The British currency may be having a hard time of it, but life couldn’t be better now for Iain Stirling, the Scottish comedian who is dating Ireland’s Laura Whitmore. He takes his new ‘Greatest Hits’ show to Vicar St. in November, on the back of his success as narrator on Love Island.
Around this time last year, I was being treated to a lovely lunch by the charming Laura Whitmore in New York. Her boyfriend Iain Stirling, meanwhile, was around the corner stuck inside their Airbnb rental, beavering away on his recently released first book, Not Ready To Adult Yet. So, it wasn’t until we were back on this side of the Atlantic that we finally got to chat.
The Scottish comedian had to put his shoulder to the wheel to meet the publisher’s tight deadline back in May.
“I had to have it finished before I went to do Love Island, because I was going to be in Spain for two months and it would’ve been too difficult to do any work once I was out there,” the 30-year-old explains.“It happened quickly – off the back of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, a few book people liked some of the ideas I was dealing with in the show. It was pretty quick.”
