdom to be little more than prejudice, yet somehow picking out something side-splittingly funny therein.”
