Hey Vancouver! He’s returning from the land down under and coming up at the Vancouver Playhouse on June 6, 2020.  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Joe Avati in person.  Over the last 21 years, Joe has entertained audiences around the world with his poignant and hilarious routines which capture the experience of growing up in Italian households in English speaking countries.  Joe’s material is always performed as an homage and celebration of the Italian experience.  Audiences are drawn to Joe’s show due to the sense of unity.  Anyone who grew up with Italian parents or near Italians will appreciate this unique and wonderful show.

Joe has been enthusiastically and lovingly embraced by Canadian audiences and he has become a household name with generations of fans coming to his show.

During his first tour of America, audiences laughed hard at his hilarious stories about living the life of an Italian in an English-speaking country.  The media has dubbed Joe the "Italian Seinfeld."   The Toronto Sun labelled him “pure comic genius” and The Globe and Mail has stated that Joe is ‘’one of the planet’s hottest comics.” 

The tour will feature brand new material as well as his classic material and capture Joe’s reflection of the first 20 years of his life growing up in an Italian family and the last 20 years of his career.   Coupled with his spot-on delivery and down-to-earth Aussie charm, it’s no wonder audiences love him.  To show his gratitude to his Vancouver fans, Joe is bringing the incomparable Freddy Proia with him to Host the show to further push the boundaries of laughter.  Don’t miss Joe with Toronto’s own Freddy Proia.

Come celebrate being Italian!
