Each Comedian of the Month on MoodyComedy is a comic who has never previously featured on the website. Reasons for selection can include various current projects the comedian is involved with, or perhaps recent appearances on television programmes or podcasts. There is no strict criteria however, as Comedian of the Month simply stands as a collection of recommendations, highlighting interesting and original aspects of certain comedians and their work.
Ignacio Lopez is a Spanish stand-up comic and MC currently based in Cardiff. MoodyComedy saw him acting as MC at Buffalo Comedy’s Christmas showcase, and he was undeniably the linchpin of the whole affair.
Lopez is a very playful comic who isn’t afraid to make brutal asides about members of the audience. He doesn’t even try to cover them with a fake gasp or a laugh or some kind of appeasement. He’s pretty reckless with it, but it is this that gives him his charm. Ignacio is so endearing that his audiences feel obliged to give him a free pass; we don’t care if he rips us apart on stage, because he’s bloody funny with it.
And paired with this affable demeanour, Ignacio has a distinguished ability to generate relevant anecdotes for his current audience, seemingly having something interesting to say about any topic or situation. This flexibility will stand him in good stead and no doubt he’ll be making an even bigger impression on the club circuit in years to come.
