"Ranked amongst the top ten stand-ups in Britain by The Independent, Ian Stone is one of the most talented topical acts and comperes in the country. Edgy and provocative, with an easy-going manner and self-depreciating style, Ian is at great ease bantering with an audience.  He received a nomination in 2012 for the BEST SHOW at the Leicester Comedy Festival. His Edinburgh festival show in 2022 Righter of Wrongs played to sold out audiences for the entire run and his 2023 show Ian Stone Will Make it Better won a Spirit of the Fringe award. He'll be back in Edinburgh in 2024 with a brand new show Ian Stone is Keeping it Together prior to taking it out on his first national tour.
He has performed all over the world including Comedy Festivals in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, South Africa, Holland, France, Ireland and Germany. He’s entertained the troops in Kuwait, Bosnia,Kosovo, Cyprus and Afghanistan. He was the first British stand-up to perform in Moscow and the first performer to appear for The Comedy Store in Mumbai".
