Iona Stewart-Richardson

After a month Iona managed to squeeze one smile out of the notorious clown master, Phillippe Gaulier - and she hasn’t looked back since. All the way from sleepy Norfolk to living all over London - Iona’s lust for life and ‘idiot’ observations thus far - are the narrative of her stand-up content (and low self-esteem).

Her Shakespeare- inspired satirical stunt as Mrs Thatcher - and spouting the words of Lady M before getting smoke blown up her arse (literally) - opened her up to a new career possibility. She now works as a highly energetic (and totally impartial) journalist - but fantasizes frequently about being the Speaker of the House of Commons...As a teenager, she pulled off two appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe - and hasn’t been the same since.

Reviews
"Interesting, funny and destined for the top." - Steve Williams, Comedian, writer

"Iona has several strings to her performance bow, the right combination of which will surely see her arrows hitting target. It will be interesting to see what direction her act takes as she further hones her skills. One to keep an eye on." - Nick Steel, Director of Bath Comedy Festival

“Iona is impulsive, well-spoken and simply a pocket rocket. She has a surprisingly fierce, feisty spirit - accompanied by a fast-paced rhythm. Iona is effortlessly charming and undoubtedly different. She’s destined for the stage.”- Geoff Whiting, Comedian and Founder of Mirth Control Comedy
