Críticas:

"Honest and inspiring, Shah's book is a reminder of how laughter is not only necessary, but also life-sustaining. Humor at its most vigorous and unsparing." -"Kirkus Reviews "

Reseña del editor:

"Despite being nearly killed by a kangaroo and almost lynched and run out of town after his comedy was taken far too seriously, Sami Shah is very happy to be living in Australia. He had fronted his own satirical show on TV in Karachi, worked as a journalist and been a highly regarded newspaper columnist - all dangerous occupations to be involved in - when the combination of seeing the aftermath of a devastating bomb attack and being the target of death threats convinced him to leave Pakistan. Under the terms of their Australian migration visa, Sami and his wife and young daughter were obliged to settle in a rural area, and so they moved to Northam in Western Australia. Now Sami is battling a crippling addiction to meat pies, but is at least no longer constantly mistaken for an escaped asylum seeker from the nearby detention centre. He has also been the star of Australian Story, the subject of an article in The New York Times, and has performed countless comedy shows to ever-growing and appreciative audiences."
