Iain Stirling has announced his biggest nationwide tour to date.

The Taskmaster and CelebAbility star will perform Failing Upwards from 21st February to 22nd May 2020.

The news has been announced as TV ratings measurement company BARB reports nearly 6 million consolidated viewers watched the launch episode of the fifth series of Love Island earlier this month, which Stirling provides the voiceover on.

The Failing Upwards tour will include over forty dates, including performances at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall and his hometown Edinburgh's King's Theatre.

It follows on from his last show U Ok Hun? X, which sold out the entire Edinburgh Festival Fringe in advance of it opening, and saw the subsequent national tour twice extended.

Talking about the themes of his new show, his promoters say: "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."

Ahead of the tour, Iain will test new material at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe from 5th-17th August at the Gilded Balloon.
