Ian is a Bristol born comedian.
Ian graduated from Bath Spa University in 2006 with a BA(hons) in performing arts and has been performing ever since, he started doing stand-up in 2008 after being roped into it and finding a real knack for it. Ian has performed stand up for the likes of Lou Cox Presents and Mirth Control to mention just two of the companies he’s performed for.
Ian has also worked as a comedy writer and actor as well, past credits include work for News From Nowhere with award winning director Tim Crouch on his Shakespeare inspired comedy ‘I, Peaseblossom’, TV work with Halo Productions and numerous theatre productions.
One of Ian’s live projects is his one man show ‘One Man and His Dog… Oh, and His Girlfriend As Well’ a stand-up style one person character driven show which Ian toured from Act Provocateur’s Solo Festival in London to his adopted home town of Bath.
Along with stand up in the West and London Ian is usually penning new projects which he performs in and around fringe venues. Sparking creatively like a dodgy toaster with a fork in it!
‘Ian Pope – So wrong it’s right!! He’s guaranteed to cause face and belly ache!’ – Lou Cox
‘The humour is sophisticated and presented in a variety of forms: verbal and visual humour, farce, even a touch of slapstick – all deftly handled... mature and perceptive but never fails to make us laugh’ – Douglas Watkinson
‘My god, how twisted is your mind, Mr Pope!... very funny, crazy, anarchic, surreal’ – Tim Crouch
