Show Info

‘Another bubbling casserole of material privilege and emotional angst from Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and occasional panel show chipper-inner Graham, this time live from his childhood bedroom, which he’s spent the last four months deep cleaning in the absence of any paid work or social life. What nostalgic treasures has he unearthed from his past? (Mostly letters from mum). And what lessons can they give for the present? (Must write to mum). Come feast on his peeling wallpaper and really superb internet speed.’

Ivo is a stand-up comic of eleven years, a man of twenty-nine, and a father of one, who didn’t realise there was a separate bio for him and his show, did the latter first, and now feels like a bit of an egg. Still, good to whack in a couple more credits: Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, and various extremely waffly podcast appearances (Steve Barnes on Quickly Kevin: yoghurt and banana on Off Menu). He’s grown a beard in lockdown, which has received mix responses on the family Zoom (aunt and brother positive, dad and sister negative, jury still out with mum).
