Stuart Goldsmith – Extra Life

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.

Time Out

Stu did a brilliant job of entertaining guests at our Conference, tailoring his jokes perfectly to suit the audience. He was consistently funny for the entire show; a superb choice of comedian.

Warren Alexander, CEO Charity Retail Association

Possibly the bravest, and certainly one of the best debut shows I’ve ever seen

Kate Copstick, Scotsman

A fine joke-smith

Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

“Consistently, dependably and utterly funny”


fast becoming a consistent fringe must-see

Broadway Baby

Sparky goings-on and charm to spare, as Stuart Goldsmith marries pitch-perfect audience repartee with cleverly woven tales of the everyday
