pologetic Eton and Oxford alumnus Ivo started stand-up in 2009 at the age of eighteen and eight months later became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award for new acts at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Since graduating three years later he has become a regular fixture in the clubs and theatres of the UK circuit, with a gauche charm and crafty, self-aware wit which has proved a hit with audiences of all ages, and led to appearances on multiple TV and radio shows including Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, As Yet Untitled, Live From the BBC and Fighting Talk. He has also written for various other TV comedy shows, as well as his own sitcom projects in development with Big Talk Productions and the BBC.
His three solo stand-up shows have enjoyed sell-out runs at Edinburgh and London’s Soho Theatre, and he will be returning there and elsewhere to perform his fourth hour in 2017. As the Evening Standard put it, ‘if you like your comedy with long words and beautiful linguistic flourishes, buy a ticket immediately’.
CHORTLE AWARD NOMINEE 2012 FOR BEST CLUB COMIC
FINALIST ON CHANNEL 4'S SO YOU THINK YOU'RE FUNNY?
Michael Fabbri has been a stand up since 2003 and regularly performs at major comedy clubs throughout the UK and all over the world.
He has worked as a writer for Radio and TV and recently had his own stand up series: 'Dyslexicon' on BBC radio 4. He has done several solo shows at the Edinburgh fringe festival and worked as a support act for Micky Flanagan, Lucy Porter, and Stephen K Amos.
He has an affable and electric style of comedy, with material that ranges from the cerebral to the smutty.
At 5 he once did stand-up at a family friend's birthday and got shouted at for being too mean to the guests.
Traumatised, he took an 18-year gap from comedy.
In 2011, Sam co-founded the improv group SHOOT FROM THE HIP!, which has performed weekly residencies at The Top Secret Comedy Club, Angel Comedy, Up The Creek and The Bill Murray.
In 2014, a comedian at Top Secret saw Sam do the opening 10 minutes of crowd work and warm up for the improv show, asking him if he would like to try some stand up at his night in London Bridge. Nervously saying yes… it turned out to the start of a career in stand up comedy.
Becoming a regular of the London Comedy Circuit, Sam now performs around the country and internationally.
In 2017, Sam also started hosting the political Talk Show, Off The Mic for YouTube.
An in 2018 Sam will be taking his debut solo show LUCKY BASTARD to the Edfringe
