Best of the Fest: Assembly Hall, Edinburgh, 2018
Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of The Fringe (2 shows): Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2019
Return of The Craic Online Comedy Club: Online: 2021
Tom Stade, the Canadian comic featured on the bill for the Best of The Fest showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018. He made me laugh a lot with his relaxed, laid-back comedy and razor-sharp wit. Stade reflected upon life’s problems and wanted to know truthful answers. He was a very popular act with the audience.
Stade again appeared twice for the Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of The Fringe showcase that I saw in Edinburgh in August 2019. Celebrating thirty years of stand-up comedy, he delivered stories about accepting change with his customary essence and energy using brilliant audience interaction. He was deservedly presented with a Spirit of The Fringe ‘Merv’ award.
In March 2021, Stade headlined Return of The Craic Online Comedy Club. Part chart with compere Jarlath Regan and part routine, Stade was brilliant at delivering frustration in his stories of coping with lockdown.
