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.
During the pandemic Ignacio has focused on putting more comedy content online, streaming live comedy events, running a weekly quiz, teaching people how to make Sangría, sitting on his sofa for 18 hours a day and occasionally crying in the bath.
At last count (probably this morning) Ignacio’s videos have received over 20 Million views in total across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
“Charismatic with a waspish charm”
“Playful, brutal and bloody funny”
