Aamer Rahman and Nazeem Hussain deliver comedy with a consience through Fear of a Brown Planet Attacks Again. These two use their lived experience to challenge the views of modern Australian society, to question this nations ability to end racism, and to give insight into what it is like to be a minority, and a muslim, in this country. Humour is a great tool to get people to listen without getting defensive. Rahman and Hussain both use their comedic skills wisely to speak in an ‘other’ language and discuss opposing views on cultural realities, both their own, and that of the wider community.
Both comedians were finalists in the 2007 Victorian Triple J Raw Comedy, Rahman winning the event, and both have written and performed for Australian television. This show gave the opportunity to relax a little on race related topics such as the Hajib. We were allowed to laugh at our own ability to be so opinionated, and could reflect on things that the average Australian doesn’t really have the understanding to comment on.
