Ian Lane

IAN LANE  is an accessibly surreal performer whose act has been summarised by One4Review as “friendly absurdism, delivered in a recogniseable stand-up style”. His set draws upon absurdist autobiography, obtuse one-liners and perturbing props, all delivered in a manner once described as “like an evil Joel Dommett” (Luke Benson). A London-based comic, he has reached the final of the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian Of The Year competition, twice made the semi-finals of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award (as broadcast on BBC Radio 2, Radio 4 and Radio 4Extra), won/survived numerous gong shows (‘King Gong; Beat The Frog; Up The Creek’s The Blackout), and performed his debut hour “ALOOF!” at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival to critical acclaim, as well as at the Leicester, Brighton and VAULT festivals.
