The SMASH HIT of this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Australia’s favourite Venezuelan is back! And he’s carrying a big stick!

Ivan survived lockdown, and now he just wants to smash something. But when life dangles a piñata in front of you, what do you do? Do you keep your blindfold on? Or take a swing?

As a boy, Ivan bashed many piñatas. Decades later, he must confront this tradition once again; but this time in Japan, with his Mum on the day he turned forty.

But the irony of the piñata is, you must destroy something beautiful to get to the good stuff inside. And it’s never the piñata you expect.

As seen on ‘Have You Been Paying Attention?’, ‘Hughesy We Have A Problem‘ and Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala
