Stuart Taylor

Stuart Taylor is one of the most intelligent & prolific comedians performing in South Africa today. Dubbed by some as the “King of Relationship Comedy” his ability to interrogate the human condition, explore people, illuminate how people interact with each other exposing our similarities & differences alike – has made him a fan favourite amongst many.The uncanny manner in which he casts spells of unbridled laughter on virtually any audience has earned him the adoration of local critics and fans over the years in his many ensemble show appearances & his incredibly impressive 7 one man show theatre productions that he has toured the country with.

Stuart Taylor is probably best known to South Africans as the presenter of SABC 3’s hit travel show, Going Nowhere Slowly. But when this Stellenbosch University science graduate is not in front of the camera with mud-powdered face and wind-styled hair, Taylor is enchanting local and international audiences with his headline, stand-up comedy shows.

Taylor’s delightful potion of enigmatic entertainment has mesmerised audiences from theatres to boardrooms across South Africa, performing for many of the country’s top companies.

Taylor’s uncanny ability to cast spells of unbridled laughter on virtually any audience, earned him the adoration of critics and fans for his performances at the Pleasace Dome at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Berlin International Comedy Festival and his sold-out 1-man comedy theatre productions throughout South Africa.

His most recent theatre production “Learner Husband” has played to critical acclaim across the country from the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town to the Market Theatre in Johannesburg as well as successful runs at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown and at Montecasino’s main theatre. His new show has built on the success of his previous 1-man show “Techni-Coloured” which had scooped some amazing reviews and awards, winning the prestigious Overall Best Comedy award at the National Arts Festival and the Show Time award for the best solo performance.
