Stuart Black at the FHM Search For A Stand-Up Hero final
Stuart Black’s set struggled to take flight, though he has some interesting ideas and the occasional delightful – or otherwise – turn of phrase. His description of a haemorrhoid in his routine about Embarrassing Bodies will sear itself into your memory.
The matter-of-fact delivery eschews the hard sell, but also means he can struggle to demand attention, especially in the sections that are less assured, such as his discussion of his ill-fated attempts to spice up his sex life… a routine which ended in a Chewbacca impression that seems rather passé these days.

Stuart is brilliant - seen him perform many times and will do so many more!
If brevity is indeed the soul of wit, then Stuart's watch is running fast. There are times I don't know what the hell he's talking about, and neither does anyone else. Including, I fear, the man himself. But anyone whose webpage boasts 'Two Chickens Breaking Up A Rabbit Fight' deserves consideration.rnrnPlus, his approach is confident enough to shame Lenny Bruce, laid-back enough to shame Jack Dee, and beer-swigging enough to shame Paul Calf. Dubious comparisons aside, Stuart has the uncanny knack of starting low-key, slowly working up to the major issue, and finally exploding without losing a Fawlty-esque sense of bewilderment. Sure, Stu's not quite in control of his material yet - the words are often tougher than their delivery - but as he gains your approval you feel one day Stuart will be all the aforementioned comedy heroes and more.
Very promising indeed. Played elegant, tightly written sets at my Banbury and Oxford gigs.
I saw Stuart a few months back, he was the one stunning highlight of a rather dull evening. He had some really good material.
I think he's great. Spot-on review that will look lovely when he's had that experience and grown to match his potential.
Stuart is utterly fantastic and easily one of my favourite acts around right now. The shit he comes up with... unbelievable. To make a lazy comparison I'd say Dylan Moran meets Gene Wilder meets Stuart Black. On acid.
