Stewart Smith after dinner speaker and comedy writer. He is one of the most popular speakers in Scotland
Stewart is a talented sketch writer of comedy mainly for BBC, radio and television, and among those who have struggled to raise a laugh through his efforts, are Gregor Fisher, Tony Roper, Jonathan Watson and Elaine C. Smith.
Such is his success in this field of entertainment, that he steadfastly refuses to give up his day job, and indeed relies heavily on after-dinner speaking as his main source of a regular balanced meal. He loves all sport and is equally at home in Bowling clubs, Golf clubs, Rugby and football clubs.
As a much sought-after speaker on the Burns circuit, Stewart has successfully performed at such far-flung outposts as the International Convention Centre in Calgary, the British Embassy in Cairo, the British Ambassador’s residence in Sofia, Bulgaria, dozens of Golf clubs and sports nights
Stewart Smith was born and raised in the Lanarkshire mining village of Burnbank, the same village that reared such sporting greats as Jock Stein and Walter McGowan.
While this upbringing led Jock and Walter to become legends of Scottish sport, Stewart achieved his own level of sporting fame as a less than promising left-winger with Blantyre Vics in the early seventies.
Coming from Lanarkshire, Stewart is keen on sport having played for Blantyre Vics in the early seventies.
