Khaled Khalafalla I Thought I'd Be Famous By Now

Khaled Khalafalla should be famous by now. Come watch Australia's fastest rising star in peak funny form.

Khaled has performed his powerhouse stand-up comedy around the world – to royalty in the Middle East, Australian troops in Afghanistan and to the invitation-only New York Comedy Festival. He opened Jim Jefferies' biggest show in front of ten thousand people at Perth Arena. Last year Khaled performed his biggest show to a sell-out 1,000 seat Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne.

If you're quick, you can catch him in this intimate setting at Melbourne's trades hall this Festival. You won't want to miss this.
