The Wonderful World of Stu is a sketch comedy American television program on TheBlaze, created and hosted by Steve "Stu" Burguiere. The show airs at 8:00pm on Friday nights.

Burguiere highlights issues important to American conservatives and libertarians, while combatting progressives and socialists. Of particular interest to Burgiere, many episodes have included at least one reference to New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and his health regulations, particularly the 2012 soda limit. For example, Burgiere ended one episode by sipping a Big Gulp, raising the cup as if to toast, and declaring: "Screw you, Michael Bloomberg!"

Recurring segments[edit]

  • Clichés: The Worst Thing Since Sliced Bread: Burguiere mocks common cliches, by pointing out their in-applicability to real life.
  • Talking Heads: Stu conducts an interview in which the interviewee remotely appears on a television set, but the TV set is placed in front of the head of an on-set, seated staffer.
  • Great Moments in Progressive History: Narrated by Burguiere, this segment sarcastically supports a progressive cause and hyperbolizes its effects on history and society.
  • Stu-tistics: Burguiere uses statistics and data provided by the federal government or an organization to challenge an ongoing cause being championed by progressives and Democrats.
  • White House Press Briefing: Burguiere portrays White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and answers questions posed by the White House press corps. The questions come from video clips of real questions from the actual White House correspondents. The segment is fictitiously aired on STU-SPAN, a parody of C-SPAN.
  • Letters to Woodrow...In Hell: Burguiere portrays Woodrow Wilson, the former President of the United States and current "President of hell", and reads letters from those seeking his advice on a variety of matters. The set used is the Oval Office set used for Glenn Beck's television program.
