Iain Stirling to tape an Amazon Prime special

Failing Upwards tour to be recorded in his Edinburgh hometown

Iain Stirling is to become the next British stand-up to record an Amazon comedy special.

The voice of Love Island will tape a version of his forthcoming tour show Failing Upwards in his home town of Edinburgh in March.

The hour-long special will then be available on Amazon Prime Video in 200 countries later in the year.

He follows in the footsteps of  Chris RamseyEd Gamble, Flo and Joan and Paul Chowdhry – all of whom have recorded specials for the streaming giant this year. All the comics are also represented by major comedy agent Avalon.

Stirling will tape his show over two performances at Edinburgh King’s Theatre on March 29  at 5pm and 7.30pm. It will cover ‘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’.

LA PRINCESA DE WOKING

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
