Iain Stirling is a stand-up comedian and the current face of CBBC. He burst onto the comedy scene whilst studying for a Law degree at Edinburgh University, being placed second in both the Paramount Funniest Student final (2009), and the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year final (2009). 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'
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), The Glee and The Brighton Komedia, and was dubbed one of Scotland’s “hottest newcomers” (The Scotsman), after his performance at Glasgow Old Fruit Market to over 750 people. He has supported Russell Kane and Rhod Gilbert on tour and last year appeared in The Comedy Zone, the most prestigious new act showcase at the Edinburgh Festival. He has also performed on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3).
