London Sketchfest: Max and Ivan (The Reunion)
May 4, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm$13
Multi award-winning comedy double act Max & Ivan debuted their unique brand of narrative sketch comedy in 2011, quickly establishing themselves as one of the finest sketch acts around. Winners of the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Panel Prize in 2011 and nominated for both the Barry Award for Most Outstanding Show and Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show in 2013, Ivan Gonzalez and Max Olesker are tipped for future stardom. They have compered at the Hammersmith Apollo, appeared at festivals across the globe including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Latitude, Bestival and SXSW. They have appeared in Badults (BBC Three) and on Sketchorama (BBC Radio 4), and have written and starred in a series of sketches for BBC Comedy Online. Nominated for the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show and fresh from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival – and their Barry Award 2013 nomination, Max and Ivan’s The Reunion spins a bewitching sketch comedy tale of love, loss and shatterproof rulers. Directed by Tom Parry (Pappy’s).
