Over 40 dates, including performances at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and hometown Edinburgh King’s Theatre, Iain is set to explore topics including his inability to function in the most basic of public settings, social media’s constant pressure to “live your best life” and that one time a man stole his shoes.

He released his first book about millennials, Not F*cking Ready To Adult, through HarperCollins in May 2018, with the paperback currently available.
