@ Arch Stanton - I DID realise he was this sort of height! It's not exactly commonplace that they stand up on 'Have I Got News For You' but it has happened!
I miss the old ones with Angus Deayton in the chair. It was far funnier; I don't really watch it much nowadays...
Ian gets 5ft6.

Damn, I didnt even read the description and could tell he was a Brit just based on his goofy leg position lol

As mentioned above, he does resemble Elmer Fudd. Very clever and witty man though.
5'5" from me .
Editor Rob: Piers had a couple of jibes at Hislop over his height...to be fair, Piers seems a little bit Heightist.

Fantastic! What a brilliant idea! I love this guy - he's so witty! I've been watching Ian in 'Have I Got News for You' since the 90's! He looks a bit like a funny little gnome when he laughs!
It must be a riot writing 'Private Eye' as well!
I know he's not very tall so 5ft6 sounds fine for him!

Yes, I thought he might be short, but didn't quite realize this short!
