Joe Avati performs his one man show for the first time in Manchester, delivering his hilarious insights on how times have changed, for better or worse, since he grew up as a teenager in the 80’s.

Internationally renowned for his inimitable style Avati, who is Australian born with an Italian heritage, is a master of treading the very fine line saying what everyone seems to think but no one dares to say whilst not resorting to the use of profanities or vulgar shock tactic routines in doing so.

In his latest offering WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE… he tackles the ‘then versus now’ generational differences of today’s kids, the complexities of modern day parenting compared to the strict upbringing of yesteryear. His observations are not only deadly accurate but extremely relatable to all ages.

This is a show for all the family. Bring your parents to highlight how much they have changed since they were your age, bring your friends to laugh and reminisce about growing up as teenagers when you were that age and most importantly bring your kids so that they know what you went through “when I was your age…”
