"He looks and sounds very good indeed" Time Out
"A masterful exponent of self-mocking Jewish humour" The Times
Ranked amongst the top ten stand-ups in Britain by The Independent, Ian Stone is one of the most talented topical acts and comperes on the circuit. Edgy and provocative, with an easy-going manner and self-depreciating style, Ian is at great ease bantering with an audience. He's also a member of the Comedy Store's critically acclaimed 'Cutting Edge' team.
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 most recently Afghanistan. Also, he was the first British stand-up to perform in Moscow.
"…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's many television appearances include two shows of Mock The Week (BBC 2), The World Stands Up (Paramount Comedy 2005) The Comedy Store (Ch5 - 3 appearances, most recent in 2005), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC 2), The Stand-Up Show (BBC 1), Saturday Live (ITV), Live at Jongleurs (ITV) & The 11 O'clock Show (CH4). He also appeared in two series of The Katy Brand Show for ITV2 and had a small part in Ben Miller’s film Huge to be released in April 2010.
On radio, Ian was a regular guest on The Gabby Logan Programme and continues to appear on Fighting Talk (for Radio 5 Live). On Radio 4, he has appeared twice on 'Four at the Store' (BBC Radio 4) and recently Political Animal. He’s co-written a sitcom pilot for Radio Two called The Sharp End starring Alistair McGowan and Michelle Gomez which was recorded in 2009. It’s being broadcast on 5th June 2010. He’s currently waiting on an answer as to whether it’s been commissioned for a series. He’s also lined up to present a special Radio Five documentary from Afghanistan later this year.
Ian is currently to be heard on the Alan Davies Arsenal podcast “It’s Up For Grabs Now’. This show has been a huge success (slightly more than the team unfortunately), at present number thirteen in the national podcast charts and currently the top rated sports podcast in the country. During the World Cup, Ian will be part of the team for The Armchair World Cup, six special shows on Radio 5 Live.
Ian writes for The Omid Djalili show on BBC1 and has written gags for The Sketch Show on ITV1 and Alistair McGowan's Big Impression (BBC 1). He is currently busy developing several original ideas for television.
In 2006 Ian returned to the Edinburgh Festival with a new solo show, 'Embrace the Chaos'. Ian received rave reviews, including a 5 star review from The Herald. He went back in 2007 with a brand new show, Healthy Disrespect and garnered five four star reviews. In 2008, his show “Where’s The Down” got a four star review from The Times.
