Winner: Leicester Comedy Festival Best New Show 2017

After a run of packed houses at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, host and creator of The “Comedian’s Comedian Podcast” Stuart Goldsmith will tour his latest hour of stand-up, Like I Mean It, around the UK in 2018.

Tickets are available to see the stand-up comedian perform at The Criterion in Leicester on Saturday, 10 February 2018.

Stu said: "To talk about myself in the first person for once; winning Best New Show at Leicester with a flappy, all-over-the-place new material preview was brilliant, and look, honestly? This is my best ever show. I'm so proud of it, it's stupider and less clever-clogs and just the funniest stuff I've ever created. OK? Back to the PR."

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 supplanted by a core of molten joy. The only downside? Oceans of resentment on the surface!

People talk about "digging deep" and "carrying on", but Stu's fixated on his wife's insomnia, the price of blueberries, and how hard it is to howl with rage in your car without scaring the postman. Not to mention swimming lessons, interminable Brexit and what a weird place the world has turned into since the baby was conceived...

How does everyone else cope with the early mornings? 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 little dribbling child?!

The year of 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 8.5 million downloads, celebrating its 200th episode with a special appearance by Stewart Lee that has to be his most-downloaded yet. Other ComComPod guests this year included comedy legends like Russell Brand, Reginald D Hunter, Jo Brand and Barry Cryer.
