Testimonials for Ivan Aristeguieta
'Aristeguieta’s performance is outstanding and he leaves the audience with warm smiles on their faces. My advice: run to buy a ticket, on the off chance that there are still any available.'****
Ivan's stand up comedy at our RSB Charity dinner was an absolute hit.. Most guests commented on how funny it was and that it was a refreshing change to have someone so funny at a fundraising event. Ivan's comedy was the highlight of the event and not only did it assist us in achieving out fundraising goals but also ensured the guests had a great night. I would not hesitate in recommending Ivan for an event and I encourage you to go see one of his life stand up shows.

Ivan Aristeguieta's Biography
Ivan Aristeguieta exploded on to the Australian comedy scene in 2016 with his brilliant observations on Aussie culture and food, taking him around the country, headlining theatres and selling out festivals. Ivan has toured for the past 4 years with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow and the Sydney International Comedy Festival Showcase Tour.
In 2018 Ivan performed at the MICF Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow, hosted the RAW Comedy Grand Final and sold out his newest show ‘Matador’. Ivan has established himself as Australia's favourite Venezuelan comedian and has gathered a mass of fans for his trademark cheerful and naïve rejoicing of the unmissable Saturday Bunnings sausage sizzle.
Ivan Aristeguieta became a full time comedian after having a successful career as a Brew Master and Food Technologist in his home country of Venezuela. He left the Brewery but drinking beer is still part of his job. He quickly escalated to become part of the new Venezuelan comedy movement selling out shows around Venezuela and Miami-Florida (USA).
In 2012 Ivan migrated to Australia and took the great challenge of performing comedy in a second language and aimed for Australian laughter. 6 years after performing comedy for the first time in English Ivan is one happy comedy-migrant and he’s squeezing all the privileges the First-World can give him.
Ivan now happily calls Australia home and has established himself as Australia's favourite Venezuelan comedian, relishing the chance to perform in his second language, English. He has gathered a mass of fans for his trademark cheerful and naïve rejoicing in the troubles and joys of a land that is girt by tomato sauce...and the unmissable Saturday Bunnings sausage sizzle.
