Daniel Townes & Mujahid Ahmed
International Australian comedian Daniel Townes first hit the Sydney comedy scene with his laid-back and conversational stand-up style in 2003, and quickly made his mark as one of the country’s best live acts.
Since then, he’s performed at the prestigious invite-only Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, and won over audiences worldwide with his laconic and disarming delivery: headlining and hosting at comedy clubs throughout Australia, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany, Spain, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, The Netherlands, and the UAE.
Daniel is a regular at comedy, fringe, and music festivals, and has performed a new show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival every year since 2005. He’s also had numerous successful seasons at Adelaide Fringe, Sydney Comedy Festival, Perth International Comedy Festival, and Edinburgh Fringe. He’s toured with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow since 2007, and hosted the Hong Kong and Singapore tours in 2013.
“A must see.”
“More gags per minute than any other comedian”
Mujahid ‘Muj’ Ahmed
Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Mujahid Ahmed, Sudan’s funniest comedian.
Mujahid has been a resident of Australia for nearly 10 years and the first thing he did when he got here was shorten his name to Muj. (How Australian.) Muj is pretty rare as there’s not that many comedians from Sudan (he is the only one in fact). It might have something to do with all the famine and civil war that isn’t conducive to producing many humorous thoughts.
“I wish you would stop stabbing me so I can die of natural causes…starvation.”
Muj has been grazing in the comedy pastures of Adelaide for the past few years before recently moving to Sydney, and we are glad to have him. There have been some pretty impressive gigs on his CV like ‘Enough Rope’ with Andrew Denton and he also toured as Fiona O’loughlin’s support act.
Bad luck Sudan, he belongs to us now. (Australia 1 – Sudan 0)
