Star of ‘Russell Howard Show’ headlines Lyme Regis

STUART Goldsmith, a “charming, expert stand-up” famed for ‘The Comedian’s Comedian’ podcast, is the headline act of the next Lyme Regis Comedy Club.

Stuart started his career as a street performer, moving on to stand-up comedy. In addition to his stand-up credentials, recent years have seen Stuart build a reputation as a highly skilled interviewer and engaging host.

His insightful podcast – ‘The Comedian’s Comedian’ – shines a light on his fellow comics. Previous guests include Russell Brand, Jimmy Carr, Tim Minchin, Russell Howard, Sarah Millican, Al Murray, Ross Noble, Tim Vine, and David O’Doherty.

Stuart is an Edinburgh Festival Fringe veteran. Having been introduced to the festival as a street performer originally, he has since performed seven solo shows at the festival and presented ‘The Comedian’s Comedian’ podcast at the Fringe three times.

Stuart’s critically-acclaimed 2016 show ‘Compared To What’ subsequently toured around the world. His new show, ‘End Of’, debuted to rave reviews at the 2018 Fringe, earning a recommendation from the British Comedy Guide as one of their best shows at the festival. It will tour the UK in 2019.

Dan Evans and Sandi Smith are also on the bill, alongside resident compere Tom Glover.

The comedy club will be held at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis on Saturday, January 19 with doors opening at 7pm for an 8pm start.

Tickets cost £8 in advance or £10 on the door with 10% off for Theatre Friends. To book, call 01297 442138 or visit
