Have you ever wondered what Nazeem Hussain does during a 2-year break? Me neither, and I’m him.

Whether you’ve laughed at him on TV, followed him on TikTok, now’s your chance to strap in for a full dose of Nazeem, live.
Nazeem Hussain has fast become one of the biggest stars of Australian comedy and a much-loved television and radio personality.
Nazeem’s Netflix special Nazeem Hussain: Public Frenemy, filmed in Montreal at the Just For Laughs Festival, was released in 2019, streaming globally in 180 countries, introducing Nazeem to a legion of new fans and critical acclaim.
A regular on international stages, Nazeem has performed around the globe, including sell-out seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, London’s Soho Theatre, all across New Zealand, Paris, Belgium, China, Singapore, Malaysia, the US (including opening for Dave Chappelle in New York City), and a homecoming show of sorts in Sri Lanka to 2,500 people (yes, the Prime Minister and his wife sat on thrones in the front row).

– Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (UK)
