Described as 'one of the best joke writers on the circuit' (GQ), Iain Stirling is a stand-up comedian and BAFTA-nominated presenter.
A well-known face on television, Iain is also the recognisable, cheeky voice of Love Island (ITV2) which is now in its second series, adding to a list of multiple credits including: performing on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and Drunk History (Comedy Central), as well as hosting his own Scottish BAFTA nominated (best children’s show) panel show The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), joining the panel on Fake Reaction and Safe Word (ITV2) and Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC Three), and is currently developing a sitcom for BBC Three with Daniel Sloss.
A regular voice on the radio too, Iain has made appearances on shows including The Now Show, Dilemma (Radio 4), The Josh Widdicombe Show (XFM) and recorded a Radio One takeover.
Iain burst onto the comedy scene whilst studying for a Law degree at Edinburgh University, reaching the finals of both the Paramount Funniest Student competition (2009), and the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year competition (2009) and has since performed four consecutive sold out and acclaimed shows, Happy To Be The Clown? (2012), Iain Stirling At Home (2013) and Everything (2014), Touchy Feely (2015) at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Just one week after graduating, Iain found himself on a train down to London to begin presenting on CBBC and just two years later he received a BAFTA nomination for Best Children’s Presenter (2011) which was followed last year with another nomination in this category. A driving force behind the concept of comedy panel show The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Iain co-wrote and hosted two series.
Iain has written for, developed and presented a number of other CBBC projects, including: Help! My Supply Teacher Is Magic, 12 Again and All Over the Place. His love of football has led him to commentate for CBBC’s Red Button Coverage of the World Cup and he has also appeared on CBBC’s Match of the Day Kickabout, Hawksbee and Jacobs (talkSPORT) and Football Tonight (BT Sport) alongside Rio Ferdinand.
