It was announced today, 4th June 2018, that Iain Stirling’s first book Not Ready To Adult Yet will be published through HarperCollins on the 23rd August. Looking back at his journey to adulthood, he explores why millennials are the way they are and whether that makes us self-obsessed, work-shy, mollycoddled, egomaniacs; or just a misunderstood generation with a crippling fear of failure. A weekly podcast hosted by Iain chatting around themes of the book with friends, fellow comics and his Mum launches later this week.
The news arrives ahead of Iain returning to voice the fourth series of ITV2’s smash-hit BAFTA-winning Love Island, kick-starting tonight at 9pm, alongside hosting a second series of physical comedy entertainment show CelebAbility which launches on the 20th June at 10pm.
Following recording in Mallorca, Iain is set to head home to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to present three special nights of Iain (Stirling) Does Jokes (With Pals) at the EICC. From the 22nd – 24th August at 10pm, the showcase will feature thirty of the festival’s best comedians. He’ll then hit the road for the second, and final, tour extension of his critically-acclaimed stand-up hour U Ok Hun?x, where he explores the pressures stemming from a world of instant gratification. After selling out the entire Edinburgh Fringe run in advance of it opening with this show last year, Iain has further lengthened the 51-date tour with 24 shows from 7th September to the 2nd December.
Iain’s intuitive razor-sharp humour has seen him sell out 6 shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to date and amass numerous television credits, with recent appearances including: providing the live voiceover on BAFTA (BBC One), The Jonathan Ross Show (ITV), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), Saturday Kitchen (BBC One), Stand Up Central With Rob Delaney (Comedy Central) and Unspun With Matt Forde (Dave).
Tickets for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and tour extension are available through Iain’s website
