Go To

Ivor Biggun is the stage name of Robert "Doc" Cox, a British musician and former television journalist, and former host for That's Life. He's known for smutty songs littered with double entendres that occasionally cross the line into a triple entendre by turning out to be Exactly What It Says on the Tin, often accompanied by ukulele music. He has been a frequent contributor to Dr. Demento and his eponymous show.

Tropes associated with this creator:

  • Acquired Error at the Printer: "The Winker's Song (Misprint)" is not a direct example of this, having been an intentional change in spelling to try to get "The Wanker's Song" some airplay. The pattern continues in "Walking My Blues Away"note , "I've Parted"note , and "My Brother's Got Files"note  among others.
  • Affectionate Parody: "Probing Andromeda" is a smutty send-up of David Bowie's "Space Oddity".
  • Bad Humor Truck: "Mr. Fellatio, the Ice Cream Man" might be an aversion as the song lyrics don't seem to indicate much more than an ice-cream man with an unfortunate name. The album artwork, on the other hand...
  • Bawdy Song: "A Cue For A Song" purports to be exactly this, the tragic tale of a pool player thrown out into the cold without his balls.
  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: "John Thomas Allcock":
    "And then, he got married. Had five kids and, It comes as no surprise,
    He's got a luverly wife, with a rather strange expression in her eyes."
  • Cheating with the Milkman: "Toolbag Ted From Birkenhead" is a song about the eponymous handyman who "fixes" the women at the various locations he does repairs at. One of the sideplots is the singer coming to realize that yes, Ted is having sex with his wife.
  • Double Entendre: This is his bread and butter. To give an example, from "The Pussy Song"
    "My girl has got a pussy she keeps it hid from view
    And everywhere that she goes that pussy goes there too
    It don't drink milk or wash it's face and it don't even purr
    But it's got lovely whiskers and a lot of ginger fur"
    • In this case, it's a triple entendre because the end of the song has him finding the eponymous cat.
  • Gag Penis: "John Thomas Allcock" takes this to an extreme.
    "He is the man with the biggest plonker in the world
    He keeps it in his trousers tightly curled
    It is a yard and a half and a foot in width
    And more when it is unfuuuuuuuuuuurrrled"
  • Greatest Hits Album: He's released two 2-CD compilation albums which together contained every song he's ever released on CD as well as live performances of his favorite. The first album was entitled The Fruity Bits of Ivor Biggun but included three alternate covers with cover art that represented the name: The Breast of Ivor Biggun, The Beast of Ivor Biggun, and The Wurst of Ivor Biggun. The second compilation was simply titled More Fruity Bits! The Rest of Ivor Biggun.
  • Hurricane of Euphemisms: "Hide the Sausage" is a compilation of euphemisms for penises and sex, as is "I Can Be The Hot Dog And You Can Be The Bun"
  • In the Style of: "Bras on 45" is performed in the style of the late 70's disco medleys popularized by Stars on 45, complete with parody snippets of the pop hits of the time.
  • Monster Mash: "I've Got a Monster" features verses from werewolves, Frankenstein's Monster, and Dracula as they describe their respective sexual kinks.
  • Toilet Humor: There's "I've Farted", which is all about a person proudly claiming their flatulence in various situations, "I Woke Up This Moanin'" which opens with the blues singer proclaiming that he realized he'd soiled the bed when he woke up, and then there's "Richard the Third (He's in the Business Now)" is about a man who falls into a toilet and has to swim his way through the effluvia (the title pronounces his name as "Richard the Toid"note .
