Max and Ivan



Max & Ivan are the must-see sketch duo in UK comedy; critically-lauded and multi-award winning. They have starred in the BBC’s hit comedy W1A, Matt Lucas’s Pompidou and created The Casebook of Max & Ivan for BBC Radio 4, which over two series has had guest-stars including Joanna Lumley, Reece Shearsmith, and June Whitfield and received rave reviews.

The duo – Max Olesker and Ivan Gonzalez - were nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Best Show Award and also secured the Edinburgh Comedy Award Panel Prize for their epic creation The Wrestling. They have toured across the globe, gaining a nomination for Most Outstanding Show in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and have most recently performed in both New York and LA at the famous Upright Citizens Brigade.
