Comedian Tahir Bilgic is probably best known for his roles in Fat Pizza and Housos, but don't expect any of his characters to make an appearance when he performs in Dubbo next month.
Mr Bilgic will be performing to a sold out show at the Establishment Bar on October 1.
He loves playing in country towns to see the sights and was looking forward to performing, especially after earlier COVID-19 regulations forced the closure of many venues and social distancing made it impossible to perform.
"People are just so happy to be out, the audience have bee fantastic. They understand we're going through this together," he said.
"I think the audience have been tremendous and this will be a great night."

The stand-up comedian said Dubbo audiences can expect to have a unique and fun night.
"I like to include the audience. It's not just someone standing there talking. It's more than that," Mr Bilgic explained.
"People find it surprising but I'm also quite clean in my routines as well. People think because of Fat Pizza or Housos... that I'm going to turn up in a yellow tracksuit... but it's only a character."
Mr Bilgic has been in the entertainment industry for 20 years and started his career as a stand-up comedian which lead to roles in television.
"Stand-up comedy is my number one passion, it's something I will always do, I love it. I was never a trained actor I just fell into it with a comedy background," he explained.
"I love coming up with different shows and concepts. I have no rules, there could be props, music or magic. I've been doing some of the worse magic tricks you've ever seen, but it just works. I'll try anything, I love the freedom that stand-up gives you."
With COVID-19 rules and regulations now easing, Mr Bilgic is hopeful he can continue performing to his fans and is keen to come back to Dubbo for another performance in the near future.
"I will come back.. and maybe do a bigger venue," he said.
"Because I know there has been a fair bit of questions and people saying they missed out. But I'd love to return."
