My shows are promised to be a night to remember for ALL. Each show is VARIETY packed and includes Comedy/Recording Artists/Drag Performers/Stories and Audience Participation (which has been great for Birthday/Bridal Parties/Anniversaries etc). Being the star of these shows, I am 85% entertaining, and when backstage changing costumes, other artists on the roster come out to entertain while I am updating my look for the next performance.
Ike Avelli began his career in 2009 as a 'last minute' fill in at a Christmas Party doing Stand Up comedy. The sound of laughter sealed the deal, and he would continue to write/perform his own material.
Some of his idols are Joan Rivers, Sandra Bernhard, Rodney Dangerfield, Whoopi Goldberg and Chelsea Handler.
Since 2009, he has performed at many venues around the U.S.: Las Vegas, NV; NYC; Atlantic City, NJ; Windsor, CT; Philadelphia, PA; Hollywood, FL to name a few.
He is a supporter of the LGBT Community and has performed for LIFEbeat (lifebeat.org), The Imperial Court of NY (ICNY ... .org), and Gay Men's Health Crisis (gmhc.org).
He has appeared on many talk shows around the country as well as Radio shows such as Artists Exposed with Tym Moss and has appeared in the LGBT publications of GET OUT Magazine and NEXT Magazine.
Since 2013, Ike Wrote, Produced and Starred in 7 original shows "I've Slept My Way To The Top....Twice"(2013) , "Ike Avelli Is Coming To Town" (2014) , "50 Shades of Gay" (2015), "Love On A DEAD END Street" (2016) , "I Thought I Would Be Dead By Now" (2016), "You're A Mean One, Ike Avelli" (2016) and "The Book Of Ike" (2017) in different cities and all shows were PACKED HOUSES!
"50 Shades of Gay" was a hit in NYC during PRIDE and SOLD OUT The Taj Mahal in Atlantic City in 2015. It was also selected for 4 nights at the Rochester Fringe Festival in 2017 and SOLD OUT all 4 nights. The Huffington Post called it "the performance of the summer", while hailing Ike Avelli as the "mastermind of creativity".
