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, teach comedy, run laughter and happiness workshops. and do after-dinner speaking.
SHORT BIO PIECE:
Ian Macdonald has been gigging since he made 400 vicars laugh (at the same time!) and realised that Stand Up Comedy was the mid-life crisis he was searching for. Delivering his own brand of cheerful incredulity, he has been described as '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" Ace Space
“Ian was masterful and captured his audience” Clive Newlin, Blandford Forum Comedy Exchange
"very very funny" John Ryan
"a fantastic, warm presence and very very funny material" Fitzroy Club, Primrose Hill
"Our headliner, Ian Macdonald, delivered a joyous, clean, well-crafted routine full of big laughs" Coffee n' Comedy
I've been gigging since early 2014, with over 200 performances to date. I'm active on the 'open circuit' but enjoying an increasing number of longer and paid slots.
