Spain’s best export, Ignacio Lopez, (Star of Live At The Apollo, The Now Show, Stand-Up Sesh, & more) scrutinises his immigrant upbringing and family tree in a relentlessly funny show about clashing cultures and never fitting in.
In 2009, from his derelict flat in South Wales, Ignacio scored tickets to see his favourite band, Nine Inch Nails, in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, he didn’t have money, transport, or a place to stay. Sharing his biggest failures with a hilarious, globe- trotting story about music, comedy, and cock-ups, Ignacio skewers Britain and Spain with an armada of sarcasm, silliness, and songs.
Expect observational stand-up, wicked humour, and sharp lines, from the exotic outsider comedian with over 100 million video views online.

Ignacio Lopez is a Spanish & Welsh comedian based in Cardiff. His parents are Welsh/Irish & Moroccan/Spanish, and he has a German sister; family get-togethers are like a meeting of the U.N.
As well as hosting TV shows, headlining top comedy clubs all over the U.K and Europe, and taking the piss out of British people directly to their faces, Ignacio writes sketches, sitcoms, and tweets. Every few months something he tweets will go viral and he’ll gain a few thousand followers before they realise he doesn’t just tweet witty observations about public transport and songs about hating the U.K. – then they unfollow until the next tweet goes viral. The fickle bastards.
Ignacio has performed for the Wales football squad, opened for James Dean Bradfield of Manic Street Preachers, and hosts comedy and corporate events around the World.
