Comedian Akmal comes to Lismore

AKMAL returns to Lismore armed with some classic classics and some new classics for one very funny hour.

What a huge year Akmal had in 2008.

His brand new DVD was nominated for an ARIA Award for Best Comedy Release and his nationally syndicated drive show on the NOVA network continued to grow from strength to strength.

Akmal has certainly cemented a place in the hearts of all comedy-loving Aussies. And there doesn’t seem to be any slowing down for this funny guy.

Akmal continually displays an incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a non-offensive way, as he touches on issues such as religion, terrorism and hysterical looks at modern day life in Australia.

This has resulted in appearances on TV shows such as Rove Live, The Footy Show, (NSW), Spicks & Specks and memorable guest spots on Thank God You're here and Good News Week.

Akmal’s first DVD Live & Uncensored  recorded live at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney earlier this year, continues to achieve rave reviews and is one of Australia’s top comedy releases.

"Saleh’s acutely observed look at life in the low-income, new Australian bracket was a hilarious delight, charmed the socks off the crowd." – Daily Telegraph

"...with his uncanny knack for fast-paced improvisation...his is a show definitely worth seeing." – The Age On-line 2007

Long-time friend and fellow comic Joel Ozborn will again join Akmal for his Lismore show. Joel has just concluded a five-month national tour with US comedian Arj Barker. Get in quick. This is world-class comedy.

Akmal will perform his Live & Uncensored show at the Star Court Theatre, Lismore this Saturday from 8pm. Bookings www.norpa.org.au or 1 300 066 772.

WARNING: Show is unsuitable for children under 13.
