Love Island’s Iain Stirling bringing his stand-up comedy tour to Hull

Comedian Iain Stirling, best known as the acclaimed voice of ITV2’s hit BAFTA-winning reality show Love Island, is embarking on his biggest tour to date that takes in Hull.

Iain’s rescheduled Failing Upwards tour arrives at Hull City Hall on Wednesday, October 27, following his appearances on our screens this summer with his debut sitcom, Buffering, as well as Love Island and CelebAbility.

Failing Upwards, a 71-date tour including a free performance for 1,000 NHS workers, will see Iain 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 the one time a man stole his shoes.

Iain recently created, wrote and starred in Buffering (ITV2), a six-part sitcom following Iain, a children’s TV presenter with an aversion to kids, and his friends who are all navigating an age where they’re too old for nightclubs but too poor for mortgages. Part of a generation who are told they must live the perfect life, these friends discover it’s not only okay but healthy to fail, over and over again.

Following the success of Love Island, for which Iain has provided the voiceover across seven series, the comedian appeared in series eight of Taskmaster (Dave) and hosted four series of CelebAbility (ITV2).
