Ivo Graham

Ivo Graham is a comedian. We met him, and some of his family, last year at a Christmas Fair. He bought a gift for his father (a log gobbler, which he thought his dad would find funny….) and in the process of buying it also supported the charity the Christmas Fair was raising money for.

He was a lovely chap and laughed a lot. We like that in our customers….!

Then lo and behold, here he is, providing 30 minutes of funny on the BBC – check it out:

He will also be at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival, where Chloe of Modern Mint will be going to see him perform live.

We hope if you are there, you will get a ticket to see him too. If not, then follow the link and watch Ivo at the BBC!
