My brand new comedy special "I Need You Alive" is out now on YouTube for free!

My "Comedian's Comedian" podcast has had over 25 million downloads, and has inspired comics who've gone on to appear on Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You and many more.


My new climate crisis comedy show "Spoilers" won BEST SHOW 2023 at the Leicester Comedy Festival, was one of the best-reviewed shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, and opens at Soho Theatre in November.

(Seen that show? Here's the reading list!)

It's a frank and funny look at how we can all do more to alleviate our own dread and combat inertia in the face of the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced.

I also have a 30min version created for corporate sustainability departments that can recharge your climate comms!

"Stu was absolutely brilliant and brought a fantastically upbeat (and much needed) energy to our firm’s Friday afternoon call. His perspectives on building resilience were really thoughtful and relevant for us all. I would highly recommend this session as an alternative and fresh take on cultivating resilience”

Like an executive, a comedian is simultaneously the most powerful and the most vulnerable person in the room, and I should know! As well as my own experience I also host the “Comedian's Comedian” podcast ("absolutely riveting" – Guardian), in which I interview comedy greats from Jimmy Carr to Kathy Griffin about the habits and processes that help them to create - and cope.

I love sharing everything I’ve learnt about cultivating resilience, authenticity, and problem-solving under pressure!
