Event Information

Akmal returns with his funniest show ever in the history of comedy. Paramedics will be on call to transport audience members to hospital as their sides split from laughter!

“I laughed so hard my eyeballs popped out of my head.” (Anon).

Not recommended for people with weak sides or eyeballs. Or lawyers. NO REFUNDS.

His return coincides with the unprecedented popularity of small men of Middle Eastern appearance that’s sweeping the country.

Remember, if you go and see any other comedian, then the terrorists have won.

Known for his incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and slightly offensive way, Akmal promises this year to deliver a show that is punctual and jam-packed with words…some of which he will be using for the first time.

One of Australia’s most respected and accomplished comics, Akmal draws on his Arabic heritage, his experiences immigrating to Australia at the age of 11, and his disillusionment with religion and the modern world to deliver a stand-up show that is fresh, honest and ridiculously funny. Akmal may even mention one of the biggest mistakes of his life when last year he agreed to appear on the reality TV show “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here”.

Saleh entered the world of comedy in 1990 under the alias Peter Saleh (“so people would think I was white”, he says). Since then he’s performed in movies, on TV and as a regular radio and talk show host, and has written a book about his journey from Egypt and his life as an Arab on the Australian comedy circuit. Akmal made one of the biggest mistakes of his life when last year he agreed to appear on the reality TV show “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here”

As a stand-up he’s performed at Festivals all around the world including Edinburgh, and has won numerous awards, including an ARIA for his DVD Live and Uncensored.

This year, for the first time in history, he’s promising to appear in high definition 3D (glasses not provided though).
