Coming together to share the stage in Sydney this February for one show only, a star-studded line-up of A-list comedians will feature in an exclusive stand-up event, The Usual Dagos. Comedians including Joe Avati, George Kapiniaris and TV star Tahir will welcome new members of the Dagos family to the stage; James Liotta, Piero Viavattene, and a few ‘wogs that weren’t’ – Ashley Fils-Aime and Dane Simpson who will be bringing his Aboriginal background to the cultural comedy celebration.
Australian comedy veteran George Kapiniaris is ready to bring the boys together on stage for another Dagos special.
“It’s going to be jam packed with Dagos, one yak and one Aboriginal,” Kapiniaris said. “We’ve known each other for years, we’re great mates.”
Each comedian will bring their own set to the stage, making The Usual Dagos a night of comedy packed with full sets from each comedian.
“We’re all doing a separate set. I’ll be bringing lots of old and new stuff. All of it will be a little bit controversial… I have a really good go of it.”
Kapiniaris warns that audiences better be prepared for The Usual Dagos line-up.
“This line-up… you’re gonna get a laugh. You’ll get whiplash from laughing so hard. You should bring a cushion. The next day you’ll be so sore from laughing you’ll feel like you’ve gone for a run.”
This show will be the ‘best of the best’ according to Kapiniaris, “There are so many jokes coming. We’ve taken all the best jokes and put them together. That’s our number one job, to be funny. We’ll all have such a good time nobody will want to leave.”
