List of appearancesEdit


Stone began his career as a stand-up comedian in 1991, after being persuaded to get on stage by his girlfriend. He first performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1996, in a tour controversially called, A Little Piece of Kike. The organisers forced Stone to asterisk the word, "Kike," as it is considered racist. Stone commented about the term at the time saying, "I saw a description of it. ‘It said low-class, ill-mannered Jew,’ and I thought, ‘That's me!’"

Stone later appeared on several television shows, including The 11 O'Clock Show, The Late Edition, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Mock the Week. He also interviewed fellow Jewish comedian Jackie Mason on BBC Radio 4's arts programme Front Row.

Highlights of Stone's stand-up career have included compering the main theatre at the Cape Town Comedy Festival in 2003, performing in the final transatlantic crossing of The QE2, and being the first British stand-up comedian to perform in Moscow.

He regularly appears at The Comedy Store in London, including topical Tuesday night show The Cutting Edge.

An avid Arsenal fan, Ian co-hosts the It's Up For Grabs Now podcast, which takes a light-hearted discussion on goings on at the club.
