Iain Stirling is a stand-up comedian and the current face of CBBC. He burst onto the comedy scene just over a year ago, whilst studying for a Law degree at Edinburgh University, and was later placed second in both the Paramount Funniest Student final and the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year final. Just one week after graduating, Iain found himself on a train down to London to begin presenting on CBBC.
Iain has played at some of the most established gigs in the country, including the Stand (Edinburgh and Glasgow), the Comedy Store (London and Manchester), and Highlight. He has supported Rhod Gilbert on tour and was dubbed one of Scotland’s hottest newcomers (The Scotsman), after his performance at Glasgow Old Fruit Market to over 750 people.
Iain currently presents alongside his trusty canine puppet sidekick, Hacker, doing over two hours of live continuity links every weekday afternoon. He has also developed and written for a number of other CBBC projects.
The List said "Hilariously grotesque"
Chortle said "He’s got an innate sense of timing, with perfect pace and phrasing to enliven the routine"
