Apologetic Eton and Oxford alumnus Ivo started stand-up in 2009 at the age of 18 and eight months and later became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award for new acts at the Edinburgh Fringe. Since graduating three years later he has become a regular fixture in the clubs and theatres of the UK circuit, with a gauche charm and crafty, self-aware wit which has proved a hit with audiences of all ages, and led to appearances on multiple TV and radio shows including Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Live From The BBC, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store and As Yet Untitled. He is a regular writer on Fighting Talk and The Last Leg as well as several others, he is also busy developing his own sitcom for the BBC.
His four solo stand-up shows have enjoyed sell-out runs at Edinburgh and London’s Soho Theatre. Ivo recently performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival where he made his Australian television debut and Sydney Comedy Festival. He undertook his first UK tour this spring and is returning to the Edinburgh Festival in August.
The future is incredibly bright for this young star.
