"Comedian’s Comedian" podcast host and 'expert stand-up' (Times) 

After a run of packed houses at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, host and creator of The Comedian’s Comedian Podcast Stuart Goldsmith brings his latest hour of stand-up to Cambridge.

Stu's finally getting accustomed to parenthood and living as a family, and now the gnawing desperation he used to feel in everyday life has been replaced by this molten core of joy that is powering everything he does.  The only downside? The surface happiness upon which he used to rely has evaporated completely, to be replaced by oceans of resentment!

People talk about "digging deep" and "carrying on", but Stu's too busy worrying about his wife's insomnia, the price of blueberries, and how surprisingly difficult it is to find somewhere you can scream with rage in your car without unnerving the postman.  Not to mention swimming lessons, Brexit and what a weird place the world has turned into since the baby was conceived...

And how does everyone else cope with the early mornings?  

And what's the secret of lasting contentment?

And why, if it's a genuine medical condition, does his wife freak out only at the sound of Stu eating, and not the baby?!

2017 saw Stuart complete his second international tour, supporting Jack Whitehall in front of 12,000 people at a sold-out Wembley Arena, and culminating in a packed week-long run at Soho Theatre. Stu's "Comedian's Comedian" podcast hit the peaks of 7.5 million downloads, celebrating his 200th episode with a special episode with Stewart Lee that has one on to be his most-downloaded yet.  Other ComComPod guests this year included comedy legends like Russell Brand, Jeremy Hardy, Jo Brand and Barry Cryer.
