Writer/director Ti West’s filmography is populated mostly with dark genre fare of the thrilling and/or horrific variety, but while they typically have moments of humor you’d be hard-pressed to call any of them comedies.

Imagine the unflinching demeanor and elegance of a peacock, then combine it with the self-assured confidence bestowed upon us by our mighty friend alcohol...and you're still not even close. Simply put, Tom Stade is the product of an innate love of comedy, a willingness to try anything and an attitude that can take as much as it leaves. When this man retires from the stage he leaves you hungry... hungry for comedy; hungry for realism; but above all, hungry for the cold hard truth.
In Tom's routines no stone is left unturned; no avenue to dark...and this Canadian born funnyman knows this. Heck, it's why - in just four years - the guy has gone from recognisable face to one of the UK's most popular comedians, selling out venues across the country.
