“Funnier than an entire series of Alan Partridge” – Daily Telegraph
“Laughs per minute the funniest show in Edinburgh” – Time Out
Described by Chris Evans as ‘a comedy genius’, Ivan is a truly bizarre and twisted comic creation, a hospital radio D.J with delusions of grandeur that would make even Noel Edmonds blush. His show has wowed punters at festivals all over the world and created a frenzy at the Edinburgh Festival where the show won the coveted ‘Spirit Of The Fringe’ Award and was nominated for the If.comedy Best Show Award.
Ivan has appeared on his own show on Radio 2 along with spots on Breakfast TV, Radio 1, Virgin and GLR and Channel 4′s ’4-Music’ as well as sold out solo shows at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre. He was also voted in the Top 50 most memorable gigs of the decade by the illustrious comedy website Chortle.
Ian D Montfort
“Ian D Montfort, is a spookily skilled, wonderfully observed and hysterically funny character who contacts dead celebrities with incredible results. A monster hit at the Edinburgh Fringe” ***** Time Out London
“The style of the act is genius – if it works, it’s impressive, if it doesn’t work, well it’s all part of the joke” **** Chortle
“…the character remains hilarious even as the tricks become remarkable. It is two shows for the price of one: pin-sharp character comedy and metaphysical magic to boot” **** Guardian
Comic spirit medium Ian D Montfort will be performing material from his recent critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival show wowing the audience with his mind-blowing spirit medium skills and becoming one of the most talked-about cult hits of the festival. He is a New Zealand Comedy Festival award winner and his own 4 part Radio 2 series ‘Unbelievable’ was broadcast in February 2013.
‘The show features possibly the cleverest running gag of all time. Tom’s family is with us – his father, wife, daughter and son. They arrive in a large suitcase and I will leave Binns to tell you all about them when you see the show. Not only is the running gag a thing of comedy genius, but Binns tags it jaw-droppingly brilliantly’ – Kate Copstick, The Scotsman ★★★★★
‘Took zany and surreal to new heights with intricate and fairly complex setups for some very funny pay-offs’ – The Public Reviews
Imagine a rockabilly ZZ Top with a flair for inventive wordplay, skewed observational wit and a commanding stage presence. Funhouse and Bradford comedy gong winner.
