Comedy Double Header Becky and Nazeem

Brunswick Picture House  |  Saturday  |  7pm

Becky Lucas and Nazeem Hussain make their way to the Brunswick Picture House next week to work on their 2020 Melbourne Comedy Festival Show. It’s been a huge few years for Nazeem. You’d have seen his face pop up on Channel 7 in his own sketch series Orange Is The New Brown, or on his Netflix half-hour special, or perhaps you saw him on The Masked Singer after which he became BFFs with Lindsay Lohan. Or maybe you took a selfie with Nazeem, literally as he was getting caught fare-evading on public transport. What a tight ass. The best place to see him is live – so we got him to finish a few sentences for us…

What I love about mornings is…

that I didn’t die in my sleep. And that my phone has full charge.

When I open the fridge and I find…

leftovers, I still order Uber Eats.

People always assume…

that I don’t take the tea sachets from hotels and airport lounges.

Some nights when I don’t feel funny I…

cry myself to sleep and write horrible comments under my own YouTube videos.

At school everyone thought I was…

such an amazing guy.

Something people don’t know about me is…

I have committed the entire movie Cool Runnings to memory.

The song I secretly sing loudly to in the car is…

Mysterious Girl. Petre Andre.

I have a secret crush on…

answering this question makes it not a secret crush anymore. So, yeah. Next question.

My worst habit is…

finishing people’s sentences incorrectly during most conversations.

When I meet new people, they always ask…

me to stop finishing their sentences incorrectly.

The health trend that bugs me most is…

all of them. They all guilt me.

I am happiest when…

I am performing at the Brunswick Picture House.

At the Bruns Picture house expect…

the best show you have ever seen in your life. And after Becky is finished, watch me fall apart…

Becky Lucas

Becky Lucas has spent years writing and performing stand-up, and in the last year alone has performed solo shows at the Sydney Opera House, made her US TV late-night stand-up debut on Conan (after opening for him at his first comedy show outside the US at Sydney’s State Theatre in early 2019), and performed at the prestigious Just for Laughs Montreal Festival. She did the same…

What I love about mornings is… 

the hope

When I open the fridge and I find… 

a body in there, I freak out!

People always assume…

that I want them to buy tickets to my show, and they’re right, I do!

Some nights when I don’t feel funny I…

am honest about that to the crowd. I can’t pretend.

At school everyone thought I was…

 this other girl called Ella who looked similar to me (brunette.)

Something people don’t know about me is…

I can make almost anything about me.

The song I secretly sing loudly to in the car is…

I don’t have my licence!

I have a secret crush on…

well it won’t be secret anymore, but I love Sam Neill

My worst habit is…

going out with men

When I meet new people, they always ask… 

“Why are you in my house?”

The health trend that bugs me most is… 

intermittent fasting. Just eat when you’re hungry and stop looking at me with those sad eyes.

When I am happiest is when…

I am with my friends, or on holidays.

At the Bruns Picture house expect…

to have fun! I’m so excited to perform in the most beautiful place in the world. I love Brunswick Heads!!

Catch Becky and Nazeem at the Brunswick Picture House on Saturday at 7pm. Tix from brunswickpicturehouse.com
