Event Summary

  • Akmal

    Wednesday 21 June
     - Saturday 24 June

    Doors Open: 6:30PM. Dinner: 6:30PM. SHOW STARTS: 8PM

    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.

    Wednesday 19 July
     - Saturday 22 July

    Doors Open: 6 :30 PM. Dinner: 6 :30 PM. SHOW STARTS: 8 PM

    Natural and unmistakably Australian, Hughsey’s laconic style thinly disguises one of this country's fastest comedic minds. Turning everyday foibles into rich and hilarious routines has made Hughesy the biggest name in Australian comedy. For 12 years Hughesy made up one half of Melbourne's Nova breakfast team and for 5 years he co-hosted Network Ten’s The Project, not to mention 11 years on Ten’s AFL show Before the Game.

    While he never left stand-up behind, in late 2013 Dave shocked Australia by announcing that he would be giving up his radio and television jobs to go back to his roots touring a brand new stand up show for an entire year. 

    In 2015 Dave returned to the airwaves with long time co-host Kate Langbroek joining the team at KIIS and Mix FM in a national drive radio program and he joined the team at Channel 9's The Footy Show.

     

    In 2016, Hughesy toured the country with a brand new stand up show Sweet; he continued his national drive radio show on KIIS and Mix which he will return to in 2017; Dave also regularly joined the panel on The Footy Show; and because that is obviously not enough, he hosted Australia’s Got Talent – the most successful entertainment format in the world today, for Channel 9.
