Ivor Dembina is a London based comedian who uses the traditional flavour of Jewish humour to tackle tricky subjects. In 2019 he received the ‘Editor’s Pick of the Fringe Award’ from ThreeWeeks.
His first solo show, Stand Up Jewish Comedy (1994) was a comic critique of his own life as a Jew brought up in north London, UK. His next show was SadoJudaism (2001), a close up and peculiarly Jewish view of the worlds of fetishism and sadomasochism. His most political show (2004) was a comic account of his visit to Israel and Palestine entitled ‘This is Not a Subject for Comedy’. He was the recipient of the ‘Editor’s Pick of the Fringe Award’
Whether he is doing a club set, in solo mode or teaching you can expect a mixture of thoughtful routines and top gags held together by a natural ease with the audience, a quality he’s acquired through his extensive experience as a compere.
