Iván Aristeguieta

Iván Aristeguieta

The Festival is thrilled to welcome Iván Aristeguieta as 2018 Festival Ambassador. From his own ABC sitcom, Lost in Pronunciation, to his debut live standup TV special, Chorizo Sizzle, Iván has established himself as Australia’s favourite Venezuelan comedian.

He exploded on to the scene in 2016 with his brilliant observations on Aussie culture and food, taking him around the country, headlining theatres and selling out festivals. Iván was the winner of Sydney Comedy Festival's Best Newcomer Award, has performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival TV and OXFAM Galas, hosted the RAW Comedy Grand Final and has sold out shows in London and the Edinburgh Fringe. You can see Iván on ‘Have You Been Paying Attention’ on Channel Ten.
