Let me start this by saying...I don't think I have ever laughed so much in my life after watching Joe Avati clips on Youtube and on his myspace page. Joe Avati, is an Italian-Australian comedian from down under and has been compared to Seinfeld due to his incredible success.
His comedy routine is so unbelievably funny, because if you're Italian you can relate to exactly what he is saying. For me especially, because I am Calabrese, I know exactly what he's describing when it comes to his family and the dialect. I found myself thinking, "wow, I thought I was the only person who thought that..or went through that.."
His celebrity has become so big in Australia and Canada, that he sells out his shows in minutes. Now, I haven't had the honor yet of attending any of his shows because he hasn't had any large venues yet here in the states..as far as I know. It would be fabulous to see this comedian because he really hits home for all the Italian immigrants. He's amazing. I encourage you to visit his site and youtube channel. I found myself laughing hysterically in my office while watching his show. We can only hope the tri-state or any part of the United States gets booked for one of his shows.
