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's a member of the Comedy Store's critically acclaimed 'Cutting Edge' team. Ian also received a nomination in 2012 for the BEST SHOW at the Leicester Comedy Festival Awards.
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.
"Seriously funny" The Guardian
"…like a cross between Tony Hancock and Frankie Howerd. Stone is probably better than we deserve. Ultimately, it is the sheer quantity of funny material that really impresses" The List

Ian did a great job at the Ealing Council awards do. We’d definitely use him again

Ian was fantastic at our Christmas party and we used him again the following year. We were delighted with his performance and we’d have no hesitation in using him for any number of events

We saw Ian at a comedy club in London and decided to book him for our annual dinner in Dudley. He was so good, we booked him for another show in London and he was great there as well.

Ian recently performed at my daughter’s 21st in a marquee. I was a little apprehensive as we had no warm up act and around 50 boisterous twenty one year olds, twenty forty somethings and a few over eighties. However, Ian managed to capture every one of them and his spontaneous banter with the audience was hilarious. I have been to see Ian a number of times and what I like about him is that his material changes every time and is very topical

- How long is the act?Anywhere from twenty to forty five minutes
