Australia’s favourite comedian Akmal Saleh returns to Adelaide for his most Transparent performance yet. Akmal has graced the Australian comedy scene for years and appears to only get better and better with time. His hilarious appearances on television programs and participation in comedy festivals around the world has made him a household name, and for good reason.
Akmal possesses the ability to discuss controversial and current topics in the most hysterically funny way possible. This time around you can hear his thoughts on Donald Trump, Aussie bogans, his experience on reality television and everything in between. Chances are you’ve already seen this guy doing live stand up- but we can guarantee he always brings something new to the table. Mildly offensive but always respectful in his approach, he had the audience in stitches. Drawing on experiences from his personal life and never being afraid to make fun of himself, he’s an absolute natural on stage. This guy was born to make people laugh.
Throughout the show Akmal encourages his audience to smile more, don't sweat the small stuff and be a little bit cheeky sometimes. Pretty good advice, we think! Don’t miss out on seeing one of our comedy greats do what he does best. This show is a must see for the Fringe this year.
You can still catch Akmal performing in Adelaide next weekend; tickets are available for purchase here!
