Iain Stirling is an Edinburgh-born stand up comedian with a charmingly childish look in his eye and an aptitude for incorporating personal elements into his often quite silly anecdotal stand up style. Stirling was a finalist in the Chortle Student Comedian Of The Year competition in 2009 and has since gone on to work as a CBBC presenter and actor, as well as appearing on Russell Howard’s Good News and Sweat the Small Stuff.
I asked Iain these seven questions to learn a little more…
1) Do you care about the Royal family?
Not particularly, perplexed if anything. Should people still wear crowns in 2015? Doesn’t feel right.
2) How many wrongs make a right?
3) Which comedians do you most enjoy gigging with?
Tom Webb, Joe Lycett, Steve Bugeja, Mark Smith, Liam Williams, Carl Donnelly, Joel Dommett, Romesh Ranganathan and everyone at The Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh!
4) Do your parents take your comedy career seriously?
I have a law degree, I think that gives you a fair idea of their stance on the matter.
5) Something that makes you feel out of place?
Posh clothes shops.
6) Ever been responsible for the death of a pet?
7) Can people trust you?
People yes, pets no.
