Nazeem Hussain

Basic Idiot

Presented by LIVE NATION

It’s been a massive year for Nazeem.

He became a Dad, his sketch show Orange Is The New Brown began airing on Channel 7, he recorded his first Netflix special, and was finally invited to speak at his high school assembly (Rex Hunt pulled out).

But more than fatherhood itself, Nazeem is most excited about joking about these things AND MORE on stage!


There wasn’t a flat joke in the set, nor a pause that didn’t lead to a laugh. No dead spots, no misfires, no flubs.
