Celebrating your wedding with your family and friends is considered one of the most important and memorable days of your life. A lot of hard work and energy is spent making sure the whole day is fun for yourself and your partner as you celebrate the beginning of the next chapter in your lives together. Naturally, at the same time, many couples want their wedding to be unique and a night to remember for not only themselves but for their loved ones and special friends as well.

Joe Avati has been giving couples the opportunity to be able to make their special day even more special not only by entertaining the bride and groom and their guests with his hilarious routines but by gifting family and friends with a surprise performance (or appearance) by one of the biggest names in comedy today. Joe has the unique ability to make anyone of any age or background laugh with his everyday observations about his family and when he hits the stage his presence polarises the room and will have your guests talking about your wedding for years to come. What also makes Joe stand out is his ability to do this in a gentle manner always being conscious of your guests sensitivities working completely free of profanities or touching on any subject matter that may cause your friends or family to be offended.


Joe also makes the perfect MC having had a hugely successful career as a producer for over 20 years. He can not only provide wedding entertainment to your guests with his humour but his organisational and forward planning skills, ability to think off his feet and improvise, which he has learnt as a producer, is second to none and will ensure that your wedding entertainment runs like clockwork.

Having Joe as your MC means his services begin way ahead of your wedding day whereby he and his staff will work with you making themselves familiar with your needs and special requests and helping you devise a schedule of events, whilst being mindful of venue requirements and limitations, to deliver a day to remember.  His attention to detail and organisational skills continue all the way up until the bride and groom leave as he makes sure everyone is performing their duties so the night is seamless allowing you to sit back and take in what will be an event you will look back on and remember forever.

“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
