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 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 leading touring act in his own right, and finds himself well on the road to being a household name. Since 2011, he has toured the UK every year with a new show, playing to packed houses and garnering rave reviews. Tom’s inimitable style and sharp observations caught the eye of talent executives at 4DVD, and he was signed an exclusive deal, releasing his debut Live stand-up DVD in 2013. Tom Stade Live is available in stores and online now.
After years of dedicated gigging, he has recently scooped a nomination for Best Headliner at the Chortle Awards. He has been a permanent fixture at the Edinburgh festival, causing a stir at the Pleasance Courtyard with his hit show What Year Was That?, firmly cementing his reputation as a distinctive and formidable live act. A complete sell-out success, with extra dates added due to overwhelming demand, it was rumored to be on the shortlist for a nomination from the luminaries at the Edinburgh Comedy Award.
