Stuart Goldsmith: Fringe 2012
Stuart Goldsmith’s a charming, nice-guy comedian – but he’s not so clean-cut as he appears. Or at least that’s the premise here.
Not that he’s truly nasty – that would have given the show a title the Edinburgh Fringe office would have been right to censor, rather than overreacting to this mildest self-admonishment. No, his prickish behaviour amounts to being so self-absorbed he never remembers anybody’s names, and indulging in a spate of one-night stands when at an emotional ebb.
Even if you do consider this moral turpitude, Goldsmith is so pleasant and persuasive that you would surely forgive him. He puts these attributes to good use from the get-go, relaxing the audience quickly before taking the dynamic into amore interesting, and slightly weird, direction as he pushes the old compere’s line about ending the night with an orgy just a little further than most people would be at ease with.
Comfort zones duly expanded, he’s free to make his own confessions, in what turns out to be a rock-solid hour of entertaining anecdotal stand-up. It’s not of particularly strong flavour, as Goldsmith is still essentially an amiable everyman despite his indiscretions, but there’s little to find fault with.
He further exploits his expertise at audience interaction during one of two keynote routines – about being the only man invited on a lesbian hen night and rather loving the attention – by assuming one front-row punter is a die-hard homophobe; allowing him to create a running joke from the stereotypes he assumes his hapless foil is carrying in his head.
The other key routine is about a deeply unsatisfying one-night stand he had with a girl at a party, and even if his conduct wasn’t classy, the resultant routine – indeed the resultant show – certainly is.
With perfectly nailed timing and delivery, this confident and funny show from a hugely personable

Saw you at the cliffs pavilions and thought you were fantastic x
Stuart, saw you at Warrington and thought you were brilliant with a sterile audience. I loved your clarity of diction enabling me to catch your witty one-liners, often missed sadly by many, but you were an excellent act, very sharp and very funny.
Its hard to imagine a more out of date review. Three and a half years on, and Stuart is simply brilliant with anecdotes galore displaying a wonderfully inventive, playful and deeply individual look at sex, sexuality , relationships , and the posher end of the canine world. In addition, his street performing skills give him a persona that it warm, engaging and entirely suited to his material. Undoubtedly one of my faves.
Did not disappoint - funny and charming, he made me belly laugh, and that takes some doing.
The guy puts the whole audience at ease. The second he walks on you think OK, this is gonna be good. Love the sci-fi material
This boy literally oozes brilliance. When he's not charming the crowd with his rapier-like wit, he's whipping up a storm with some highly original show-stopping routines. Can't wait to see him again. Definitely the best comic I've seen this year,
We booked Stuart to compere our comedy night this year and he did an amazing job. He is funny, intelligent and very likeable. He will be invited back without doubt.
