The BRISBANE FESTIVAL 2019 – Friday, 6 September to Saturday, 28 September 2019. JOHN SAFRAN: JEW DETECTIVE – SARCASM IS NOT A CRIME, at the Cremorne Theatre, QPAC from Wednesday, 11 September to Saturday, 14 September at 7.30 p.m. Writer, comedian and natural-born troublemaker, John Safran, has made a career of turning up where he isn’t wanted. Recently he’s been snooping around Aussie Nazis and jihadis. Now he wants to tell you the hilarious stories of how he gets in and – for the most part – avoids being thumped. Join the author of ‘Depends What You Mean by Extremist’, and the award-winning true crime book ‘Murder in Mississippi’, as he spills the beans on everybody and everything. (Photo by L.J.
