Scene News: Joe Avati, George Kapiniaris, Rob and Tahir are Straight Outta Compo

The boys are back! Award winning producer, Joe Avati, has put together another show, Straight Outta Compo, starring the guys from Here Come The Habibs and Fat Pizza (Rob and Tahir), plus George Kapiniaris and Joe Avati himself.

Joe Avati has some enviable achievements to his name – worldwide success and local ticket sale records that supersede most.   He’s a prolific comedy writer with 5 x DVD releases under his belt and is the only Australian artist to have had two albums charting simultaneously in the Top 5 internationally (‘Livin La Dolce Vita’ and Live and Unpluggato’).  To this day, he holds the record for the fasting selling comedy show ever in Canada and here in his home country, Joe constantly sells out theatres.  He also happens to be one of our top comedy exports.

George Kapiniaris needs no introduction – he is one of this country’s best loved comedy, music and TV stars, having had an incredible impact on Australian popular culture over the last 32 years.   George Kapiniaris’ claim to fame was his starring role in the hugely popular stage show ‘Wogs Out Of Work’ whereby the Australian public embraced him and continued to see George use his Greek heritage as inspiration for future roles and performances.  Since then, George has gone on to win several awards along with having countless credits to his name.

It has been a whirlwind couple of years for Rob Shehadie with his acting, stand-up comedy, MC roles as well as stage and screen writing. A co-creator of Channel Nine’s hit comedy-drama, Here Come The Habibs, as well as actor, associate producer, story consultant and original concept for the show, he has been busy to say the least.

Tahir is one of Australia’s busiest comedians. He has been a feature in all comedy venues around the country and had numerous television appearances as credits. Tahir was named Comedian of the Year and has been Logie nominated. He has worked with the who’s who of the industry and has been booked for countless private and corporate functions. He is a regular at major Comedy Festivals, on panel shows, television debates and even Celebrity Theatresports!  Tahir is also one of the co-creators of Here Come The Habibs and was a star of Fat Pizza.

These 4 outstanding comedians promise to deliver a packed show full of stand up, sketches, songs, video items and the usual surprises. Don’t miss out on this hilarious, brand new show featuring some of Australia’s most successful comedians.
