Off The Kerb Edinburgh Preview: Ivo Graham, Phil Jerrod
"In an extraordinary geographical feat, the Wedge Comedy festival will be bringing the Edinburgh Fringe hundreds of miles south to Portsmouth this summer.
At just twenty-three years old, Ivo Graham’s gauche charm belies a talent rarely seen in someone so young. The Eton alumnus combines insightful stories of adolescence and fellow students with a sharp witted presence that has rapidly gained him the acclaim of his audience, fellow artists and the critics alike.
If you like your comedy with long words and beautiful linguistic flourishes, buy a ticket immediately.’
Phil Jerrod began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012.
Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life."
