Andrew Manfre – Sooshi MangoWith over 600 million views online, Sooshi Mango is a renowned comedy trio who have captivated global audiences with their witty humour and entertaining sketches inspired by their experiences growing up in an Italian family. The trio has also ventured into opening a restaurant in Carlton, a wine label, film, podcast and sellout Australian tours.
Awarded Favourite Digital Comedy Creator at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTA) in December 2021, the trio reflect on their most significant learnings from their College days; “no one remembers average” (Andrew), “do the hard work and make the tough decisions” (Carlo) and “continuous hard work pays off” (Joe).
When they’re not touring the stage with their comedy skits, the boys make videos that accrue millions of likes and record the Sooshi Mango Saucy Meatballs Podcast, featuring a mixture of special guests, comedy segments, prank calls and the trio’s take on current issues and modern life.
Being the only comedy act to sell out Rod Laver Arena three times in a row, Joe, Carlo and Andrew have grown their brand exponentially, opening a restaurant in Carlton, creating a range of classic Italian-style wine that would make their village proud as well as making their debut in cinemas and achieving sell out tours.
In their personal lives, Andrew is married to Casey and father to Tano, Noelle and Felix, Carlo is married to Fifi and Joe is married to Georgina and father to Luca and Alessia.
