Stand Up


Comedian, Author, Presenter, Corporate Speaker, Columnist

Soon to appear on Dave’s new satirical comedy show Unspun, Ian is already a regular on BBC 5Live’s Fighting Talk and BT Sport’s The Football’s On. He’s also sometime co-host and regular guest on TalkSport’s The Warm Up as well as a much sought after comedian, compère and trusted corporate awards host.

Ian has achieved great success on the London and National circuits and is a regular headliner at London’s famous Comedy Store. He is also the author of the best-selling books, ‘A la Mod: My So-Called Tranquil Family Life in Rural France’, and the follow up, ‘C’est Modnifique!: Adventures of an English Grump in Rural France’.

Ian’s laconic observations on life, and particular way of dressing have proved hugely successful with live audiences all over the world from Australia to China, and the Philippines to the Middle East. He hasn’t performed in South America, but feels no reason why they wouldn’t love him there too.

Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival where he appeared with Catherine Tate, Ian was one of only seven British comics selected to appear at the pinnacle of all comedy festivals – Montreal’s Just for Laughs. Alongside the likes of Jimmy Carr, Lee Mack and Milton Jones, Ian performed in the sellout Britcom showcase proving to be such a success he subsequently went on to headline the Worldcom show at the festival’s finale.

Ian was also, briefly, the warm up comic for the BBC’s ‘Friday Night with Jonathan Ross’ show, until the Morrissey incident, of which the less said the better. He has headlined at The Reading and Leeds music festivals, but is too well dressed to consider appearing at Glastonbury.

Ian Moore also makes a mean chutney.
