Modern Wedding Feature March 2015

“I had the pleasure of working with Joe, when my clients (Italian and Greek) decided to surprise their family and friends with a performance by the Internationally renowned comedian Joe Avati at their Wedding. Everyone was in shock, not even their children knew he was coming.

Joe kindly took time out from his world tour and made the trip to Sydney to perform as wedding entertainment and MC for the night at the O Bar & Dining for my clients wedding. Without a doubt he was a hit.

Joe was super adaptable and accommodating to all the mishaps, time changes and unexpected surprises that happen at a wedding, without any complaints. He is humble and has an easy going nature about him, whilst remaining extremely professional. The guests appreciated his natural ability to make them laugh as he engaged with all ages and cultures of the audience with his light hearted humour and experiences from growing up in an Italian household.

Joe also made an effort to spend time with those who specially requested his attention and mingled with all guests throughout the night, having pictures taken & signing autographs.

I have no hesitation in recommending Joe Avati for any event and I look forward to working with him in the future.”

– Bernadette Georgiou, Director at Sparklebox.

“Joe Avati is truly amazing. Joe kindly made the trip up from Melbourne to perform as entertainment for our wedding in April and let me tell you he did not disappoint!

Not only was my family in tears from all the laughter, my husband’s Croatian family and also our other multicultural guests were in stitches, as his show is so diverse and relatable to every ethnicity!

Our guests were so pleasantly surprised when they came to know Joe Avati was in the house and many were star struck as he is such an Italian/Australian comedic idol. Thank you Joe for such a hysterical and entertaining performance that made our wedding day even more special and will be remembered by all for a lifetime!”

– Aurelia & David Jakic

Victorian Premier Gala Dinner 2014

“The Premier’s Gala Dinner which has been held annually since 2003, has evolved into a key event for Cultural Diversity Week as it marks the beginning of a week-long celebration of multiculturalism.

Cultural Diversity Week aims to promote Victoria’s cultural and religious diversity as being one of the State’s greatest assets. It provides an opportunity for all Victorians to celebrate and learn about the State’s cultural, linguistic and religious diversity through a wide range of activities and events.

In 2014, the Gala dinner was attended by over 1400 guests and by all accounts Victoria’s cultural diversity shone through.

Your part in making the evening a huge success cannot be overstated. As MC you were able to bring your unique style and humour to the task at hand and, your professionalism and sensitivity to the many and varied guests from culturally diverse communities contributed to making the evening one that was enjoyed by one and all.

On behalf of the Victorian Multicultural Commission l would like to thank you for efforts in helping to make this year’s Premier’s Gala Dinner a huge success.

Yours sincerely,

Rudy Monteleone”

Macquarie Bank – Macquarie Leasing Division 2015

“We recently had the pleasure of having Joe Avati MC both of Macquarie’s Melbourne and Sydney’s Sales events. As the nights were information heavy and quite serious we thought having a comedian break up proceedings would be ideal. Joe was fantastic and fit the brief perfectly. He brought a sense of light to the evening, while his comical wit and relevant gags kept the audience laughing. ”

Katherine Lee, Brand and Marketing Manager, Macquarie Leasing.

Carlton Street Festival 2014

“We recently had the pleasure of having Joe Avati perform at the Carlton Italian Festa in Melbourne. From the moment he hit the stage, Joe was funny  and engaging, with his observations on Italian/Australian life and culture having the crowd in fits of laughter. In fact, he had them eating out of the palm of his hand. Both before and after his performance, Joe was ever the consummate professional – mingling with fans, having pictures taken, signing autographs and (rare in this day and age) taking the time to meet those who had come from far and wide to see his performance. The only regret from the day was that we were not able to extend the length of his set.

We look forward to working with Joe again at the earliest possible opportunity.”

– Eddie Rinaldo, Director Rinaldo Entertainment and Productions

Tass Savidis,

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with the very talented and very funny Joe Avati recently.

His manner on and off the stage is testament of a great entertainer that is truly humbled by his natural ability to make people laugh! He engages with all ages of the audience effortlessly making every persons experience very memorable.

Any citizen of any age that’s lived in a multicultural country would appreciate his inoffensive and light hearted humour. His material is original and his life experiences growing up as a first generation Italian hilarious!”

Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL Anzac Memorial Dinner

“We recently had Joe Avati perform at our Members Anzac Cabaret Dinner Dance which went over two nights.

We decided on Joe because we required a comedian who was extremely professional, current, clean and more importantly who could adapt to our audience.

Joe managed to deliver his unique brand of comedy and cater to our specific audience which were our club and sub branch members mainly consisting of a diverse range of groups including our return service personnel from the Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL sub branch.

We had nothing but rave reviews about his performance over the two nights that he was here. He not only delivered his monologue but also was master of ceremonies on both our nights.

I have no hesitation in recommending Joe Avati for any corporate situation that requires a professional and adaptable comedian.”

– Debbie Kelso, Entertainment Co-ordinator, Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL
