Ivan Decker is one of my all-time favorite comedians. His material is hilariously funny and original and clever.
He has an absolutely perfect voice for comedy. It is engaging, easy to understand, and has a humorous lilt to it.
Furthermore, Ivan’s pacing is genius, taking you along for the comedic ride while still giving you time to breathe, to enjoy the scenery, and to savor the setup and the delivery. It sounds manic, without actually being manic. A better word for it might be “exhilarating”.
And best of all, he is a “clean comic”. This is an increasingly rare quality among comedians. In this day and age, it takes far more comedic talent to talk about ordinary things that affect us all in a humorous manner, rather than rely on the crutches of profanity, gutter mentality, and juvenile prurience. Ivan avoids all of those traps and delivers pure comedy, as refined as 24k gold.
Here is one of my favorite routines by Ivan. I invite you to check out all of his material that you can find, for it is all hilarious. And if you ever get a chance to see him in person … well … I envy you!
