“Voiceover king Iain Stirling has become a cult star for his tongue-in-cheeks quips and commentar” – Joanna Crawley, Daily Mail
BAFTA-winning comedian Iain Stirling is best known as the brilliantly funny voice of the hit reality show Love Island (Virgin Media), which is now in its third series. Following his success on Love Island, he took on the role of host for ITV2’s new physical comedy entertainment show, CelebAbility, adding to an extensive list of television credits, including Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and Drunk History (both Comedy Central) plus an array of panel shows, such as Virtually Famous (E4), Fake Reaction and Safe Word (both ITV2).
A driving force behind the concept of comedy panel show The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Iain has co-written and hosted four series which saw him win 2017’s Children’s BAFTA Best Presenter Award (2017) and following three nominations scoop 2016’s BAFTA Scotland’s Best Programme Award. Celebrity guest panellists on the show include Romesh Ranganathan, Joel Dommett and Susan Calman.
Beginning to make a name for himself internationally, Iain performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival earlier this year. An Edinburgh Festival Fringe favourite, Iain has performed six sold-out and critically-acclaimed shows: U OK HUN X (2017), Onwards!(2016), Touchy Feely (2015), Everything (2014), Iain Stirling At Home (2013) and Happy To Be The Clown? (2012).
