Ivo Graham

Fee Band

A rising young star of the standup circuit, the unapologetically posh Ivo delivers observations about his life and awkwardness with charm and self-deprecation. The So You Think You’re Funny award winner has been described as delivering “joyous comedy with long words and beautiful linguistic flourishes”.


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 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.

As well as appearances on Radio 4, BBC Three’s Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live and Comedy Central's Live At The Comedy Store, Ivo has supported Josh Widdicombe and Michael McIntyre on tour as well as having written material for The Last Leg and Mock The Week.
