The Avenue | February 7 | 7:30pm

The Avenue is proud to have Dilruk Jayasinha return on Wednesday for his 2nd show.

Due to a sell out crowd last week at The Avenue with Dilruk's first show, at The popular Stand Up Comedy venue in Surfers Paradise, Dilruk is back. Book yourself in early as this next show will also book out very quickly once the word is out of his return to The Avenue.

Another week of laughs is upon us with Dilruk Jayasinha (Utopia, Cram, ABC, HYBPA?) hitting the stage once again with a new lot of jokes, gearing up for comedy festival season, with Gold Coast favourite Steve Allison hosting the show! Book your table early and reserve your seat for Wednesday Night Comedy at The Avenue - (07) 5592 1678.

Hailing from Sri Lanka, Dilruk relocated to Melbourne to attend university. Having completed a degree in accounting, he started working for one of the “Big Four.” However, after performing at an open mic night in 2010, that all changed… In a bittersweet turn of events, Dilruk was unceremoniously fired from his accounting job at the same time his comedy career was taking shape. Just as Dil had, it turns out his managers had noticed that his heart lay elsewhere. Dil is now a regular on the comedy scene around Melbourne and with a reputation for consistently nailing his shows, Dil has been invited to perform all over the country as well as internationally and in 2017 he completely sold out his run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with his brand new show The Art of the Dil. Dilruk has recorded an hour long special for the ABC and is a regular on Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention? he’s also appeared at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Just for Laughs festival. Dilruk has also just scored his own TV show as team captain on brand new panel show CRAM for Network Ten alongside fellow team captain Virginia Gay and host, Peter Helliar, not to mention becoming a regular, acting in ABC TV’s award winning Utopia.

Steve Allison is a legendary funnyman and a comedian who smashes every gig he does! A Palm Beach local with decades of comedy experience under his belt, Steve leaves audiences around the country doubled over in laughter. Steve's sometimes crass, always hilarious observations and outlandish tales leave every room in hysterics. He's a favourite all around Australia and we are thrilled to have him with us for the show!

We're bringing the laughs to The Avenue, every week from 7:30pm! With huge lineups and some of the best comedians from around the country and abroad, prepare your stomach muscles to see some of the best, all for free in Surfers Paradise - we can't wait to see you there!
