Stuart TaylorLocation: Based in Cape Town
Stuart Taylor, with his unique blend of stand-up comedy and magic, is by far one of SA’s top entertainment acts. He has been performing magic since his teens when he studied this art at the College of Magic in Cape Town. Stuart went on to become the reigning SA National Comedy Magic Champion, a title he held for 3 years. He has been performing stand-up comedy for the last 17 years and is a veteran of the varied comedy venues across South Africa.
Stuart Taylor became a household name as the host of SABC 3’s hit travel show, Going Nowhere Slowly. A magician turned comedian, he has long since swopped his off beat travels for entertaining local and international audiences with his stand-up comedy shows (with an occasional touch of magic).
Internationally, he has performed to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Berlin International Comedy Festival, New Zealand International Comedy Festival and the Montreaux Comedy festival in Switzerland.
Locally, he has performed throughout most of SA. Stuart has written, produced and performed nine 1-man shows that have toured across South Africa. His most noted and famed shows include ‘Techni-Coloured’, ‘Learner Husband’ & ‘Money’s Too Tight to Mention’. Some of these solo performances have scooped various awards including the prestigious Ovation Award & Overall Best Comedy award at the National Arts Festival, and the Show Time Award for best solo performance. The success of ‘Learner Husband’ led Stuart to write the best selling comedy book: ‘Learner Husband – A handy guide for avoiding collisions with your wife’ which was launched in 2013 with a major national campaign.
Stuart’s TV credits include:
- two Comedy Central specials (Live at Parker’s), as well as
- his 1-man show, ‘Money’s Too Tight to Mention’ being aired on said channel.
- A 6-part documentary ‘Diary of a touring comic’ (which he had written, produced and directed) was showcased on Mzansi Magic.
- ‘Evita Live & Dangerous’, Barry Hilton’s ‘Funny you should say that’, SABC’s ‘Comedy Showcase’, MNET’s ‘Laugh out Loud’
- In addition, he has also appeared on various magazine and chat shows over the span of his career.
In June 2016, audiences will see Stuart starring in his first feature film, Finders Keepers, a comedy drama directed and produced by Maynard Kraak.
