AN international comedian is heading to Cabarita for one show this weekend.

British comedian Jeff Green has sold out shows at Adelaide Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, so it's a real coup to have this international star of comedy at the Cabarita Beach Sports Club this weekend.

Mr Green is a best-selling author with his books selling over 300,000 copies.

This hard-working comedian was found on UK radio and TV, his BBC Radio 2 comedy series of The Green Guide to Life attracted audience averages of more than three million radio listeners.

His recent UK TV appearances include Celebrity MasterChef (twice), Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (both BBC1) and as team captain on Bill Bailey's Birdwatching Bonanza (Sky 1).

Mr Green has long been a feature comedian at International Comedy Festivals such as Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Montreal Just For Laughs and the Edinburgh Comedy Festival.

Since marrying his sweetheart and moving to Melbourne, Green has been making his mark on the Aussie comedy scene with appearances on Spicks and Specks, Good News Week and yearly telecasts of the Melbourne Comedy Festival's Gala performance.

The master of ceremony for Mr Green's night at Cabarita is Mullumbimby comedian Mandy Nolan.

"His material is not just funny, it's insightful, uncliched and original," Ms Nolan said.

"As a father of young children in a committed relationship, Green's at his best when he is narrating the everyday challenges a fella faces in maintaining his masculinity in a sea of nappies and domesticity.

Catch Mark McConville on Saturday, May 26, from 7pm at the Cabarita Beach Sports Club.

Tickets are available for $15 at the club, phone 02 6676 1135.
