In 2016, Stuart made his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe, with his show 'Dealt a Bad Hand' at The Pleasance Courtyard. The show received critical acclaim and sell out audiences throughout the month, culminating in an extra show due to demand. His follow up show “Gordon Ramsay’s Karma Café” received excellent 4 and 5-star reviews from its 2018 run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
“Work of genius” - Daily Record ★★★★★
Stuart recently followed in the footsteps of Dara O’Brian, Paul Merton and Craig Ferguson by being handpicked to perform in the 'Best of the Edinburgh Fest' showcase at the Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne Comedy Festivals.
There's a real warmth and honesty running alongside the clever wordplay and sharp one-liners. He was also endorsed by Hollywood actor Will Ferrell after performing in Los Angeles.
Stuart who is originally from Glasgow, is the longest running panellist on BBC Scotland's 'Breaking the News' and was part of the panel line up for the very first TV recording of the show.
Stuart has written for 'Mock the Week' (BBC1), Newsquiz (BBC Radio 4), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and 'The Loser World Cup' (BBC Radio Wales).
The Glaswegian’s exceptional writing skills and the ability to tailor material for any audience means he is highly in demand as a host of corporate events and award ceremonies across Europe and beyond!
Press Coverage for Fringe Debut 'Dealt a Bad Hand' 2016
"One of Scotland's rising star's, Stuart Mitchell is a comedian worth catching before he becomes mega." Sunday Mail - Pick of the Fringe
"There's a real warmth and honesty running alongside the clever wordplay and sharp one-liners. Stuart has a wonderfully relaxed stage presence that hints of great things to come." ★★★★ The Herald
"...and that is the joy of Stuart Mitchell. He is so calm on stage, so friendly and inviting that you will instantly warm to him. He deserves every star he receives!" ★★★★ Arts Award Voice
"His set is well written, impeccably presented, peppered with laugh out loud moments as this likeable guy delivers in spades.
Look out for Stuart rising rapidly in the comedy world and gaining loads of fans and critical acclaim along the way."
"But take the risk and follow him straight into the deep end, and you’ll leave the show completely sold."
★★★★ The Skinny
