THIS MONTH FEATURING AKMAL
MC: Mandy Nolan – Support: Marty Bright – Feature: Akmal
Dealing with a Pandemic has been tough. We’ve never needed to laugh more. The news is depressing, social media is worse – the only people making sense of tall are comedians – ad no one does it better than Akmal. When it comes to covid fatigue – he is the cure!
Akmal is an Aria Awards winning comic who has spent decades at the top of the Aussie comedy industry. He brings his unique perspective of being born in Egypt and raised here from the age of 11 to the stage. He’s both an outsider and insider in Australia, and that just gives him a comedic world view thats hard to beat!
He’s also one of our funniest exports, having toured the world, including to the Edinburgh and Montreal International Comedy Festivals. He’s a star of film and TV, notably one of the most reluctant guests on ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’ (he really did want to get out of there), as well as numerous radio appearances. He’s an author and a film maker, he’s a bloody good story teller! And he’s the feature at the Ballina RSL this month for The Big Gig.
He is joined by Marty Bright, a regular on the pro circuit in NZ as support and the much loved opinion maker and comedian Mandy Nolan as MC!
Showtime at 8pm
