Best known for:
Ivo Graham is an award winning English stand-up comedian.
Despite extensive grooming for more serious careers at Eton and Oxford, Ivo Graham (now 31) has spent his entire adult life on the comedy circuit, establishing himself as, if not the UK’s poshest, then certainly its most apologetically posh comedian.
Ivo Graham is a rapidly rising young star of standup. Within just a few years of starting to perform he was the youngest ever winner of the acclaimed So You Think You’re Funny new comedy award (previous winners include Miles Jupp, Peter Kay, Lee Mack, and Dylan Moran). With three critically-praised Edinburgh shows to his name he’s also performed at the prestigious Montreal comedy festival and other festivals around the world.
A naturally confident performer, the unapologetically posh Ivo recounts experiences of Eton boarding school, humiliation, family holidays, and social conventions. His routines are full of charm and well-crafted observations cut through with irony and self-deprecation.
Described as convincing and erudite by the Independent and by the Evening Standard as delivering “joyous comedy with long words and beautiful linguistic flourishes”, Ivo is set to be a big name in the future.
With a bumbling charm to snare audiences of all ages, he’s sold out six runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, the latest of which was nominated for the prestigious “Best Show” award in 2019, and appeared on TV shows including Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo and British As Folk.
Ivo can be heard on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz, and the drama Unite. Ivo is also a writer on BBC 5 Live’s Fighting Talk, Channel 4's The Last Leg and Jack Whitehall: Christmas With My Father.
Ivo is back on the road continuing his The Game Of Life tour.
