Spain's best export, Ignacio Lopez, scrutinises his family tree and his immigrant upbringing in a relentlessly funny show about clashing cultures, legacies, and never fitting in. Ignacio contemplates if his ancestors would be proud of where he's ended up, performing an armada of sarcasm, silliness, and songs. As seen on BBC One's Stand-Up Sesh. Heard on BBC 5 Live and The Now Show (BBC Radio 4). Jason Manford and John Bishop tour support. 'Unique and hilarious' (Buzz). 'Charismatic with waspish charm' (Chortle.co.uk).
