Who are you?
Ivor Dembina. I’m a stand-up comedian who uses Jewish humour to tackle tricky subjects. Over the years I’ve written and performed four shows on Jewish themes which have taken me all over the UK including a special gig at the House of Commons as well as going overseas to the United States, Australia, Germany, Israel and on the West Bank.
What’s your show about?
Jewish pain made funny. Not just subjects that pre-occupy modern Jews like the Middle East and anti-Semitism but personal stuff as seen through Jewish eyes.
Is this the first time you’ve played in Manchester?
Over the years I’ve played all the universities as well Clubs like The Buzz and XS Malarkey. This is my first performance of a solo show.
How long have you been doing comedy?
Hard to say, but its said they found a review of my show in the Dead Sea scrolls.
What are the 3 funniest words in the English language?
Israel wants peace.
