Recently seen on ITV1’s Show Me The Funny, Stuart Goldsmith makes a welcome return to The Stoke, having performed at one of our first shows 4 years ago. Since then his stock has risen, as he’s proved himself a warm, charming and confident performer both here and abroad. Stuart’s infectious banter channels the effortless charisma and quick-fire timing honed over a youth misspent as a street performer.
‘Sparky goings-on and charm to spare, as Stuart Goldsmith marries pitch-perfect audience repartee with cleverly woven tales of the everyday.’ – The Independent
