FINALIST - Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian Of The Year 2014
SEMI-FINALIST - BBC Radio New Comedy Award 2016 and 2014
Purveyor of "inventive, cliche-phobic comedy that makes a strong impression for its creativity...the hit rate is high for a comedian who doesn?t seek sanctuary in the safety of the familiar.? Steve Bennett, Chortle

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.
