Joe Avati

Looking for some good, old-fashioned belly laughs? You don’t get much better than corporate and family comedian extraordinaire, Joe Avati. A second generation Italian born and bred in Australia, Joe has become a firm fixture on the Australian comedy circuit alongside comic greats such as Carl Barron, Judy Lucy and Shane Bourne as the world’s only best-selling bilingual comedian. Joe has been called one of the planet’s hottest comics by the Globe and Mail and has received rave reviews from the Daily Telegraph and The Age, amongst others.

He frequently performs sold-out shows to massive crowds in Australia, the U.K, USA and Canada, where he still holds the record for the fastest-selling comedy show ever in Canada, selling 6400 tickets in 2 hours. With a show that touches on universal themes such as generational differences, a love of food and the immigrant experience, Joe’s comedy is able to reach across languages, nationalities and ethnicities for a genuine laugh – and the fact that he avoids lazy profanities and offensive gags makes it comedy that is truly suitable for the entire family.
