Fear of a Brown Planet set for 2012 UK dates and London residency

Posted: 27th July 2012
The Australian comedy duo have announced their debut UK tour for September 2012, tickets on sale now

Shock and awe, the relentless march of fundamentalism. The world turning brown. Aussie comedians Nazeem Hussain and Aamer Rahman tackle it all head on with their award-winning show Fear of a Brown Planet.

Lauded across Australia for their "bitingly honest" take on sensitive issues such as race relations, Fear of a Brown Planet first emerged around four years ago. It is more than simply a clever play on the title of a Public Enemy album - it is, by all accounts, riotously funny, devilish clever and something of an eye-opener. Down Under, it has scooped Melbourne Comedy Festival awards and prompted critics to label the work as "fantastic" and as "intelligent, heartfelt and complex stand-up" that "this flag-wearing, offshore detention centre-tolerating, mining town of a nation needs more of it." It sounds brilliant.

The tour kicks off at the Frog and Bucket in Manchester on 16th September and takes in Leicester, London and more, before the final date at Cardiff's Reardon Smith Theatre on 26th September 2012. There is a four-date London run in the middle of the tour, when Nazeem and Aamer will be at the Soho Theatre from 19th until 22nd September.

We have tickets for all dates available now, priced just £10 for the opening Soho night and £12.50 for all other dates (London and beyond).
