Carey Marx is an unapologetic gagsmith. The jokes are short and sharp, often uncomfortably so, as any morality is sacrificed on the altar of quick laughs. And there’s no better way of guaranteeing a reaction than storming headlong into decidedly dodgy territory. Plus guests.

"Marx's slick delivery lends itself to clever verbal comedy." The Scotsman

Carey Marx is an unapologetic gagsmith. The jokes are short and sharp, often uncomfortably so, as any morality is sacrificed on the altar of quick laughs. And there’s no better way of guaranteeing a reaction than storming headlong into decidedly dodgy territory.

There’s plenty here for the connoisseur of comedy writing. The lines are efficient, original and potent – and rarely fail to blindside the audience.

And they come at a blistering rate, thanks to a hugely economical delivery. He doesn’t go out of the way to befriend an audience, yet there is a subtle charm and intelligence to him, even when the material is blatantly offensive.

"Anecdotally debauched … But if his lines are frequently sick, they're elegantly written, too, and there's a childlike glee to his naughtiness." The Herald

"Hilariously demented" Edinburgh Evening News

"Posher than a corgi working the tills at Waitrose" Chortle

Apologetic Eton and Oxford alumnus Ivo Graham 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 four solo stand-up shows have enjoyed sell-out runs at Edinburgh and London’s Soho Theatre. As the London Evening Standard put it, "if you like your comedy with long words and beautiful linguistic flourishes, buy a ticket immediately".

"Cleverly constructed comic timing" Edinburgh Evening News

"A very convincing set from this erudite comedian" The Independent

"Beautifully constructed comedy" The Scotsman
