Shakespeare said the world was a stage and we are all players. Does that ring true for you? Stuart Black uses his twisted and razor-sharp humour to examine the world we live in, and look back at his life of alcohol and drug fuelled adventures; his conclusion… It’s more of a Flea Circus.

What the press say:

"Comic-philosopher" - Londonisfunny.co.uk

"Pitch black but spectacularly smart." - The List.

"...a pleasurable hour spent listening to a prodigious wordsmith with tight writing." - Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

"He's an act with something to say, and a wonderful way of saying it." - Chortle.co.uk

" Very enjoyable, very thoughtful – if Black isn't careful, he's going to become a cult comedian." - Londondisfunny.co.uk

"Beautifully poetic... [he is] a fascinating character seemingly straight out of a Kerouac novel" - theskinny.co.uk

"Black is certainly speaking a very different language to many Fringe stand-ups." - thelist.co.uk

"Warm, engaging and dangerously funny." Rip it up Magazine, Adelaide

"...skilful delivery, matched with a care in choosing his language and imagery… one to watch." chortle.co.uk

"...elegant writing and relaxed style." chortle.co.uk

“Black takes on the down side of ordinary life and its infuriating issues and turns them into something all at once shocking, amazing, impossible and fantastic... “ DB Magazine - Adelaide
"he says things you won’t have heard before in an interesting, witty way, with lashings of aloof attitude." chortle.co.uk
"He’s often tipped as being one to watch for the future – it surely won’t be long until the future is now." chortle.co.uk
