AKMAL - As you have never seen him before!

Saturday 2nd September at 8:00pm

Akmal's at it again!


After 27 sell-out performances at the 2006 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, demand for Akmal's irreverent brand of stand-up shows no sign of waning.


Akmal is one of Australia's most respected, successful and in demand comics. He displays an incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and non-offensive way, as he touches on issues such as religion, terrorism and hysterical looks at modern day life in Australia.


Akmal will deliver his new, topical stand up comedy show tackling topics such as the Cronulla race riots, the new Pope Benedict XVI, reality shows and of course some of his classic routines, which have made him an in-demand and regular guest on such TV shows as Rove LIVE, The Glass House and Thank God You're Here. Incorporating hilarious observational sketches with dynamic multimedia slides and video, Akmal is not to be missed.


"No one wanted the show to stop……"  Lenny Ann Low - Sydney Morning Herald


"…the capacity audience could have been excused for crying with laughter at his laid-back

unpredictability and his sheer, brilliant stupidity." The Advertiser


Akmal has had a fascinating past, originally immigrating to Australia from Egypt with his family nearly 30 years ago.  He sums it up in his own inimitable style - "My parents didn't tell us where we were going.  We thought it was two hours away, like Alexandria.  Twenty hours later, we got off a plane.  We were on another planet". This, and many other bizarre incidents dot Akmal's life - suggesting a career in stand-up comedy was pre-ordained, either that or he should have been committed early on…


Akmal will be joined by fellow comedian Joel Ozborn who has toured extensively with him, both nationally and internationally over the last two years. Together they have built a strong dynamic chemistry onstage, which is evident in their improvised audience Q&A promising something different every night.


AKMAL is on at the Caloundra Cultural Centre on Saturday 2nd September at 8:00pm.  Ticket Prices are $29.90 Adult, $26.90 Concession.  Bookings (07) 5491 4240, Box Office Hours: Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:30pm, Saturday 9:00am-11:30am, Box Office open 1 hour prior to performance.
