Joe Avati (born 1974) is an Italian-Australian comedian who is popular among Italian and descendant of Italians from his native Australia, as well as in Canada, United Kingdom and the United States, where he has performed on several occasions. His parents are from Calabria in Italy and some of his show is performed in the Calabrese dialect, in English with or without a Calabrese accent. Avati's observational brand of comedy have earned him comparisons to Jerry Seinfeld, and in promotions he is referred to as 'the Italian Seinfeld'. His observations are drawn from the life around his Italian family, particularly his experiences growing up.
