Cringe and unfunny
curtisratcliff28 May 2022
This was the worst stand up ive ever witnessed, i gave it 15 minutes before i couldn't take anymore, this fella is so unfunny i sort of felt sorry for him, stick to the voice overs lad you are a far cry away from a comedian, you have utterly embarrassed yourself here.

Hilarious! A must watch
DylanS9629 May 2022
Watching this special makes me really wish I was one of the lucky audience members there. Iain's comedy timing and engagement with the crowd (Richard is a highlight) shows him to be one of the most natural and quick witted comics of this time. Most will know him as the voice of Love Island, but his ability to unpick life outside the villa in such a laugh-out-loud and relatable way pushes him to new heights. Well written with some real heart warming moments that leaves you with sore cheeks from laughing, but also warm and fuzzy on the inside. A must watch.

Funny from start to finish!

I laughed so hard all the way through! Got tickets to one of his shows and crying with laughter! Watching it back did the same thing. Richard was also a highlight! Am looking forward to his next tour!

Absolutely brilliant

Saw it live and loved it, so funny and relevant for everyone and especially millennials. Rewatched it on Amazon Prime and had a great time again, I can only recommend!, you won't waste your time, enjoy!

Not funny and just awkward
hmfrpnkhbb1 June 2022
I was so looking forward to watching this as I had to give away live tickets for Edinburgh earlier this year. However, I'm so glad I didn't make the trip to Edinburgh for this. I've enjoyed Iain Stirling's stand up over the years, but I feel he now thinks he's a bigger star than he is. It's like "fame" has gone to his head and now can't relate to be funny to his core audience. Anyway, just a bit disappointing and a struggle to watch.

Hilarious! Well worth a watch

There have been some quality specials on prime recently, but this one has to be up there as one of the best. If you're a fan of easy to watch comedy and want to belly laugh for an hour, then this is a must watch! Hopefully have more from him soon.
