The brilliant Ivan Aristeguieta (MICF Gala, Lost in Pronunciation) is set to sizzle at Fresh Comedy this December. Plus Gavin Baskerville, Alissa Claire, and Liz Corrick and hosted by Stewart Bell.
From his own ABC sitcom, Lost in Pronunciation, to his debut live stand-up TV special, Chorizo Sizzle, Ivan exploded on to the scene in 2016 with his brilliant observations on Aussie culture and food, taking him around the country, headlining theatres and selling out festivals.
In 2012 Ivan migrated from Venezuela to Adelaide and took up the challenge of performing comedy in a second language. Six months later he’d collected his first comedy award and was chosen to perform in Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Comedy Zone and Roadshow.
He took the country by storm with his performance at the MICF 2016 OXFAM Gala. This performance made him the hottest ticket at the Melbourne Comedy Festival where he completely sold out his season. He then won Sydney’s Best Newcomer Award (joint winner with Demi Lardner).
In 2016 Ivan won Best Newcomer in the Sydney Comedy Festival and won the Weekly Award for Comedy at The Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2017 for his hilarious sold out show Juithy.
