The Canadian comic is a familiar face on Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Live At The Apollo where puns are his speciality.

His latest touring show - Pun Gent - will be full of non-stop quick-fire gags with a hook, punchline and a dose of panache thrown in. Stewart has earned a reputation as one of the finest comics around thanks to his many television appearances and sell out national tours. He even picked up Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe Award in 2012.

Stewart is also an actor and writer with credits including Not Going Out and The Omid Djalili Show. He is currently developing a television sitcom script which chronicles observations he’s made about living in the UK.
