NAZEEM HUSSAIN

Basic Idiot

It’s been a massive year for Nazeem Hussain. He became a dad, his sketch show, Orange Is The New Brown, began airing on Channel 7, he recorded his first Netflix special and was finally invited to speak at his high school assembly (Rex Hunt pulled out). But more than fatherhood itself, he’s most excited about joking about these things and more on stage in his witty, cutting and confronting style.

If you’ve never seen Nazeem Hussain, where have you been? His award-winning stand-up shows have been selling out shows across Australia, New Zealand, Edinburgh, London, China, Malaysia, Montreal and even Sri Lanka – this is a Darwin return you don’t want to miss.

Reviews
  • There wasnt a flat joke in the set, nor a pause that didnt lead to a laugh. No dead spots, no misfires, no flubs.

    Herald Sun
  • Nothing is safe from the forensic wit that this man possesses… comic genius.
