REVIEW: Ivo Graham: Motion Sickness – 4*

Radio Ha-Ha! talks Ha-Ha!

Written by Sarah Exton

Ivo has an incredibly likeable demeanour and a subtle charm, making ‘Motion Sickness’ a delightful hour of entertainment. Kicking the show off with the topic of ‘trains’, Ivo is able to turn a usually mundane topic into a surprisingly funny opening.

The show is centred around reflections on Ivo’s transition through key milestones in his life; such as the struggles of planning the perfect proposal, moving in with his fiancée and the futures of fatherhood; whilst also telling micro-stories of his private Chiltern Train gig, his Go Ape experience, and how he didn’t lose his virginity until his early 20s.

‘Motion Sickness’ has been created with an impeccable structure; flowing effortlessly from one anecdote into another, and all having a clever climax. My personal favourite being the alliterate punchlines particularly present in the beginning of his set.

I’m not often disappointed at the end of a show, but tonight I was; due to the fact that I wanted more – his amiable presence, intelligence and delivery made the hour go by too quickly.

Catch Ivo Graham at the Soho Theatre, 21 Dean Street, London, W1D 3NEat 9PM every day until the 13th October 2018. Buy tickets here:
