Iona Stewart-Richardson

Iona's lust for life and idiot observations are the narrative of her stand-up content (and low self-esteem). As a teenager, she pulled off two appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe - and hasn’t been the same since.

Her Shakespeare inspired satirical stunt as Mrs Thatcher - spouting the words of Lady M before getting smoke blown up her arse (literally) opened her up to a new career.

She is a highly energetic (and totally impartial) journalist - but fantasizes frequently about being the Speaker of the House of Commons.


Iona is nteresting, funny and destined for the top....Steve Williams, Comedian, writer

Iona has several strings to her performance to keep an eye on - Nick Steel, Director of Bath Comedy Festival


Iona is impulsive, well-spoken and 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
