In 2012, this Venezuelan comedian emigrated here and performed in English for the very first time.
Within only a few months, he won a South Australian stand-up comedy competition (“OOTS-R U Funny? 2012”), and was invited to perform in the best newcomers’ showcase Adelaide Comedy’s Next Generation 2013 at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Ivan is also the winner of the 2014 Dave Grant comedy grant.
That year, he was also hand-picked to be one of five up and coming comedians to participate in the MICF’s The Comedy Zone.
Now he’s one of us. He has no worries. He puts tomato sauce on his vegemite, and doesn’t even complain.
“Hilarious” (Herald Sun).
