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. ”

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”

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.”
