Edinburgh Previews: Ivo Graham & Simon Evans
IVO GRAHAM: EDUCATED GUESS
After an eventful year off (got a new laptop, etc.), the boy’s back in town, with resolutions galore but less courage in his convictions than ever. How much has Ivo learnt? And what good has it done him? As seen on Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, As Yet Untitled, Live From The BBC, and Fighting Talk.
“Honed to within a whisker of perfection… a joyous show” Evening Standard
“Sharp punchlines, topper gags and the unmistakable sense of a young comic finding another gear” Scotsman
“Like Hugh Grant’s less well-adjusted younger brother” Guardian
Simon Evans – Genius.
Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the World as a Man of Genius. He has until now remained thwarted. Indeed, the world seems increasingly indifferent to true Genius of any kind, let alone Evans’s. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm…
“Super-sharp wit” TimeOut
“Wields language like a rapier” Scotsman
“Please Clap” Jeb Bush
