2nd Avaton International Comedy Festival








THE 2nd AVATON INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL kicks off on the 14th to 17th June in Thessaloniki and 16th to 20th June in Athens.

Among them, two of the most prominent Matt Kirshen and Bob Maclaren:


Matt Kirshen- Live in Greece
Friday 17 June/ 21:30 / 80′
Presale 10 euros / Door 12 euros


British comedian Matt Kirshen has toured the world. He’s been seen on Jimmy Fallon, and the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, was paired with Robin Williams on the Sky Atlantic show Set List, was the host of E4’s Rude Tube, and has had his own half-hour comedy special on UK Comedy Central.  His performance in the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal resulted in no fewer than 4 of his  gags appearing in the Montreal Gazette’s round up of their best jokes of the fest, and his CD “I Guess We’ll Never Know” was named one of Splitsider Magazine’s top 10 comedy albums of the year. This will be his Greek debut.

“Five Stars” – Edinburgh Evening News

“A rollercoaster of comedy genius… Hugely impressive.” The Scotsman.

“His performance is the perfect mix of innocence and post-adolescent cynicism driven by infectious energy.” Metro Life Magazine

“Excellent” The Stage

“Killer gags” Metro

“Matt Kirshen is a definite one to watch, his innocent looks belying a sharp, surreal and often gloriously sick mind” Metro

“Neurotically energetic and confessional- a name to watch” – Daily Telegraph

“His likeability almost goes off the scale” – Chortle



Bob Maclaren – World Tour
Sunday 19 June/ 21:30 / 80′
Presale 10 euros / Door 12 euros

Born in New Zealand and resident in Amsterdam, Bob Maclaren has delighted every corner of the world with his laconic and surprising comedy. A combination of kiwi isolation and the lurid madness of Amsterdam gives Bob a refreshingly unusual view of life as he sees it. A storyteller extraordinaire with a body language that can be best described as mildly unhinged; his routines have been televised on every continent.

A superbly visual performer with razor sharp observations, Bob’s stand up helped him escape his home town southernmost city in the world to grace the stages of Montreal, London, Amsterdam and every other corner of the planet.
