Nazeem Hussain Saved A Troll's Life

Nazeem Hussain was preparing for a month-long run at the Melbourne International Comedy festival, followed by a national tour, when COVID-19 upended his plans. Knowing all Australian comedians were in a similar situation, Hussain launched a podcast: The Survivor’s Guide to Coronavirus.

Hussain was buoyed by the "family spirit amongst comedians" who supported each other, emotionally and financially, while live venues shuttered across Australia.
