Edinburgh Festival Fringe: Binoculars: Ivo Graham
The So You Think You're Funny? 2009 New Act award winner, Chortle Best Newcomer nominee, and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year nominee is 22 years old and has been performing stand-up comedy for four years, at locations as diverse as the Hollywood Fringe, the Montreal Just For Laughs festival, and the Bognor Regis Yacht Club. But nothing he has ever said has been nearly as funny as when his younger brother said the word 'binoculars' at Christmas dinner last year. It seemed only fair that this should be the title of the show.
Ivo combines insightful stories of adolescence with a sharp witted presence that has rapidly gained him the acclaim of his audience, fellow artists and the critics alike.
Fifty-five minutes of rambling anecdotes about sibling rivalry, historical board games and the rising price of rice pudding in south London.
Apologetic Eton and Oxford alumnus, Ivo started stand-up in 2009 at the age of 18, and 8 months later became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award for new acts at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Now a regular fixture in the clubs and theatres of the UK circuit, his gauche charm and crafty, self-aware wit 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, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, As Yet Untitled, Live From the BBC and Fighting Talk.
