NAZEEM HUSSAIN’S MICF SHOW LEGALLY BROWN SHIFTS VENUE
Phenomenal ticket sales for comedian Nazeem Hussain’s debut solo show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival has seen him move to a larger venue for the final four days of the Festival.
Hussain will perform Legally Brown at Federation Square’s ACMI – BEYOND, on Thursday April 16, Friday April 17 and Sunday April 19. An extra MICF show on Saturday April 18 at 9.15pm at the Melbourne Town Hall’s Main Hall has only limited tickets left. For complete details on all shows visit: www.livenation.com.au.
Hussain was recently nominated for a 2015 Logie Award for Most Outstanding Comedy for his critically acclaimed, smash-hit SBS TV show Legally Brown. It is four years since Hussain last performed at the MICF as part of the award-winning duo, Fear of a Brown Planet, incidentally the 2008 MICF Best Newcomers. The master of exposing the inherent absurdity in prejudice and flipping stereotype on its head, Hussain’s live shows are no different – cerebral, confronting and funny.
His knack for character and deft comedic touch has seen him become a familiar voice on Triple J during 2014, as well as a regular on NOVA’s breakfast show with Meshel & Tommy. Hussain’s TV credits also include The Project (Network Ten), It’s A Date (ABC), and Balls of Steel Australia (The Comedy Channel). He was also SBS TV’s man on the ground in Rio de Janeiro during the 2014 World Cup soccer, providing nightly content to The Full Brazilian for the network.
Don’t miss your last opportunity to see the brownest household name in Australia right now, live and on the big stage, while you still can.
