Since arriving in the UK, Canadian émigré Tom Stade has steadily earned a reputation as one of the most original and exciting stand-up talents around. He instantly made a splash on the UK circuit with his magnetic stage presence, irrepressible charm and first-class story-telling, and after years topping the bill and playing at international comedy festivals around the globe, he is now established as a leading touring act in his own right, and finds himself well on the road to being a household name.
Comedy festival performances include New York, Edinburgh, Aspen, Montreal, Toronto, Amsterdam, Manchester, Kilkenny, Adelaide, Melbourne and New Zealand. He has also regularly entertained British troops overseas, braving the freezing cold Falklands, and been under fire in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Tomʼs irrepressible charm translated effortlessly to TV, and he has been invited onto every major stand-up TV show in the country including Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyreʼs Comedy Roadshow, Lee Mackʼs All Star Cast, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, The Boyle Variety Performance. Stand-Up for the Week and Daveʼs One Night Stand. He also co-wrote and co-starred in Frankie Boyleʼs recent Channel 4 series Tramadol Nights.
