RAW: Fear of a Brown Planet Returns @ Tuxedo Cat (Studio)
There was a slight delay to the start of the show, a forgotten projector being the reason, but this just gave us even longer to enjoy the rooftop garden of the Tuxedo Cat Studio. On a side note, it’s sad that this little Adelaide gem is soon to be demolished.
Two Indian comedians , Nazeem Hussain and Aamer Rahman, take turns in performing an hour of side-splitting racist jokes. Cleverly used projections combining scenes from Star Trek contrasted with current affairs opened the show to set the scene that white people are a predominantly racist bunch.
The first half hour, was by far the funniest half. Nazeem showed a more light hearted side to racism, with a humorous taxi skit, and poked fun at himself and the one sidedness of Indian TV news when reporting on racism in Australia.
The second comedian, Aamer, wasn’t quite to the same high standards as Nazeem and the laughs seemed to die down a bit. However the audience was welcoming and energetic and happy to have a laugh at themselves.
