Pete Firman - Jiggery Pokery

Ian Stone: The Return of Stoney Baloney

Ian Stone: The Return of Stoney Baloney

Comedian Ian Stone proudly wears his ranking as one of ‘the top ten stand-ups in Britain’ today, and I have to say it is rightly deserved. Stone is a seasoned act and comedy writer, having penned gags for the likes of Omid Djalili, ITV1’s The Sketch Show and Alistair McGowan’s Big Impression...
