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

SHORT BIO PIECE:
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.'

ABOUT:
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).
