"Work of genius. Remarkable."
"Straight out of the school of self-deprecating Glaswegian comedians, comparisons will inevitably be drawn between Mitchell and Kevin Bridges. "
"One of Scotland's rising star's, Stuart Mitchell is a comedian worth catching before he becomes mega."
Stuart Mitchell made his comedy circuit debut in 2009 and very quickly has become one of the most exciting talents in recent years performing across the biggest comedy clubs in the UK. Stuart was a finalist in the NATYS competition in 2012 and was shortlisted in 2013 for the BBC New Comedy Award.
The Glaswegian comic’s sharp one-liners, brilliant turn of phrase and clever wordplay made him a perfect choice to support Stewart Francis and Hal Cruttenden on their national tours. He is the longest running panellist on BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News and has also written for Mock the Week (BBC 1) Newsquiz (BBC Radio 4) The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and The Loser World Cup (BBC Radio Wales). Stuart was part of the Stand-up For Scotland show at the Adelaide Comedy Festival in 2013 and appeared in the AAA Stand-up Late show and CKP Lunchtime Special at the Edinburgh Fringe. He has appeared at the Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival as part of Best of The Fest 2015.
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 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.
