Following a highly acclaimed, total sell-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, IVO GRAHAM brings his show Educated Guess on a tour of the UK in 2018.
In a Britain (*Facebook news feed) that demands a political and social conscience, and with the time ticking down til the loss of his youth (*Young Person’s Railcard), professional layabout and trustafarian snowflake Ivo Graham needs to stir himself out of his stupor. Sent by his parents to Eton, the Best Education A Man Can GetTM, he spent the noughties powering his way through his schoolwork on a steam train of diligence and loneliness. But somewhere along the way he got some mates, tried his hand at stand up, stopped reading books, and blinked to find himself in his mid-twenties and suddenly feeling like the least informed guy in the class: that horrible nagging sense that a banging set of exam results count for nothing in the university of life.
So here we are, then: a show about privilege-checking by a chap with more privilege to check than most: a show about self-improvement by a chap whose intellectual peak was Latin GCSE: a show about current affairs by a chap who this year “got up to date with politics” by learning all 650 UK MPs for a bet, only for a snap election to render that exercise even more futile than it already was. And, lest we forget, a comedy show, by a chap who’s taken three critically-lauded stand-up hours to the Fringe and whose most pressing concern of all is making this one the funniest yet.
Ivo has appeared on BBC’s Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Live From The BBC, Fighting Talk, and The Now Show, and Dave’s As Yet Untitled.
