Nazeem Hussain Ed2016

You can make jokes about any subject as long as they’re funny, so Nazeem Hussain more than gets away with jokes about Isis. Hussain explores the disconnect he feels about his Australian-ness and his Indian-ness, both mentally and physically. Joking about his cultural split identities, he keeps the laughs rolling through stories about the interrogations he’s had and his experiences of internet anti-trolling, delivering a commentary on some of the world’s shocking and bizarre views on race and identity. Occasionally his delivery becomes too slick, which loses some of the charm of live comedy, but Hussain is undeniably funny and has something to say.

Assembly George Square Studios, until 28 Aug.
