Ivo Graham: The Game Of Life (Off The Kerb Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2019

Stand-up comedy as it should be done. For the uninitiated, Ivo Graham is instantly likeable, a 30-something with a wry, gently self-deprecating sense of humour. This is Graham’s sixth fringe and it shows – especially when he goes off piste with audience interactions. He easily holds the audience in the palm of his hand, with impeccable timing and jokes he’s confident will get laughs. Despite his Eton background and growing celebrity status his material all feels very easy to relate to – a slice of life from a new dad’s perspective. Super appealing: it would be hard to find anything to dislike about Ivo Graham, he’s just a genuinely funny and nice guy.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug.
