The Big Gig Comedy Feat. Akmal

May 26 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Every Month Mandy Nolan presents a comedy night with local, national and international comedians. 


Doors 7.30pm Show 8pm

Tickets: Member $17 Guest $20


Featuring Akmal, Supported by Bron Lewis and Guest MC





Akmal returns to Ballina RSL by popular demand. Although we’re not sure who made these demands and how popular they were.

Akmal is one of the funniest comedians in the world. The fact that he has written this blurb does not take away from his genius.

He will be doing a best of show, bringing comedic gold selected from the previous 25 years. Some people have suggested that he’s doing this because he is lazy and could not be bothered writing a new show. These people are ignorant and most likely lesser comedians who are jealous of his talent and good looks. Happy ending guaranteed (for an extra 20 bucks).

*No kids, no real estate agents, no refunds.

Bron Lewis

Bron is a Brisbane based comic, who is desperately trying to shed her Melbourne skivvie collection to fit in up here. She shifted careers from being a highschool teacher to a stand up comedian when she realised the money was worse and the audience could swear at her more. She has three kids – one an infamous COVID baby – and she accepts rent from them in the currency of singular socks and eye-rolls. As you can tell, she only makes the most questionable of decisions, but she does them with a confused smile and dry wit.

Bron is a four-time winner of the internationally acclaimed The Moth Storytelling Night, and she is set to take the stage for the Grand Slam in Melbourne. Her love for storytelling brought her to comedy, where she has delighted in combining the two.

Bron has performed all around Australia, including the Adelaide Fringe Festival and has been featured at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. She has supported acts such as Claire Hooper, Sammy J, David Quirk and Geraldine Hickey, and they are all best friends now because of it.

Bron has a fire in her belly when it comes to comedy, and she has no shame left to lose. This is the comedian to watch.
