Stand Up Comedy at The Avenue

  • The Avenue 3-15 Orchid Avenue Surfers Paradise, QLD, 4217 Australia (map)

WEDNESDAY NIGHT COMEDY
The Avenue | January 17 | 7:30pm

Sydney's Jacques Barrett is joining us this Wednesday with Mick Neven flying in to host the show - what a stunning night of Comedy at The Avenue! Book your table early and reserve your seat for Wednesday Night Comedy - (07) 5592 1678.

A regular on the Australian club and festival circuit, Jacques Barrett has become a bona-fide headliner, known for his ability to adapt to the crowd and throw consistently sharp, relentless comedy blows. He was a featured act on the 2016 Just for Laughs Gala at the Sydney Opera House, his 2017 show "Jacques Barrett is Particularly Good at This" toured all over Australia and almost definitely got at least one standing ovation! Jacques weaves character renditions into social commentary with strong performance skills and well written material, resulting in some poignant comedy. He leaves crowds thinking and laughing long after the curtains have closed.

One of Australia’s busiest comedians, Mick is just as comfortable on-stage at the biggest comedy clubs and corporate functions in the city, and the smallest venues and sporting clubs in the country. His material is observant, sharp and satirical, highlighting the foibles of modern life in a likeable and relatable fashion.  It’s intelligent, hilarious and sometimes political, delivered with high-energy and a never-ending stream of punchlines that continually take his jokes to the next level. A regular guest on ABC Grandstand and Melbourne’s 1116 SEN radio, Mick has also appeared on The Circle (See Mick on The Circle) and Hey Hey It’s Saturday (Channel 9).  He’s travelled to entertain Aussie troops serving overseas and appeared in his own solo shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and The Adelaide Fringe.

“Go see his show – it’s good” 4 Stars, The Herald Sun 2012.
 
‘Mick is one of the best writers on the Comedy Circuit.  Every time I work with him, he pulls out new jokes that I wish I’d written’ – Dave O’Neil – Comedian and Television Personality
