22nd January 2021 – BAFTA-winning comedian Iain Stirling (Love Island, Taskmaster) has rescheduled the Spring leg of his Failing Upwards stand-up tour across Autumn 2021 and Spring 2022 as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The 71-date tour is now set to begin on the 14th September 2021 with three dates in Bristol and to culminate on the 24th April 2022 at Dublin’s Vicar Street. Two shows including a free performance for NHS workers will be recorded for Iain’s previously announced Amazon Prime Video Special at the Alexandra Palace Theatre on the 14th November 2021.
Iain Stirling said: “I’m absolutely gutted to be moving my tour dates again but sadly with the ongoing pandemic it feels like the best thing to do. I can’t wait to see some of you later this year and in Spring ‘22. For now, please stay safe and sane.”
Tickets for Iain’s rescheduled tour dates are available at 10am today at iaindoesjokes.com
Iain’s biggest stand-up tour to date with brand-new show Failing Upwards will see him explore topics including his inability to function in the most basic of public settings, social media’s constant pressure to “live your best life” and that one time a man stole his shoes.
Iain is best known as the acclaimed voice of the hit BAFTA-winning reality show Love Island (ITV2) spanning six series. Following his success on Love Island, Iain has appeared in series eight of Taskmaster (Dave) and hosted four series of CelebAbility (ITV2).

Iain co-wrote and hosted six series of the comedy panel show The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC) which saw him win 2018’s RTS Scotland’s On-Screen Personality and 2017’s Children’s BAFTA Best Presenter Award (2017).
An Edinburgh Festival Fringe favourite, Iain has performed five sold-out and critically acclaimed shows, including U OK Hun? X (2017) which sold out the entire Edinburgh Fringe run in advance.
He released his first book about millennials, Not F*cking Ready To Adult, through HarperCollins in May 2018, along with a companion podcast of the same name.
