About Akmal Saleh

 

Movies, Sketch, Stand-Up, TV appearances, radio DJ and talk show host, improvisation and a published author, Akmal is one of Australia's most respected, successful and accomplished comics. He displays an incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and non-offensive way.

Akmal’s popularity has increased considerably over the last 10 years due to his regular appearances on national television shows such as Rove, The Glasshouse and Thank God You’re Here. As a result, Akmal has toured the country with numerous sell out tours including his ‘Hoot’ and ‘Gullible’ tours. Akmal wrote and starred in ‘All Aussies are Boofta’ – a sketch comedy show which enjoyed three successful seasons and critical acclaim at the legendary Harold Park Hotel, The Parramatta Riverside Theatre and The Harbourside Brasserie.

He has appeared at Festivals all around the world including Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Vancouver Comedy Festival, Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, New Zealand Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Akmal wrote and starred in the feature film ‘You Can’t Stop the Murders’ to critical acclaim and also the cult hit tv show ‘The 40 Foot Show’. As a result of this he then hosted the popular ‘The Wrong Way Home’ drive radio show on the Nova network. The show achieved the stations highest ever drive ratings. His passion for stand-up comedy got too much and he returned to the stage with his National sell out tour ‘Live and Uncensored’. He released this show as his first ever live DVD and it has subsequently achieved platinum status in Australia.

He has been nominated for numerous awards including Two Australian Comedy Awards, two Helpmann Awards (for excellence in live performance) and an ARIA award (Australian Recording Industry Award) for his DVD ‘Live and Uncensored’.
