Sami Shah Punching Down

Sami Shah Punching Down

Winner Best Comedy 2013 Perth International 
Winner Best Comedy WA 2016 Fringe World 

Politics, race, political correctness, dick pics ­– Sami Shah is an award-winning comedian, trying to make sense of it all. Which would be a lot easier if the world didn’t keep punching him in the face.

A Pakistani who spent four years in rural WA, and a best-selling writer and journalist, Sami brings a perspective that might not be what you’ve heard before, but you definitely need to hear now.

Featured on QI, ABC 720, The New York Times, The Project.
