In August 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 every night throughout the month, culminating in an extra show due to demand. The show subsequently toured venues throughout Scotland to further critical acclaim.
Since making his comedy circuit debut in 2009, Stuart has very quickly become one of the most exciting talents in recent years, performing across the biggest comedy clubs in the UK and has supported both Stewart Francis and Hal Cruttenden on their National Tours. He was shortlisted in 2013 for the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award and was a Finalist in the NATYS competition in 2012. 
Stuart has appeared on RT's 'NewsThing', ''The Blame Game' (BBC NI), The Loser World Cup' (BBC Radio Wales), 'On the Road' (BBC Scotland) and 'The Now Show' (R4). He has written for 'Mock the Week' (BBC1), 'The News Quiz (R4) and is working with BBC Comedy on a scripted development project. 
Overseas, Stuart has been part of Stand-up For Scotland show at the Adelaide Comedy Festival, he performed in the 101 World Comedy Series competition in Las Vegas, before being asked to take part in 'Best of the Fest' in Perth and Adelaide, and then the same show in Melbourne in 2017.
