- Eton Educated Stand-Up Comedian
- Winner of So You Think Youíre Funny
- Awards Host & After Dinner Comedy
Despite extensive grooming for more serious careers at Eton and Oxford, Ivo has spent his entire adult life on the stand-up circuit, winning So You Think You’re Funny? aged 18 and since establishing himself as, if not the UK’s poshest, then certainly its most apologetically posh comedian. With a bumbling charm to snare audiences of all ages, he’s detailed the various developments in his relationships/neuroses over seven sell-out solo shows, including 2019’s The Game of Life, which received nominations for Best Show and Best Joke at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Ivo has appeared on TV comedies including Have I Got News for You, QI, The Last Leg, Mock the Week, and Live at the Apollo, quizzed with varying degrees of success on Pointless, House of Games and University Challenge, and toured the country with Fern Brady and Darren Harriott for Dave’s six-part travelogue British as Folk.
He has also finally earned his parents’ respect with appearances on Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz, Just a Minute, and the drama Unite, and shoehorned Swindon Town references into many an episode of 5 Live’s Fighting Talk and BT Sport’s The Football’s On.
More than anything, though, Ivo’s perhaps best known for his visits to the tripe factory in the Quickly Kevin podcast’s Steve Barnes episodes, and his love of bananas and yoghurt leading to him being the victim of a prank on Off Menu’s Redemption Dinner Party during lockdown 3. With these cult contributions under his belt, he started hosting (alongside best friend Alex Kealy) his own podcast, Gig Pigs, a heroically cost – and time -inefficient celebration of their love of live music.
Ivo also appeared as a contestant on the fifteenth series of Channel 4’s Taskmaster and has also starred in Mock The Week , Live At The Comedy Store, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Sweat The Small Stuff , Virtually Famous , The Josh Widdecombe Show and has sold out runs in Edinburgh and London.
