Nazeem Hussain has fast become one of the biggest stars of Australian comedy, and a much loved television and radio personality.

Nazeem’s Netflix special Nazeem Hussain: Public Frenemy, filmed in Montreal at the Just For Laughs Festival, started streaming globally in 2019, introducing Nazeem to a legion of new fans, and critical acclaim. Funny Or Die, and Chortleboth listed Nazeem’s special amongst their favourites.

‘This was my first time seeing Hussain’s stand up, and I can tell you it absolutely will not be the last. Nazeem has incredible stage presence and really has command of the room.’ – Funny or Die (2019) Nazeem’s prime time TV comedy series ‘Orange Is The New Brown’ aired on Channel 7 in late 2018 to rave reviews. Nazeem created and starred in the sketch series, working alongside Claudia Karvan, Tim Minchin, Urzila Carlson and Kat Stewart. Several of the sketches have gone viral online, being viewed by over 10 million people.

Stand-up comedy is Nazeem’s, first love. He won the Best Newcomer Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and has twice been nominated for the Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer. 2019 saw Nazeem perform ‘Basic Idiot’, his fifth consecutive stand-up tour, to his largest ever audiences in every major Australian city, and then some.
