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 22nd November 2020 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. Free tickets for Iain’s postponed Edinburgh King’s Theatre gigs at 5pm and 7.30pm on the 28th March 2021 are also available for NHS staff.
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 a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
