Photo Album

Over the years I have performed comedy and poetry in various bars and clubs around Scotland and Turkey, where I used to reside.

I performed both as myself and also as a few different comedy characters who in order of appearance were The Great White Shaft, Hamish McTavish/McScottie and the main one I done before the plandemic, Nob Stewart.

I also make video blogs in and out of character and interview and film people I find of interest such as conspiracy researchers, comedians, musicians and poets.

The purpose of this website is to showcase the various pieces of work I have done over the years as well as share some of the videos I managed to capture of the other artists.

I don't claim to be anything other than what I am and the videos I make range from rough and ready to more polished productions.

I was brought up in a small town near Edinburgh called South Queensferry which is most famous for the Forth Rail Bridge which you can see on many postcards and souvenirs about Scotland.

I got a job in the large petrochemical factory in Grangemouth when I was 16 and I moved through to Falkirk when I was 17 to by myself, although my friends made sure I was never lonely as it became hang out central.

I met a Turkish women who was studying in Sheffield when I went to see The Rolling Stones there in 1995 and one year and twelve days later we got married….mainly so I could escape the lifestyle I had with my friends. It was ok for them, they could come and go as they pleased, I had to drink with everyone in turn.

We had a son in 2004 and in 2006 we decided to move to Antalya in Turkey where we had been visiting to see my wife’s parents. As there were no comedy clubs to perform here. During my time in Antalya, every year I would return to Scotland every August for the Edinburgh Festival where I put on a full one man show in 2002/09/11/12/14.

I got divorced in 2010 but decided to stay in Turkey to be close to my son, however I felt a bit homesick and returned to Scotland in October 2013. After returning to Antalya for a holiday in June 2014 to see my son, I realised what I had left behind and so decided to move there in August 2014.

I was very happy to be back in Turkey and although I found it difficult to find places to perform in Antalya, I did travel around the region and wrote about my adventures which also included getting married to a second Turkish lady.

Things were a bit of a struggle in the end and I got divorced and brought my son back to Scotland for his education but when they wanted him to wear a mask at school I removed him and he is now back in Turkey studying music and living with his mother.

I have a new partner called Emma who helps with the Video Business and also brings me my scarves and water just like Charlie Hodge used to do for Elvis.

There will be a book out soon which collates a lot of the writing on this site and goes further into my mad adventures so stay tuned for that if you fancy a mad read.
I built a blog/information site called Antalya Living to showcase my adventures and to keep my creative side going but I have since closed it down and imported the blogs to my Turkey section.

The website was featured in an Article by The Daily Sabah.
I have been interviewed for 5 different expat websties. You can view them all by clicking here.

About Nob Stewart

Nob Stewart in ScotlandNob Stewart is the greatest living all round psychopathic superstar sensation to come out of Scotland in the past wee while.

Forget his musical influences, Hank Williams, Little Richard, James Brown, Elvis, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Stones, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Van Morrison, Sinead O'Conner, Sydney Divine or even his namesake Rod Stewart.

Nob in Lion Rampant T-ShirtForget his literary influences, Rabbie Burns, William Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas, James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft, Jack Kerouac, Robert Anton Wilson, Ivor Cutler or even the great Pam Ayers.

Forget his comedy influences, Laurel and Hardy, Lenny Bruce, Woody Allen, Richard Pryor, Monty Python, George Carlin, Sam Kinison, Bill Hicks, Billy Connelly, Doug Stanhope, Larry David or even his idol Roy Chubby Brown.

Nob is all of the above and more in one distinct unique indescribable package.

Nob's earliest memory is performing in his Nappy aged 5 to Mary's Born Child (Jesus Christ) by Boney M. He still loves that song, not that he believes in all that fundamental literal Jesus crap, "it's just a damn good tune."" says Nob.

Nob Stewarts BirthBorn to a Virgin Mum (or at least he likes to think of her that way) the date and place of Nobs birth is unimportant, but there was a bright star overhead (probably the Sun) and 3 dodgy guys did turn up bearing gifts of Whisky, Deep Fried Pizza and 20 Fags but we think they had escaped from the local mental asylum, or old folks home as it is more commonly known.

Nob Stewart performing at Hampden Park in his KiltAll that matters however, is that he is here with us NOW to entertain the masses with his thoughtful views of the world, his insightful lyrics, his funny poems and stories,his unique vocal style and above all his passionate delivery. "To share my mediocre talents and save the human race from its inevitable self destruction is my life's purpose" Nob says humbly.

So catch him while you can, like all the greats Nob thinks his matchstick may burn so bright he may not be around long enough to see it strike up.

Nob's Welcome

nob welcome
Hello folks, hoo's it hangin? Aricht? Cool.

A' would also like tae tell ye that ah'm nae as daft as a look. A lot ae folk judge me by ma tartan cover but underneath a' ma bravado ah' hive got a guid heart. A' mean well an' a jist want tae express masel tae the max before a' pop ma clogs which considerin' the amoont ae alcohol a' hiv consumed in ma time could be any day noo.

If nae yin else is interested then at least ye tried yer best and yer alricht in ma book. If a' ever meet ye a' will let ye buy me a pint or six.

So, any'hin else ye want tae ken aboot me, jist ask........an' a'll dae ma best tae get back tae ye within a week or so.

A' am a busy man aftir aw, great wurks ae art dinnae write themself.

Ye are an aspirin’ superstar like masel, an' want tae send me some links fur me tae check oot yer stuff and as long as amnae busy pickin' ma beak that day, a' will check it oot. Christ a' may even share it on facebook, if a’ ‘hink yer any guid, obviously.

So, let us ken yer thoughts on ma site or even if ye jist want tae tell me a’m a waste ae space feel free tae get in contact although ye would be wastin’ yer time wi’ that comment as a’ hiv already dealt wi’ the fear ae whit other people ‘hink ae me due tae ma unique Zen practice ae makin’ a complete tit ae masel mare often than David Icke.
