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.
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, with nearly 200 performances to date. I'm active on the 'open circuit' but enjoying an increasing number of longer and paid slots. .
