Apologetic Eton and Oxford alumnus Ivo started stand-up in 2009 at the age of eighteen and eight months later became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious “So You Think You’re Funny” award for new acts at the Edinburgh Fringe.
This led the following year to nominations for Chortle Best Newcomer and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, and performances at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, and the Hollywood Fringe.
Since leaving university in 2012 he has become a regular fixture in the clubs and theatres of the UK comedy circuit, with a gauche charm and crafty, self-aware wit which has proved a hit with audiences of all ages.
This has led to appearances on the following shows:
Mock The Week (BBC 2)
Live At The Comedy Store (Stand Up Central)
Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Stand Up Central)
Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live (BBC3)
Sweat The Small Stuff (BBC3)
Virtually Famous (E4)
Fighting Talk (BBC Radio 5 Live)
The Josh Widdicombe Show (XFM)
