He was a member of Pakistan's first improvisational comedy troupe and also had his own satirical television show in Karachi, and a newspaper column. A little dicey against Pakistan's political backdrop, and after witnessing bomb attacks at close range and being the target of death threats, Sami decided on a new life, across a couple of continents, to settle in Western Australia. He has spent time working as a news producer which he says helped to sharpen some of his comedy skills and black humour, but his comedic routines also contain deeper more serious messages.
