Stewart is a television writer and producer with high-level experience working with narrative, sketch, entertainment and factual.  He grew up in a council flat just outside Birmingham, did a degree in Filmmaking at Derby University and got his break working for MTV in 2002 where he was responsible for hiring and training new presenters as well as live production.  

He was snapped up by Liz Murdoch and Steven D Wright to develop comedy entertainment content for Shine UK, where he worked for several years.  

Over recent years he has worked extensively writing sit-coms, feature films and sketch and entertainment shows.  He created and co-wrote the comedy drama PLUS ONE for Channel 4 which starred Daniel Mays, and his sit-com THE WEDDING LIST was taken to pilot for NBC in the US.  He wrote the BAFTA winning web-series WHO KILLED SUMMER and worked as a senior writer on the BAFTA and Emmy winning THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL for Cartoon Network, which subsequently saw him tasked with developing a new 52 part animated series for Disney, now in production.  He has also worked as a script editor on several UK and US sit-coms and films for the likes of Objective Productions, NBC and Lionsgate. 

As a monologue and joke writer, Stewart has been creating material for many of the most established presenters and comedians working today, including Rob Brydon, Dermot O'Leary, Jo Brand, John Bishop, Davina McCall, Joe Lycett, Alex Brooker, Emma Willis, Russel Brand, David Walliams, Matt Berry, Mickey Flanaghan, Paul Chowdry, and Gordon Ramsay.

His creative ability to quickly turn around material, his extensive pop-culture and current affairs knowledge and his instinctive skill at working with on-screen talent to tailor material to their individual voice means he can always deliver.  Alongside this, his production and development experience gives him valuable insight and problem-solving ability when writing on formatted and topical entertainment shows.  

He is skilled at creating hidden camera and visual comedy, best done with warmth and good humour, and was script editor and senior writer on 3 series of ITV's ratings winner OFF THEIR ROCKERS.  He has also worked on the OFF THEIR ROCKERS BLUE BADGE SPECIAL working with disabled comedy performers on pranking the public.  .  

He has several comedy scripts in development as well as regular work developing and producing factual entertainment formats, most recently creating and producing CELEBRITY CALL CENTRE which will transmit as a centerpiece of the 2018 STAND UP TO CANCER programming for Channel 4.
