Stuart Goldsmith, Comedian and Stratford-upon-Avon College ex-student.
Comedian and ex-student, Stuart Goldsmith returns to Stratford-upon-Avon College on Thursday 13th January to perform his debut solo stand-up comedy show The Reasonable Man.
Stuart was a nice, normal boy who grew up in Leamington Spa and studied his A Levels at Stratford-upon-Avon College. Then it all went wrong! Perhaps because of his squeaky clean background, Stuart spent his whole life desperately trying to be interesting. It sort of worked…. The Reasonable Man is the story of what happened when he tried to be himself instead. It is a white-knuckle, high-octane meander through the worlds of sex, circus and subculture. A glorious stand-up debut from a nice young man with no tattoos.
Stuart studied the A Level Drama Package in 1994-6 at Stratford-upon-Avon College. After attending the College Stuart and fellow ex-student Noel Byrne went onto become street performers, winning the Scottish National Busking Championships. Stuart later won third place in the World Championships!
As a stand-up comic, Stuart has supported Mark Watson on tour and warmed up TV studio audiences for Miranda, The IT Crowd, 2 Pints of Lager, Coming of Age, We Need Answers and The Stephen K Amos Show.
Of his time at the College, Stuart said, “Stratford-upon-Avon College is an incredible place and gave me an astonishing professional grounding in both performance and the ability to make work under my own steam, rather than waiting for someone else to give it to me.
“I am thrilled to be back at the College performing the work I am most proud of.”
The Reasonable Man is on Thursday 13th January 7:30pm at Stratford-upon-Avon College. Tickets are priced at £5 (£3 concessions) and are available from the College’s box office on email@example.com or 01789 266245.
“Charming expert stand-up” Sunday Times
“Consistently, dependably and utterly funny” FIVE STARS – Three Weeks
“Probably the bravest and definitely one of the best debut shows I have seen. This is very pure, very assured, very entertaining stand-up comedy, and there is not one single dull moment. A wonderful, warm, witty hour.” Scotsman
