Ivan Aristeguieta became a full time comedian after having a successful career as a Brew Master and Food Technologist in his home country of Venezuela. He left the Brewery but drinking beer is still part of his job. He quickly escalated to become part of the new Venezuelan comedy movement selling out shows around Venezuela and Miami-Florida (USA).
On the year 2012 Ivan migrated to Australia and took the great challenge of performing comedy in a second language and aimed for Australian laughter. 8 years after performing comedy for the first time in English Ivan is one happy comedy-migrant and he’s squeezing all the privileges the First-World can give him. From his own TV show, Lost in Pronunciation, his live stand-up TV special debut, Chorizo Sizzle, the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal on 2017 and numerous TV appearances in Australian shows such as: MICF Opening Gala, Have you Been Paying Attention, Celebrity Name Game, Hughesy We Have a Problem and The Project.
'Aristeguieta’s performance is outstanding and he leaves the audience with warm smiles on their faces. My advice: run to buy a ticket, on the off chance that there are still any available.'**** Arts Hub
