Stuart sparkles with the effortless charisma and quick-fire timing he honed over a misspent youth as a street-performer. Nowadays he is internationally recognised for original, striking stand-up comedy; his last three solo shows making him an “expert standup” (Sunday Times), and a “consistent fringe must-see” (Broadway Baby).
He is equally sought after as a comedian and compere, and has been repeat-booked at corporate events including British Telecom, Bank of America and Citigroup. He also won the admiration of mums and fellow sci-fi geeks as host of CBBC’s “Mission 2110”. TV warm-up credits include “Miranda”, “Coming Of Age”, “Wall of Fame”, “The Stephen K Amos Show” and many more.
