Iain Stirling (Taskmaster, Love Island) has added a free matinee performance of his new stand-up show Failing Upwards at the Alexandra Palace Theatre on the 14th November 2021 for NHS workers, ahead of his 7.45pm show on the same date which is already on general sale.
The two performances form part of Iain’s rescheduled tour as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and will be filmed for his previously announced Amazon Prime Special, originally set to be taped in Edinburgh.

Iain Stirling said “I’m excited to announce I’ll be capturing a special free show at the Alexandra Palace Theatre to thank NHS heroes, whose hard work and dedication on the front line of Covid 19 to help save lives has been truly amazing, for my first Special with Amazon Prime”

Alexandra Palace is run by a charity for the benefit of everyone. It’s loved by many people: as a historic landmark, ice rink, legendary gig venue, exhibition centre, theatre, park with panoramic views and more. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic our income has fallen catastrophically and our survival is at risk. Your support can help: as a charity, every £1 we receive is reinvested back into the organisation and will help us get back on our feet.
