Comedian in Newbury, United Kingdom

I'm a huge fan of laughter, pursuing this mainly as a Stand-Up Comedian. I also though run 'Laughter Yoga' sessions, MC events, and am an after-dinner speaker.
I run the Ethos Comedy evenings in Newbury

Ian Macdonald has been gigging since he made 400 vicars laugh (at the same time!) and realized that Stand Up Comedy was the mid-life crisis he was searching for. Delivering his own brand of cheerful incredulity, he has been described 'warm,' 'full of heart' and 'very very funny.'

" a superb compere, setting up the atmosphere and expectation perfectly" Tony Vino

"Clean, clever and full of heart, Ian's comedy runs the full gamut from personal to political" Ace Space, Newbury

"very very funny" John Ryan

"a fantastic, warm presence and very very funny material" Fitzroy Club, Primrose Hill

I've been gigging since early 2014, and around 150 performances to date. I'm active on the 'open circuit' but enjoying an increasing number of longer and paid slots. (Video link below the photo).

* Semi finalist in the 'Laughing Horse' national New Act competition 2015
