Comedy genius jet sets to BREC

South Western Times

Comedy genius Akmal Saleh will return to Bunbury with his “funniest show ever in the history of comedy” Transparent to the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on November 3.

BREC and A-List Entertainment have partnered to bring the funny man to the South West, who is known for his ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and slightly offensive way.

Saleh promised to this year deliver a show which is punctual and jam-packed with words – some of which he will be using for the first time.

The respected and accomplished comic draws on his Arabic heritage, his experiences immigrating to Australia at the age of 11 and his disillusionment with religion and the modern world to deliver a stand-up show that is fresh, honest and funny.

Saleh may even use the show to mention one of the “biggest mistakes of his life” when last year he agreed to appear on the reality TV show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

Entering the world of comedy in 1990 under the alias Peter Saleh, he has since performed in movies, on TV and as a regular radio and talk show host.

Saleh also penned a book about his journey from Egypt and his life as an Arab on the Australian comedy circuit.

As a stand-up comedian he has performed at festivals all around the world, including Edinburgh, and collected numerous awards, including an ARIA for his DVD Live and Uncensored.

Tickets are on sale online at bunburyentertainment.com or by visiting the BREC Box Office.
