Comedian and writer Sami Shah has been profiled in the New York Times and ABC's The Australian Story, and appeared on BBC Radio 4, BBC Asian Network, TEDx, The Project, the Soho Theatre, and QI with Stephen Fry.

Sami won the award for Best Local Act at the 2013 Perth International Comedy Festival, and his autobiography, "I, MIGRANT" has been nominated for the NSW Premier's Literary Award, and the Russell Prize for Humour Writing.

Sami produces a weekly podcast, "SAMI SAYS", that he records while driving from his country town home, in rural WA, to Perth. He also writes columns for SCOOP Magazine, Fairfax Media, the Brisbane Courier Mail, and many other publications, and is a frequent contributor on ABC720.

Stylishly cynical, brutally newsy, bitingly funny, this is political stand-up done with gusto.
