Roycey is an avid fundraiser and in 2013 he raised (by taking on challenges) and helped raise hosting charity events over 200k for charities close to his heart - mainly The NSPCC. Although Roycey can often be found helping out the smaller less public known charities for a variety of causes.
Roycey plans even more spontaneous charity events and challenges and has now dedicated his new YouTube channel to focus on #RoyceysAnytimeChallenge which allows his followers on Twitter and his FB page to "Rent out Roycey" for their charity by asking him to do ANY challenge to raise funds for any charity or individual.

Roycey recently made a cameo appearance in a One Direction video where he can be seen keeping the boys smiling during their hectic schedule!
Roycey was the MC for One Direction star Niall Horan's Charity Football match in May 2014. Stars on the teams included fellow bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Liam Payne. Olly Murs, John Bishop and Piers Morgan were some of the other big name supporters. The even raised over 300K.
Roycey started his career in stand up comedy over 24 years ago and today he is without question, one of the most exciting unscripted improv comedians in the country. With a talent to just go with with what ever is in front of him without a long script of gags makes Roycey so unique and so in demand.
The last few years have been a very exciting time for Roycey. He has been on The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent and Piers Morgans Life Stories since day one, not just as "The Warm Up Man" but as the act that keeps the show alive during many breaks and set changes, he has carved a reputation as being the country's leading comedy warm up man for which he is very proud of. His Youtube Vlogs and #RoyceyAnyTimeChallenges are a must watch when he is not warming up the biggest shows on British television as they are varied and normally spur of the momment.
His comedy has been judged by the very audiences that laugh hysterically at his antics with a following on twitter which now exceeds 75k.
Ian has also supported One Direction in both New York and London holding together the 1D fan day and the world wide press launch of their South American Stadium tour.
Ian has also been privileged to support both Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams and has had the joy of entertaining thousands in the countries biggest arenas, including The O2, Wembley Arena, The Manchester MEN, The Royal Albert Hall and many other major venues around the country, The proudest moment of Ian's 25 year carer happened in January of 2015 when he was invited to atend The National Television Awards and go up with his XF family to receive "The best talent show award" for his beloved X Factor. He still maybe smiling!
2014 saw Roycey find a new lease of life. He has turned many a corner and climbed many a mountain and his new found hunger, desire and vigour to stand in front of camera rather than behind it has been noticed by many. He now is regularly seen on popular shows including ITV's This Morning and has a regular spot reviewing the daily newspapers in his own unique fashion on Sky News Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes.
He has cycled from Edinbourgh to London single handedly, Jumped out of a plance, Lived as a partent of T1D, spent 24 hours in wheelchair to support ~Help For Heros" running up to The Invictus Games, cycled for 39 hours straight to Paris from London following the shocking events,in Paris in early 2015, helped some brave homeles people, shaved his legs and even done a bit of art amoungst many other things, he is to continue to push himself to new limits during 2105 and find new ways to give back to life through his love of doing slightly insane things!
Roycey's commitment to the NSPCC, Help for heros and Centrepoint and many other charities remains strong and will continue in 2015.
Ian is in the process of writing a book of a life in warm up and the charity challenges he has conqured over the last two years, although with an attention span of a gnat this may take longer than his over active mind tells him! Ian feels very sorry for the person who has to check the spelling!
Watching Roycey is more of a life experiance than an hour laughing - if you don't believe it, then never ever use your mobile phone or get your handbag out while he has a microphone in his hand!
