Stuart Taylor
Comedian, Magician and TV personality

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 and magic shows.

His award-winning formula of a meticulous fusion of comedy and magic earned him recognition as South Africa's Comedy Magic Champion, a title he held for three years. After ditching his microscope and lab coat, Taylor's delightful potion of enigmatic entertainment has mesmerised audiences from theatres to boardrooms across South Africa. His corporate repertoire includes most of South Africa's blue chip multinationals with Shell SA, De Beers, Engen, Sun International, Red Bull and Ogilvy, among his endless list of tributes.

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 in 2003, The Berlin International Comedy Festival in 2004 and his sold-out comedy-magic theatre productions in South Africa.

Critics describe his work as, "Classy style, laid back super professional presentation" - Cape Times, "…great observations from a new perspective" - Cape Argus, "Skreeu Snaaks!" - Die Burger, "Entertainment with a capital E" - Cape Argus

Taylor's stand-up comedy performances have also been featured on various South African television shows, which include "Evita Live and Dangerous", Barry Hilton's "Funny you should say that", "Top Billing", "The Phat Joe show", "Heita", SABC 3's "Comedy Showcase" and "Laugh Out Loud", South Africa's biggest ever comedy event.

He is also the South African comedy link on SKY Television for the Lion Red Sports Café, a New Zealand sports show hosted by ex-All Blacks Rick Selitso and Mark Ellis.

This multi-talented performer is available for corporate event bookings, both as an entertaining Master of Ceremonies and for samples of a charming potion of comedy and magic.
