Described by The Sun as ‘Scotland’s brightest comedy talent’, the Glaswegian comic’s sharp one-liners, brilliant turn of phrase and clever wordplay has made him a perfect choice as a regular panelist on BBC Radio Scotland’s satirical comedy show ‘Breaking the News’.
In August 2016, Stuart made his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe, with his show ‘Dealt a Bad Hand’, at The Pleasance Courtyard. The show received critical acclaim and sell out audiences every night throughout the month, culminating in an extra show due to demand. The show recently toured venues throughout Scotland to further critical acclaim. His follow up show “Gordon Ramsay’s Karma Café” received excellent 4 and 5-star reviews from its 2018 run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Stuart recently followed in the footsteps of Dara O’Brian, Paul Merton and Craig Ferguson by being handpicked to perform in the ‘Best of the Edinburgh Fest’ showcase at the Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne Comedy Festivals. There’s a real warmth and honesty running alongside the clever wordplay and sharp one-liners. He was also endorsed by Hollywood actor Will Ferrell after performing in Los Angeles.
Stuart is the longest running panellist on BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Breaking the News’. Stuart has written for ‘Mock the Week’ (BBC1), Newsquiz (BBC Radio 4), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and ‘The Loser World Cup’ (BBC Radio Wales).
Due to his writing skills and the ability to tailor material for any event he is highly in demand as a host of events and award ceremonies across Europe and beyond!

Not only was Stuart funny, he was also very professional and mixed with the audience and our VIPs before his set and afterwards. I would definitely recommend Stuart to anyone looking for a comedian who can lift the spirits of the audience and generally give people a good time!”
