After selling a bucketload of tickets in 2018, Akmal returns by popular demand with his funniest show ever in the history of comedy. Paramedics will be on call to transport audience members to the hospital as their sides split from laughter. Now one of Australia’s most respected and accomplished comics, Akmal entered the world of comedy in 1990 under the alias Peter Saleh (apparently so people would think I was white). Since then he’s performed in movies, on TV and as a regular radio and talk show host and has written a book about his journey from Egypt and his life as an Arab on the Australian comedy circuit. He may even mention one of the biggest mistakes of his life, when last year he agreed to appear on the reality TV show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

Known for his incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and slightly offensive way, Akmal promises to deliver a show that is punctual and jam-packed with words... some of which he will even be using for the first time.

Drawing on his Arabic heritage, his experience immigrating to Australia at the age of 11 and his disillusionment with religion and the modern world, this show promises to be a stand-up show that is fresh, honest and ridiculously funny.

Don’t miss the show that was nominated for an ARIA this year! Catch it at Lizotte's on June 16th – for tickets visit
