Comedian Iain Stirling is best known as the brilliantly funny voice of the BAFTA-award winning smash hit Love Island. Despite his many accolades, and his mum telling him he's her `special little soldier' every day, Iain still struggles with everyday adult life. What a textbook millennial.

Looking back at his journey to adulthood, Iain explores why millennials are the way they are - and whether that makes us self-obsessed, work-shy, mollycoddled, egomaniacs; or just a misunderstood generation with a crippling fear of failure.

Millennials have been celebrated and scorned; they're the envy, fascination and disgrace of the world. But is there more to this #selfie and avocado-obsessed generation that can't grow up than meets the eye?

Throughout life millennials have been taught that they are perfect and should live a perfect life. They've been told, whatever happens, don't fuck up. And then they enter the real world. And failure quickly rears its ugly head. A head millennials weren't warned about and definitely aren't ready for.

Iain knows a lot about fucking up. And he's ready to share.

Funny, provocative and full of his trademark razor-sharp wit, this is Iain's guide to what life is really like for millennials and how they can navigate it better.

Reviews of Iain's current tour U OK HUN?:

'At best the Edinburgh native is an unhinged free-form anecdotist - his closing tale of a disastrous CBBC gig is a belter' - The Mail on Sunday
