Sooshi Mango are an Australian comedy troupe made up of brothers Joe and Carlo Salanitri and their close friend Andrew Manfre. The Melbourne boys—who have taken the world by storm—will perform their all-new two-hour show comprising of live skits and hilarious musical numbers that will have the audience in stitches.
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. – Andrew Manfre
The trio’s rise in Australian comedy has been nothing short of meteoric, with their viral online videos amassing over 120 million views and counting.
Their 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.
From what we know there have only been a small number of comedy acts that have performed at Rod Laver. 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 3 idiots like us who started shooting vids in a car have ended up here. It’s truly humbling. – Carlo Salanitri
Sooshi Mango’s theatre debut was co-staring 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)!
From the car to theatres, and now to Rod Laver Arena and Qudos Bank Arena! This is when someone usually wakes you up right!! Because stuff like this has only every happened in my dreams!! I am forever grateful for everyone that has helped this dream become a reality! – Joe Salanitri
Sooshi Mango’s humour transcends cultures and borders, and their content is wildly popular with people of all backgrounds. Proud Italian Australians, their comedy is inspired by their parents and the older generation and they are happy to be able to shine a light on their heritage.
