Joe Avati Comedy Superstar Kicks Off World Tour
September 22, 2012
TORONTO, AUGUST 14, 2012 - - Australian-Italian comedy superstar Joe Avati is heading back to Canada this fall as part of his “Back To Basics World Tour.” His hotly awaited Canadian tour kicks off in Windsor, Ontario on September 22, 2012 and will end in Montreal, Quebec on November 9, with stops in 14 cities and four provinces.

One of the biggest names in international comedy, Avati will return to Canada after a five-year absence. Avati still holds the record for the fastest-selling comedy show ever in Canada, selling 3200 tickets in just nine minutes at the Toronto Centre for the Arts. The Back to Basics Tour will stop in 15 cities, including Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.

JOE AVATI is one of Australia’s top comedy exports, along with Kath and Kim, Chris Lilley and Barry Humphries. Often referred to as the “Italian Jerry Seinfeld” for his observational style of humour that gently skewers his Italian-Australian upbringing, Avati has developed a massive cult following on both sides of the Atlantic, including the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada. In addition to delivering his unique brand of stand-up comedy (performing in both English and Italian) to full houses since 1995, Avati has also produced five best-selling CD’s and five DVD’s.
