Jack Dee & Ivo Graham - Work in Progress Double Bill

Join Jack Dee as he road tests his new show! With special guest Ivo Graham.
Established as one of Britain’s well loved and biggest comedy stars, Jack Dee has captured the imagination of audiences and critics with his dry humour and dead pan delivery. He’s won three British Comedy Awards, and was nominated for Best Entertainment Performer at the 2005 BAFTAs.
Jack’s stand up career began in 1986 when he delivered his first open mike spot at the world famous London Comedy Store. Like most established comedians it wasn’t until 1991 that he got his first big break by being nominated for the Edinburgh Festival Perrier Award and wining the British Comedy Award for Best Comedy Newcomer. Since then he has hosted the critically acclaimed The Jack Dee Show on Channel 4 which went on to run for two series. He then moved to ITV where he hosted Jack Dee’s Saturday Night (1995) and Jack Dee’s Sunday Service (1997). By 2000 he had moved to BBC1 and presented two series of Jack Dee’s Happy Hour.
In 2004 Jack hosted Jack Dee Live at the Apollo (BAFTA nominated) which was quickly followed by a second series in 2005. In 2006 Jack teamed up with Pete Sinclair to write the critically acclaimed sitcom Lead Balloon for BBC4. Rave reviews and record ratings saw the series repeated on BBC2 that same year, and it was quickly followed by a further series of eight episodes in 2007. In 2008 a third series of six shows and a Christmas special aired on BBC2, followed in the summer of 2011 by the final series of a further six shows.
As an actor Jack has appeared in The Ambassador (BBC1), Silent Witness(BBC1), The Grimleys (ITV1), Dalziel and Pascoe (BBC1), Jonathan Creek(BBC1), The Deputy (BBC1) and Tunnel of Love (ITV1). Jack has appeared on the big screen in Londinium, Spivs and, in 2006, The Last Drop and Short Order. His West End stage debut as an actor came in 1998 when he played the role of Yvan in the critically acclaimed production of Art at the Wyndhams Theatre; he later returned to play the part Serge in the same production.

Ivo Graham
Apologetic 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’.
