ENTERTAINMENT

AKMAL / Wonderland Spiegeltent 7-8.30pm. One of Australia’s most respected successful and in-demand comics, with an incredible ability to deal with hot topics in a hilarious and non-offensive way.

He will be doing a best of show, bringing comedic gold selected from the previous 25 years. Some people have suggested that he’s doing this because he is lazy and could not be bothered writing a new show. These people are ignorant and most likely lesser comedians who are jealous of his talent and good looks. Happy ending guaranteed (for an extra twenty bucks). *No kids, no real estate agents, no refunds.
