Back from Edinburgh, Avenue favourite Jonathan Atherton is headlining this week’s Wednesday Night Comedy in the Back Room, with gut-busting local Desh joining to host a sweet night of laughs at The Avenue! Where can you get two seasoned pros and a lineup of hilarious supports in Surfers? Nowhere but The Ave! We’ve got special guests and laughs-a-plenty, get in here from 7:30pm - book your table early and reserve your seat for Wednesday Night Comedy - (07) 5592 1678.

onathan Atherton has long been one of Australia’s best comics, and he’s always had an internationalist aspect to his material. Residing in Singapore for the past ten years, the dedicated traveller is fluent in at least 10 languages, and has worked and studied in most parts of the world. Jonathan has an enormous list of achievements including hosting the Lonely Planet series on television, acting in Warner Roadshow productions, he has performed for innumerable companies as a guest comedian and most recently, was iFlix’s first foray into stand up comedy with his hour special “Disoriental”. Jonathan has also performed voiceover work for many major companies, and has been a guest announcer on Triple J, and B105 in Brisbane. A veteran of comedy, his style is clever and adaptable, and he is an expert at reading an audience, then bringing them together. Despite his intellectual bent, Jonathan is able to converse with any crowd confidently, and is always a pleasure to watch.

Comedy legend Desh is hosting and we're thrilled to have him with us! He's entertained packed crowds at ANZ Stadium, appeared on the Footy Show and he is a MICF RAW Finalist. Satirical observations, explorations through multiculturalism and always hilarious comedic punches - Desh is incredible, we know you're going to love him.

Every week we're taking over the back room at The Avenue, Wednesday nights from 7:30pm! With huge lineups and some of the best comedians from around the country and abroad, prepare your laughter muscles to see some of the best from around the country and around the world - and all in Surfers Paradise. We can't wait to see you there!
