I've performed multiple times at Montreal's Just For Laughs, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the New Zealand International Comedy Festival, and I'm also the only UK comic to have been invited to South By Southwest in Austin, Texas.
I've performed stand-up at Wembley Arena, in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, and I'm also the regular studio warm-up comic for the Graham Norton Show (BBC), which is even more fun than it sounds...
I'm available for stand-up sets and awards hosting for a wide variety of corporate functions. I'm incredibly adaptable and a really safe pair of hands that delights in making every aspect of your function go smoothly, from bespoke gags to crowd control to nudging winners onto the photographer's mark!
Recent clients include Hospital Club, Online Media Awards, Progressive Preschool Awards, Homeware Awards, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, British Telecom, SAP.com and many more.

Yet further evidence of Goldsmith’s enormous talent and indisputable mastery of the genre.
The Wee Review ★★★★
…he infuses the material with a sly wit and and underplayed sharpness, not to mention eloquent writing.
…no wonder he’s filled his room on a Monday evening; no one could dislike this.
This is smooth, smart and absorbing stand-up.
Stuart Goldsmith is a polished comic. Leaving little room for error his style of storytelling is slick, cleverly constructed and thoughtful.
Broadway Baby ★★★★
…it carries the slick professionalism of someone whose been master of their comedy voice for years.
Goldsmith is making the crucial leap from being a comedian’s comedian to being everyone’s comedian.
Edinburgh Festival Magazine ★★★★
He’s a confident commander of the stage, his open face and cheeky grin coaxing you very much onto his side.
The List ★★★★
Goldsmith emanates energy constantly.
He has a deep talent for keeping the audience’s attention the whole time, slipping effortlessly from one routine into another and never losing a beat…He gets huge laughs.
He’s introspective and acutely self-aware, with an intensely friendly stage persona that’s deeply sincere. His material is warm and life-affirming.
An Hour is a showcase of quietly perfect standup.
Edinburgh Festivals Magazine ★★★★★
His laid-back, but in control, style makes it look easy, though there’s a choreography to both his words and deeds. There’s a nice sign-off to his show that would have operated perfectly well without it, given the underplayed high quality of Goldsmith’s various routines…but serves as a cherry on the top of a very satisfying cake.
Goldsmith is a hugely underrated comic, effortlessly confident and accomplished.
Consistently, dependably and utterly funny.
