Stand Up


Comedian, Author, Columnist, Corporate Speaker, Blogger, Podcaster and Chutney Maker

Comedian Ian Moore occupies a unique position in British comedy.

TV/Radio regular, best-selling author and headliner at London’s world famous Comedy Store, Ian lives in rural France and commutes back to the UK every week for work. At least, that’s how things have been.

What with ‘events’, that fragile way of life looks rockier by the day and has made Ian an unwitting, but witty, expert in UK and European visa, travel, trade agreements and UK-EU bickering. His sharp, entertaining punditry can be seen regularly on Dave’s satirical TV show Unspun, Channel 5’s topical Comedy Big Mouths, TRT World’s weekly dissection of the news, Nexus. Ian won many plaudits for his performance in the last series of BBC Radio 4’s long-running The Now Show.

Ian is also a regular on BBC 5Live’s Fighting Talk and BT Sport’s The Football’s On, a sometime co-host and regular guest on TalkSport’s The Warm Up and has his own fortnightly podcast called Monsieur So British.

As a much sought after comedian, compère and corporate awards host Ian has performed at corporate events ranging from twelve Harley Davidson executives in a hotel suite to hosting a live Q&A in front of 3,500 people at a packed-out Hammersmith Apollo. Following a sell-out run alongside Catherine Tate, Ian was selected to appear atthe pinnacle of all comedy festivals – Montreal’s Just for Laughs. Alongside the likes of Jimmy Carr and Lee Mack, Ian performed in the sellout Britcom showcase and the Worldcom show at the festival’s finale.

The author of 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 has also published his first fiction book this year, a thriller called ‘Playing The Martyr’. Another book is scheduled for release in 2020.

Ian Moore also makes mean chutneys and jams.
