Popular comedian Stuart Taylor presents his new, incredible ninth one-man show for a limited season at the Baxter Theatre. BeSpoke will be performed from 22 September to 3 October.
From the comedy clubs of New York City and performances across Europe, to his award-winning, sold-out shows at home in South Africa, Taylor’s interrogation of the human condition has always earned him critical acclaim. BeSpoke takes his trade-mark conversational style to new heights.
“This is a back to basics comedy show inspired by my comedy club roots,” says Stuart. “It’s a no holds barred, unapologetic stand-up comedy experience.”
With BeSpoke, he also explores the concept of labels – the importance we place on them, how we label each other and what they might mean to his two young sons when they are old enough – all shared in his inimitable, hilarious style.
Stuart is one of South Africa’s most loved comedians and has kept audiences laughing with his shows such as Techni-Coloured (winner of Overall Best Comedy award at the 2008 National Arts Festival); Money’s Too Tight to Mention and Learner Husband, with which he also launched a book. He is also a popular TV presenter, having survived numerous near-death experiences in four seasons of Going Nowhere Slowly. He is a three time winner of South Africa’s Comedy Magic Champion and has cast his spell to mesmerise audiences from theatres and comedy clubs to boardrooms across the country. Stuart has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Berlin International Comedy Festival and last December at the Switzerland International Comedy Festival. He is delighted to be back at the Baxter Theatre with his first new solo stand-up comedy show in three years.
