Tom Staid ( 1hrs, tour warm up)
We’ve been trying to get Tom Staid to Walthamstow for ages so we are very excited about this in fact we wanted him so much we changed our date to a Wednesday night!
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. Tv includes Live at the Apollo, The Comedy Store, The Live Floor Show, Stand Up for the Week, and The World Stands Up. Other appearances include: Mock the Week, the Birmingham leg of (whilst he lived in Wolverhampton) Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Dave’s One Night Stand, Lee Mack’s All Star Cast, and Frankie Boyle’s Tramadol Nights (for which he also wrote).
Edinburgh Evening News
“ROCK ‘N’ ROLL COMEDIAN. ABSOLUTELY BOXFRESH; NOTHING IS STAID ABOUT STADE…HOT FAVOURITE”
Support comes from the brilliant Vladimir McTavish who serves up a delightful feast of social observation and topical satire, seasoned with his caustic wit and presented via a platter of breakneck-pace patter. In addition to his headline appearances throughout the UK, Ireland, Holland and at the Norwegian Comedy Festival at Stavanger, Vladimir has appeared on a number of popular TV and radio shows. These have included ‘The Empire Laughs Back’ (BBC1), the football game show ‘We’re On Our Way To Wembley’ (ITV) ‘Velvet Cabaret’ (BBC Radio Scotland) and the ‘Live Floor Show’ (BBC Scotland).
