Comedy troupe Sooshi Mango bring Off The Boat tour to Newcastle

They are the Aussie viral comedy sensation that has amassed more than 120 million views online.

And now Sooshi Mango is heading to the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Saturday 11 September 2021 as part of the troupe’s selling-like-hotcakes Off The Boat tour.

If you’ve been living under a rock with no wi-fi, Sooshi Mango is a trio of mirth-makers comprising brothers Joe and Carlo Salanitri and good mate Andrew Manfre.

The Melbourne-based comedians’ characters, most notably their ethnic dad and ethnic mum characters, have made their way from video skits in their parents’ garages, to television screens across the country, to stages around the world.

Sooshi Mango’s theatre debut was co-starring alongside Nick Giannopoulos in 2017 for two sold-out national tours—Wogs at Work (2018) and Star Wogs (2018).

The trio then went on to sell-out shows in Canada with ‘Ethnic Vacation, the Invasion of Canada’, before returning to Australia to tour their outrageously funny ‘Fifty Shades of Ethnic’, which included 14 sold-out shows at the Forum Theatre and one sold-out show at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne, four sold-out shows at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, and many more performances around the country (33 in total)!

This upcoming tour will see the boys tackle their biggest crowds yet – most notably at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne and Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena.

“From what we know there have only been a small number of comedy acts that have performed at Rod Laver,” Carlo Salanitri said.

“Apparently, we will be the second Australian comedy act and the first-ever Melburnian comedy act to have performed at this iconic arena. That makes me feel really proud and it’s crazy to think three idiots like us who started shooting vids in a car have ended up here.  It’s truly humbling.”

Andrew Manfre added: “As an entertainer I am so grateful to our fans for giving us the opportunity to perform at this level.  We are honoured fly the banner for all immigrants that came to this great country in search of a better life. Can’t wait to hear the roaring laughs and smell the garlic breath in the air.”
