Hussain's incisive, no-holds-barred brand of comedy has seen him become of our most popular and accomplished comedians of both TV and radio. His podcast, Burn Your Passport, commissioned by the ABC, ranked in the Top 20 most listened to podcasts in its first few weeks.
The comedian's SBS TV show, Legally Brown, gave audiences plenty of entertainment with its hilarious take on what it’s like being in an ethnic and religious minority. The result was the show’s 2015 Logie Award nomination for Most Outstanding Comedy.
Hussain’s star has been rising in recent years, with him being the first Australian stand-up comedian to be cast in a Netflix series – the U.S. show, Bill Nye Saves the World. He also capped off last year by selling out his debut solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Add to that his 2015 nomination for a Helpmann Award for Best Comedy after his stints at the Sydney and Melbourne Comedy Festival and you know you’re going to get great value for money at Public Frenemy.
Suitable for ages 16+
