A regular on BBC 5Live’s Fighting Talk and BT Sport’s popular The Football’s On…, Ian is a much sought after comedian, compere and corporate awards host who has achieved great success on the London and National circuits and is a regular headliner and compere at London’s famous Comedy Store.
He is also the author of the hugely successful books, A la Mod: My So-Called Tranquil Family Life in Rural France and C’est Modnifique!: Adventures of an English Grump in Rural France.
Ian’s laconic observations on life, from the problems of using thewrong vocabulary in a German Pizza Hut to an almost pathological hatred of most forms of physical exertion, have proved hugely successful with live audiences all over the world from Australia to China, and the Phillipines to the Middle East. He hasn’t performed in South America, but feels no reason why they wouldn’t love him there too.
Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival where he appeared with Catherine Tate, Ian was one of only seven British comics selected to appear at the pinnacle of all comedy festivals – Montreal’s Just for Laughs. Alongside the likes of Jimmy Carr, Ian performed in the selloutBritcom showcase proving to be such a success he subsequently went on to headline the Worldcom show at the festival’s finale.
Ian was also, briefly, the warm up comic for the BBC’s Friday Night with Jonathon Ross show, until the Morrissey incident, of which the less said the better. Ian has headlined at The Reading and Leeds music festivals, but he is too well dressed to consider appearing at Glastonbury.
