Joe Avati

Looking for some good, old-fashioned belly laughs? You don’t get much better than 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 fastest selling comedy show ever in Canada, selling 6400 tickets in 2 hours.

Fans of Joe Avati may know him from one of his wildly successful productions or comedy albums, including IL DAGO, IL DAGO II, Comicus Erectus, The Good, The Bad and The Ethnic, Livin La Dolce Vita and Live and Unpluggato. To date, Joe has produced 5 live albums and 5 live DVDs – each one better received than the last.

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.

Anthony Locascio

Anthony Locascio is one of the Sydney Comedy Scene’s fastest rising stars. He is a two time NSW Raw Comedy State Finalist, and has performed with some of the best comedians Australia has to offer; including Steve Hughes, Joe Avati, Al Del Bene, George Kapiniaris, Luke Heggie and many more.

Anthony produced and performed a solo hour to a sold out audience of 400 in December 2017 entitled “The Worst of Both Worlds”, which he also performed in a sold out run at the Sydney Fringe Festival in 2018. He performed an hour in the Christmas Feast Showcase in 2018, which he also produced. Highlights from both of these shows are available on Anthony’s YouTube channel.

Anthony told the story of his departure from the corporate accounting world in ‘Unaccounted’, at the Sydney Comedy Festival in 2019 in a sold out debut run, and recently sold out the Sydney Comedy Store with his new show, ‘Mr Perfect’.

Anthony performs regularly at some of the best comedy rooms Sydney has to offer, including the Comedy Lounge, Happy Endings Comedy Club, and has had five runs as part of the weekly showcases at the Sydney Comedy Store.
