Ian Moore

Comedian Ian Moore occupies a unique position in British comedy. TV/Radio regular, best-selling author and headliner at London’s world famous Comedy Store, Ian lives in rural France and commutes back to the UK every week for work. At least, that’s how things have been.

What with ‘events’, that fragile way of life looks rockier by the day and has made Ian an unwitting, but witty, expert in UK and European visa, travel, trade agreements and UK-EU bickering. His sharp, entertaining punditry can be seen regularly on Dave’s satirical TV show Unspun, Channel 5’s topical Comedy Big Mouths, and TRT World’s weekly dissection of the news, Nexus.

Ian is also a regular on BBC 5Live’s Fighting Talk and BT Sport’s The Football’s On, and a sometime co-host and regular guest on TalkSport’s The Warm Up. 

As a much sought after comedian, compère and corporate awards host Ian has performed at corporate events ranging from twelve Harley Davidson executives in a hotel suite to hosting a live Q&A in front of 3,500 people at a packed-out Hammersmith Apollo. Following a sell-out run alongside Catherine Tate, Ian was selected to appear at the pinnacle of all comedy festivals – Montreal’s Just for Laughs. Alongside the likes of Jimmy Carr and Lee Mack, Ian performed in the sellout Britcom showcase and the Worldcom show at the festival’s finale.

The author of best-selling books, ‘A la Mod: My So-Called Tranquil Family Life in Rural France’, and the follow up, ‘C’est Modnifique!: Adventures of an English Grump in Rural France’, Ian is also a columnist for Living France.

Ian Moore also makes a mean chutney.


Le comédien humoriste Ian Moore occupe une position unique dans la comédie britannique. Il apparaît régulièrement à la télévision et à la radio Britannique, il est un auteur à succès et animateur régulier au ‘Comedy Store’, un club à renommée mondiale à Londres. Pourtant, Ian vit à la campagne française et se rend au Royaume-Uni chaque semaine pour le travail. Du moins, pour l’instant.

Grâce à Brexit, on le voit régulièrement dans l’émission télévisée satirique Unspun de Dave, dans Comédie Big Mouths, une émission d’actualité sur Channel 5, dans l’hebdomadaire de l’actualité de TRT World, Nexus et sur The Now Show de BBC Radio 4 où il a remporté de nombreuses critiques favorables pour ses apparitions.

Ian est également un habitué de Fighting Talk de BBC 5 Live et de The Football’s On de BT Sport, parfois co-animateur et un invité régulier de The Warm Up de TalkSport. Ian produit aussi un podcast bimensuel intitulé Monsieur So British.

Si ça ne suffisait pas, il est l’auteur de best-sellers, “À la Mod: My So-Called Tranquil Family Life in Rural France“, et de la suite, “C’est Modnifique!: Adventures of an English Grump in Rural France“.
