Stand Up Comedy at The Avenue

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


The Avenue | 24 April | 7:30pm

 All the way from New York City, we’re ecstatic to have Patrick Melton (Nobody Likes Onions, Sirius/XM) joining us for Wednesday Night Comedy at The Avenue! South African Dusty Rich is joining us to host the show – we can’t wait for a huge night of laughs in the Back Room. Book a table before we fill up - (07) 5592 1678.

Patrick Melton has always used his unique observations coupled with a quick, biting wit to make those around him laugh. With his skewed world view, he chooses not to see the glass as half empty, but rather half full – of poison. With a wry smile and an unapologetic delivery, he weaves real life stories with raw crowd interaction to give audiences a performance that is uniquely hilarious. Originally from Florida, Patrick has been performing standup comedy for over ten years at venues around the world. After five years of calling Los Angeles a home base, Patrick has now relocated to New York City to focus more on standup and writing. Patrick has performed and written for some of the best names in comedy, and in 2013 was named a national Semi-Finalist in Comedy Central’s Up Next competition. He has appeared on Sirius XM satellite radio, Comedy Central Radio, Spike TV, VH1, and The Bob & Tom Show. He’d probably love to do your podcast. Patrick is the creator and host of the top-rated comedy internet radio show Nobody Likes Onions, available at One of the longest-running comedy podcasts, Patrick and comedian guests from around the world  have been making listeners laugh since 2005. Each week he entertains tens of thousands of listeners worldwide through the award-winning program.

 South African comedian Dusty Rich has decided to make Australia his new home, and thank God for that – we don’t know what we’d do without him. He’s had his own Comedy Central special in South Africa, he’s toured all over the world and, in the few years he has been here, become a favourite of the Australian comedy circuit to boot. Wild, improvisational and unpredictable, Dusty leaves every audience doubled over with laughter.

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.
