Comedy superstar Akmal brings his brand new show The Life Of Akmal to Twin Towns. He’ll be featuring memoirs and extracts from his eponymous book. Topics will cover his experiences growing up in Egypt and migrating to Australia to being kicked out of the Coptic Orthodox Church and finding solace in his newfound religion of Comedy. There are outrageous stories of how Akmal entered the comedy world and insights into the characters he has met along the way that have influenced his career. Akmal continually displays an incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a non-offensive way which has resulted in a long line of appearances on much loved TV shows including Rove Live, The Footy Show (NSW), Spicks & Specks, Good News Week and memorable guest spots on the brilliant Thank God You’re Here. He also hosted the national NOVA drive show Get This with Cal Wilson and Ed Kavalee for two years before resigning at the peak of his popularity to head to back to the altar of the art form he loves. Fellow comedian Joel Ozborn, who has toured extensively with Akmal both nationally and internationally over the last two years, will join him in their improvised audience Q&A promising something different every night.

Saturday at Twin Towns, at 8pm for $37
