AKMAL (Wed. 21 Jun, 2017 12:00 am - Sat. 24 Jun, 2017 10:00 pm)

Movies, Sketch, Stand-Up, TV appearances, radio DJ and talk show host, improvisation and a published author, Akmal is one of Australia’s most respected, successful and accomplished comics. 

Akmal has 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.  Twenty hours later, we got off a plane and 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

His Arab heritage steers his comedy to issues of religion, honesty, hysterical looks at modern day life. His uncanny comedic gift means he is one of those gifted comedians who has the audience eating out of the palm of his hand as soon as he walks on stage. He displays an incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and non-offensive way.

Akmal’s popularity has increased considerably over the last 10 years due to his regular appearances on national television shows such as Rove, The Glass House and “Thank God You’re Here”. As a result Akmal has toured the country with numerous sell out tours including his “Hoot” and “Gullible” tours. Akmal wrote and starred in “All Aussies are Boofta” – a sketch comedy show which enjoyed three successful seasons and critical acclaim at the legendary Harold Park Hotel, the Parramatta Riverside Theatre and The Harbourside Brasserie

He has appeared at Festivals all around the world including Adelaide Fringe Comedy Festival and Melbourne Comedy Festivals, Montreal ‘Just For Laughs’ Festival, Vancouver Comedy Festival, New Zealand Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
