Koocha-e-Saqafat Australia presented another remarkable show on Saturday 24 March 2018 at Rockdale town hall in Sydney. This time they invited an extraordinary talent Pride of Pakistan who is known to almost every Pakistani and those outside the country with some interest in Pakistani dramas, talk shows and theatre. It was a live show by the famous satirist, humorist and actor Mr Anwar Maqsood. This was the very first time when Anwar Maqsood performed live in Australia and the credit goes to Javed Nazar of Koocha-e-Saqafat who with his team made this dream a reality. Anwar Maqsood in his 100 minutes of captivating performance made his audience nearly cry with laughter but there were some instances where he made them really cry.

The performance was so mesmerising the house full capacity crowd in the Rockdale Town Hall Sydney did not move, even for a minute. Anwar Sahib in his presentation shed light on various aspects of human life in his own humorous style. Throughout the program the packed hall was filled with applause and in the end the audience gave a standing ovation to Anwar Maqsood but they didn’t really want the program to finish and wished it would go on forever. One of the audience sent a comment saying,

“97 minutes of pure nirvana, the sublime art of making you laugh and cry with rainbow of waves”
Another guest wrote this couplet in Urdu,
“Chand Doba to hay yaqeen phir niklay ga
Tum jo bichRay Anwar shamein bayrang hongi”
(Meaning: When the moon sets it is believed that it will come out again
When you leave Anwar evenings will be colourless)
