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.
Ian 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 the wrong 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 Philippines 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 sell-out Britcom showcase proving to be such a success he subsequently went on to headline the Worldcom show at the festival’s finale.
Ian has headlined at The Reading and Leeds music festivals, but he is too well dressed to consider appearing at Glastonbury. Ian has performed to a large number of corporate audiences ranging from 12 people in a hotel suite (Harley Davidson) to thousands of people at the Excel Arena, or on the ‘corporate strip’ of Park Lane, and in top venues overseas.
His client list is broad, from multinationals such as McDonald’s, Hilton, Sony and VW to more low-key, small company affairs and a barn-storming set at the National Pig Awards!
