Stand Up Comedy at The Avenue

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


The Avenue | 6 February | 7:30pm

 Handpicked for Just For Laughs, returning from Japan to headline Wednesday Night Comedy at The Avenue, international headline act Jacques Barrett is hitting our stage alongside Queensland favourite, Footy Show feature Desh as your host! 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.

 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.

 Comedy in the back room at The Avenue is a Wednesday night staple in Surfers Paradise – every week from 7:30pm! With huge lineups and some of the best comedians from around the country and abroad, prepare your laughing gear to see some of the best from around the country and around the world. We can't wait to see you there!
