On Sun 19 Jan, Stuart Goldsmith is coming to The Komedia! Goldsmith has made many television appearances on a variety of channels. Some of which include Russell Howard’s Stand-up Central on Comedy Central, The Dog ate my Homework on CBBC, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled on Dave and Just For Laughs: All Access on The Comedy Network in Canada. Now he arrives in Brighton with his new tour ‘Compared to What’.
People are quick to talk about Goldsmiths witty banter. “An assault on the magic of comedy…” is how one listener described Goldsmith’s bewilderingly popular podcast – ‘Comedian’s Comedian’, which has reached over 6 million downloads worldwide. “It’s incredible Goldsmith doesn’t have his own TV show by now” say The List. Well, prepare for a performative experience which will make you wonder the same thing.
It’s 2017 and life looks very different. Finding himself uprooted from his adoptive city and press-ganged into a pastoral existence by a fiendishly cunning girl. Stu considers the big questions such as: How much should one spend on an ear-thermometer? Is everywhere West of Leigh Delamere basically Fairyland? How much compromise is too much? It’s not like he’s had a baby or anything… There will be no confetti-cannons, video-screens or artistically-suspect nudity. The consistently popular fringe performer brings you stripped-back, gimmick-free stand-up about life and how not to not cope with it. He’s made a list, checked it twice, and now he’s ready for action. Motorcyclists, lateral thinking, nitrous oxide, feather head-dresses – there is nothing this man won’t gently mock and shed his crafty opinions on.
