A Hindu and a Muslim Walk into a Comedy Club
A Muslim and a Hindu walk into a Comedy Club ... and extreme comedy ensues.
Extremist Intentions is a stand-up comedy show that highlights the little fundamentalist inside us all.
Bringing together Hindu Nesh Sooriyan and Muslim Sami Shah, this hilarious and one of a kind show offers insights into a comic world of race relations, sexism, geo-politics and human behavioural anomalies, proving that there are absolutely no sacred cows. A must see!
Sami Shah is not only a standup comedian but an illustrator, graphic designer, columnist, writer, husband, father and exhausted. He is currently living in Western Australia where he is battling a crippling addiction to meat pies.
Nesh Sooriyan is a Perth based comic who immigrated as a child from Sri Lanka's civil war. Hailed by Comedy Central, Sami Shah is Pakistan's one and only English language stand-up comedian, and has performed on the BBC, National Public Radio and was a feature speaker at TEDx in 2012.
Extremist Intentions, the show, runs from 20th to 24th February, 2013 at the Noodle Palace, 555 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley. Tickets cost $15 - $20 and are available from the FringeWorld website.
