‘Congratulations – you made it to the Fourth Floor’.

This is how Venezuelans wish each other happy birthday when they turn 40. Now Ivan is celebrating that milestone, he wants to share that floor with everyone in his new Australian home, in the best way he know show, by kicking off six-city national festival tour in 2019.

“Every year I write a show about the subject I’ve been dwelling on the most,” says Ivan. “I can’t deny that turning 40 is my main concern. I’ve heard that people in Okinawa live to be 100-years-old. I think we should all go to Okinawa and seek their advice. Also, if you’returning 40, you should know where Okinawa is because I know you loved The Karate Kid movies.”

A brew master, food technologist and comedian back in Venezuela, Ivan Aristeguieta emigrated to Australia in 2012 and quickly found his feet in the Australian comedy scene, drawn to the Aussie ‘piss-take’comedy style. From his own ABC sitcom Lost in Pronunciation to his debut Chorizo Sizzle, he endeared audiences with his brilliant observations of Australian culture and food.

Ivan has appeared on Have You Been Paying Attention?, ABC Comedy Up Late, Just For Laughs TV Gala and Melbourne International Comedy Festival TV Gala to name a few. His 2018 tour Matador saw him selling out festivals and his most recent 2018 World Tour has kicked things up to another level, heading up to The Fourth Floor!

For Ivan, The Fourth Floor is about four decades of life. “Call it a mid-life crisis or amid-life celebration,” he says. “Four decades of a man who has done too much,or too little depending on how you see it.” He observes, “In Venezuela life was hard, but decisions were easy. In Australia, life is easy, but decisions are hard.” He thought Third World problems were bad, but now he has First World problems – which rubbish bin goes out this week or how do you pronounce ‘Woolloomooloo’.

One of the things Ivan looks forward to the most each year is the comedy festival season to catch-up with his fans. “Every festival season is different,” he says. “I love to experience and witness the evolution in my comedy. Loyal audience members that come to my shows every year are already like family. They know what I’ve been through over the years. Last year lots of people told me after the show that they were happy for me that I’ve moved on from my divorce. Some people told me I’ve lost weight and that I should eat more. I’ve got family all over Australia. It’s beautiful.”

Felicity Ward @ Brisbane Powerhouse, BRISBANE QLD

After three long years, Felicity Ward is back and Busting A Nut

Comedian Felicity Ward is busting a proverbial nut as she returns to Australia for the Comedy Festival season for the first time in years, hot on the heels of her sell-out Busting A Nut UK tour and following her nomination for the most prestigious award in live comedy, Best Comedy, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018. Felicity is jumped up, hyped up and ready to make Aussie audiences bust their own nuts as she takes them through her hilarious exploits of what happens when you take a year off comedy.

Central Coast born Felicity now resides in the UK and can’t wait to get back down under for this special run of shows. “I’m absolutely pumped,” she says. “I think the longer I am away from Australia, the stronger my accent gets too. I’m terrified of losing it and becoming one of those Aussies who is in London for three weeks and starts pronouncing the ‘t’in water. I’ll be saying ‘strewth’ and ‘fair dinkum’ every five to eight words I’m back home, I’d say.”

Since her last trip to Oz, she’s been busy!She’s starred in her own Netflix special as part of the series Live From The BBC, also appeared on the BBC’s Live At The ApolloMock The Week, recorded her own BBC Radio-4 series Appisodes on whether technology can save her from herself, regularly co-hosts The Guilty Feminist podcast, and co-hosted her own: The Urnbelievable Ashes Podcast. She’seven managed to squeeze in a cameo in the upcoming series of ABC TV’s The Let Down.

She says audiences coming along to the Australian shows will learn absolutely nothing, but they can expect to laugh.“The show is a bit of a bullet point round up of my life for the past two years, told through the medium of straight-up jokes,” she says. “The best way to describe it is… put your finger in your belly button and move it around.Now, smell your finger… it’s nothing like that. Also… gross! Why did you do that?!”

There isn’t much Felicity Ward can’t do. A comedian, actor and writer, she has been garnering acclaim across the board for her works. Her show What If There Is No Toilet? earned her great recognition for breaking down the stigma around mental health and IBS, which came off the back of her acclaimed documentary Felicity’s Mental Mission in 2016. A regular face on UK TV, she has opened for the likes of Katherine Ryan, Maria Bamford and Amy Schumer, to name a few, and has more awards and award-nominations than you can poke a stick at. She’s now back touring her first national Australian tour in three years because it’s been the only chance she’s had with such a busy UK schedule.

“I’ve got some TV things coming up,” she says.“Roast Battle for Comedy Central and Stand Up Sketch Show for ITV2 in the UK.It looks like there will be some more Urnbelievable Ashes Podcast coming at you, … Then I’m being a fancy actor in a play later in the year, but I can’t say what it is yet – mucho secreto!”

Book your tickets now because it might be another three years before we see one of our best back on these shores.

Since her last trip to Oz, she’s been busy!She’s starred in her own Netflix special as part of the series Live From The BBC, also appeared on the BBC’s Live At The ApolloMock The Week, recorded her own BBC Radio-4 series Appisodes on whether technology can save her from herself, regularly co-hosts The Guilty Feminist podcast, and co-hosted her own: The Urnbelievable Ashes Podcast. She’seven managed to squeeze in a cameo in the upcoming series of ABC TV’s The Let Down.

She says audiences coming along to the Australian shows will learn absolutely nothing, but they can expect to laugh.“The show is a bit of a bullet point round up of my life for the past two years, told through the medium of straight-up jokes,” she says. “The best way to describe it is… put your finger in your belly button and move it around.Now, smell your finger… it’s nothing like that. Also… gross! Why did you do that?!”

There isn’t much Felicity Ward can’t do. A comedian, actor and writer, she has been garnering acclaim across the board for her works. Her show What If There Is No Toilet? earned her great recognition for breaking down the stigma around mental health and IBS, which came off the back of her acclaimed documentary Felicity’s Mental Mission in 2016. A regular face on UK TV, she has opened for the likes of Katherine Ryan, Maria Bamford and Amy Schumer, to name a few, and has more awards and award-nominations than you can poke a stick at. She’s now back touring her first national Australian tour in three years because it’s been the only chance she’s had with such a busy UK schedule.

“I’ve got some TV things coming up,” she says.“Roast Battle for Comedy Central and Stand Up Sketch Show for ITV2 in the UK.It looks like there will be some more Urnbelievable Ashes Podcast coming at you, … Then I’m being a fancy actor in a play later in the year, but I can’t say what it is yet – mucho secreto!”

Book your tickets now because it might be another three years before we see one of our best back on these shores.

‘Congratulations – you made it to the Fourth Floor’.

This is how Venezuelans wish each other happy birthday when they turn 40. Now Ivan is celebrating that milestone, he wants to share that floor with everyone in his new Australian home, in the best way he know show, by kicking off six-city national festival tour in 2019.

“Every year I write a show about the subject I’ve been dwelling on the most,” says Ivan. “I can’t deny that turning 40 is my main concern. I’ve heard that people in Okinawa live to be 100-years-old. I think we should all go to Okinawa and seek their advice. Also, if you’returning 40, you should know where Okinawa is because I know you loved The Karate Kid movies.”

A brew master, food technologist and comedian back in Venezuela, Ivan Aristeguieta emigrated to Australia in 2012 and quickly found his feet in the Australian comedy scene, drawn to the Aussie ‘piss-take’comedy style. From his own ABC sitcom Lost in Pronunciation to his debut Chorizo Sizzle, he endeared audiences with his brilliant observations of Australian culture and food.

Ivan has appeared on Have You Been Paying Attention?, ABC Comedy Up Late, Just For Laughs TV Gala and Melbourne International Comedy Festival TV Gala to name a few. His 2018 tour Matador saw him selling out festivals and his most recent 2018 World Tour has kicked things up to another level, heading up to The Fourth Floor!

For Ivan, The Fourth Floor is about four decades of life. “Call it a mid-life crisis or amid-life celebration,” he says. “Four decades of a man who has done too much,or too little depending on how you see it.” He observes, “In Venezuela life was hard, but decisions were easy. In Australia, life is easy, but decisions are hard.” He thought Third World problems were bad, but now he has First World problems – which rubbish bin goes out this week or how do you pronounce ‘Woolloomooloo’.

One of the things Ivan looks forward to the most each year is the comedy festival season to catch-up with his fans. “Every festival season is different,” he says. “I love to experience and witness the evolution in my comedy. Loyal audience members that come to my shows every year are already like family. They know what I’ve been through over the years. Last year lots of people told me after the show that they were happy for me that I’ve moved on from my divorce. Some people told me I’ve lost weight and that I should eat more. I’ve got family all over Australia. It’s beautiful.”
