Starring Stand Up Comedian CLAUDE STUART

From packing comedy venues across the globe to regular
television appearances on shows like “The Tonight Show”
and “Last Comic Standing”, veteran comedian Claude Stuart
has come a long way from his down home southern roots.
By his own admission, he was “paddled on more than one
occasion for being the class clown.” Claude’s explosive, in-
your-face, rapid-fire, madman stage style is truly an
exhilarating assault on the senses and has evoked
comparisons to golden era physical comedians such as
Steve Martin, Robin Williams and Jim Carrey. Claude’s
unique brand of Don Rickles-esque crowd interaction,
coupled with clever and well-written jokes, makes him not
only the world’s first physical insult comedian…but a
“comedy triple threat”!
Claude’s decision to pursue a career as a comedian was not
well received by his family. Born in deep south tugboat
town, Greenville, Mississippi, Claude’s attorney father and
school teacher mother were not initially thrilled their only son
chose stand-up over law school. Growing up, there was a
lot of judgment. “Most kids got in trouble; I got cross
examined. I would often hear, ‘This is what you did wrong
and here’s why,’” says Claude. Instead of taking the
criticism personally, he transformed the experience into the
unique style his fans have come to know and love. He likens
his comedy to legal arguments focused upon proving a point,
which clearly comes from growing up in a family full of
lawyers. Now, even his parents agree: Comedy was the
right choice.
Claude’s natural comedic flair was recognized early on. As
a teen, he interned at a local radio station. Though he

wasn’t supposed to be on the air, one of the DJs thought he
was funny and let him call in as celebrities and random
characters. When the boss found out all these voices and
jokes were coming from Claude, he offered him a job writing
and co-hosting the morning radio show, which was
broadcast to 35 cities nationwide. Next he won the title,
“Funniest Person at SMU”. After a pit stop in Houston where
he developed his stand-up act, he naturally ended up in L.A.
This led to an extremely successful stand-up career; as well
as myriad appearances in feature films and television,
including starring with Jay Leno on the wildly popular
“Undercover Jay” skit segment of “The Tonight Show”.
Many people recognize Claude Stuart from hilarious national
commercials he did for products such as Honda, Heineken,
Jeep, Grapenuts, Doritos and even Midol. He has appeared
on “That 70s Show”, “Scrubs”, “The Late, Late Show”, “Will &
Grace”, “Comics Unleashed”, “Agent Carter”, “Melissa &
Joey”, “Last Man Standing” with Tim Allen, “The Best Damn
Sports Show, Period!”, “Oblivious!”, “Talk Soup”, and as a
regular on “The Bob and Tom Show”. He has been in feature
films such as Starship Troopers, Man On The Moon and
Adam Carolla’s Road Hard. He also created a show for The
Tennis Channel that he wrote and hosted called “Game, Set
& Laugh!”
Claude most recently co-created and is starring in the
critically acclaimed sketch series “High Land Parking” on
Amazon Prime, and he is a regular performer on The
Weather Channel’s “Weather Gone Viral!” Claude has also
been writing for the popular comedy game show “Funny You
Should Ask” starring Howie Mandel, Tiffany Haddish, Louie
Anderson and Jon Lovitz; and he has gotten 300 jokes on
the air.
