The Avenue Comedy Night couldn’t be more thrilled to have Dwayne Perkins joining us from LA this week for Wednesday Night Comedy in the Back Room! He’s been featured on Conan, his Netflix special “Take Note” is top charting and he’s an international headliner. Joining Dwayne, Terry Hansen (973fm) is one of the best MCs in the business, hosting a fantastic lineup at The Avenue! Reserve your seat for Wednesday Night Comedy - (07) 5592 1678.

 Brooklyn native Dwayne Perkins is a young vet in the comedy game. His one hour comedy special: “Dwayne Perkins: Take Note” debuted on Netflix to rave reviews and instantly became a fan favorite. Take Note was already in the top 50 Netflix comedy specials of all time only 2 months after being released. Dwayne has earned a spot in today’s elite class of standup comics with several appearances on Comedy Central and Conan. Dwayne is the author of the book, “Hot Chocolate For The Mind,”

 His recurring piece on The Jay Leno Show entitled “Great White Moments in Black History,” was a viewer favorite. Dwayne’s Comedy Central half hour special, a culmination of his talent and hard work, was very well received and voted one of the tope 25 Comedy Central specials of all time. It showcases his unique way of looking at life and his unparalleled ability to convey it in a hilarious manner. His comedic instincts and acting skills shine through in the independent film Target Audience 9.1 where he offers much of the comic relief as the funny likable geek.

Terry Hansen is one of the fastest in stand up comedy. With 30 years of comedy experience under his belt and 15 years on Brisbane radio on 973fm as Bianca, Terry and Bob, Terry has been an absolute gun in Australian comedy for longer than nearly anybody else.

Every week comedy is 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!
