Nazeem laughs at prejudice
FORMER A Current Affair host Jana Wendt visited comedian Nazeen Hussain's Melbourne family home unannounced to do an interview in 1993 when Nazeem was six years old.
It was during the height of the conflict in Iraq with dictator Saddam Hussein at the helm.
Her target was Nazeem's father, Shereen, and the angle was that his name was listed as S. Hussain in the phone book.
Six months later, Hussain's father left for Sri Lanka and never returned.
Award-winning comedian Nazeem brings his solo show Legally Brown to the NORPA stage for one night only.
A master of exposing the inherent absurdity in prejudice, Nazeem, 29, is an Australian comedian, actor, and radio presenter.
He received a Logie nomination for his SBS TV show of the same name.
At Lismore City Hall this Saturday from 7.30pm. $35.
