Ian Sainsbury

After decades of perfecting his comedy keyboard stylings, Ian Sainsbury finally exploded onto the UK comedy circuit in early 2002 where he is already being tipped as "the next big thing" with his unique brand of musical comedy.

In this short space of time Ian has leapt up the comedy ladder and is already playing at all the top London clubs including The Comedy Store, Bearcat, Jongleurs, Ha Bloody Ha, Red Rose, Hampstead Comedy Club, Brixton Comedy Club and Downstairs at the Kings Head. Ian is also delighting audiences around the rest of the UK, performing at such prestigious clubs as Hyena Café in Newcastle, Buzz Club in Manchester and The Laughterhouse in Liverpool

Although relatively new to the comedy circuit, Ian has been performing as a professional musician all over the world for many years and this extensive experience of performing in front of live audiences has resulted in a wonderfully relaxed and amiable style of delivery on the comedy stage.

Ian has dabbled in the comedy arena once before but as a writer rather than a performer. He first cut his comedy teeth (?) writing a bizarre running gag for LWT's HALE & PACE in 1990. The episode containing his sketches was entered into the Golden Rose of Montreux television festival where it failed to win anything. A couple of year's ago Ian received a cheque for £0.52p representing his share of Australasian royalties from the programme. It may well have been this taste of fame and fortune that has lured him back to the world of comedy.
