You Must Be Stoking Edinburgh Preview Part 1 line up…
You may have seen topical comedian & writer Ian Stone on Mock The Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Late Edition, or heard him on BBC Five Live’s Fighting Talk. But like all great stand-ups, he’s best experienced live.
Ranked amongst the top ten stand-ups in Britain by The Independent, Ian is also a member of the Comedy Store’s critically acclaimed Cutting Edge team.
Ian has performed all over the world including Comedy Festivals in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, South Africa, Holland, France, Ireland and Germany He has also performed on tour with Omid Djalili, Ardal O’Hanlon and Alan Davies. He has headlined gigs in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the Middle East, performed on the final transatlantic crossing of The QE2, entertained troops in Kuwait and Bosnia and played various clubs in New York.
“…like a cross between Tony Hancock and Frankie Howard. Stone is probably better than we deserve. Ultimately, it is the sheer quantity of funny material that really impresses”. The List

“Clearly a huge talent. Someone you can expect to hear a lot more of.” –
Andy Zaltzman is one of the UK’s finest satirists, and a veteran of the Edinburgh Festival since 1999 when he was finalist in the So You Think You’re Funny competition along with Josie Long, Russell Howard and David O’Doherty. He’s written for Bremner, Bird and Fortune, and is the star of Radio 4’s Political Animal, as well as the critically acclaimed podcast The Bugle with his long-term colleague (and star of The Daily Show) John Oliver.
“This is satire at its best… His excellent material demands to be seen” – Jason Hall, Edinburgh Evening News ****
