‘Comedian’s comedian’ to host Progressive Preschool Awards 2019

The ‘comedian’s comedian’ Stuart Goldsmith has been announced as the host for this year’s Progressive Preschool Awards, which are being held on Tuesday 5 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair. 

The stand-up is an internationally award-winning comedian and writer with a strong reputation for being an engaging host and is an ideal choice to present the Progressive Preschool Awards after recently becoming a father himself.

He has presented The Comedian’s Comedian podcast since 2012, interviewing over 275 comics in that time, including big names such as Jimmy Carr, Russell Brand, Stewart Lee and Russell Howard. “I try to put what I learn into practice in my own comedy career,” says Stuart.

Currently in the middle of a successful UK tour, Stuart delighted crowds at this year’s Glastonbury Festival and is a veteran of the Edinburgh Festival.

Stuart will be delighting guests at the awards, which are attended by over 400 suppliers, retailers and industry pioneers from right across the preschool sector. If you want to join them, then tickets and tables can be easily organised via the online box office.
