An hour of real-life stories based on my life. Being a dad, being a husband, being the son of refugee parents, being famous but only in neighbourhoods where brown people live, I talk about it all. I also make fun of white people a lot.
Why should people come to your show?
Because I consider myself someone who takes my craft very seriously and I'm good at what I do. Also you're contributing to my mortgage, so yeah, that would be great.
You've talked about selling vacuum cleaners in your dad's shop as a kid. Could you describe your up-selling technique? I never up-sold anyone. I was an honest salesperson who only gave the customer exactly what they needed based on their circumstance. Like a $2500 vacuum cleaner ... completely ... reasonable.
What was the reaction of your parents to you pursuing comedy?
My mother cried.
Can you think of a time you used comedy to get yourself out of a bad situation?
I've got out of speeding tickets multiple times because the cop has recognised me from 7 Days. Yeah, I'm famous, so what, big deal ... stop going on about it.
Assadi will perform ``Brown Famous'' at 8pm tonight and tomorrow at the New Athenaeum Theatre.
