Teetering on the brink of the “elder statesman” phase of his career, masterful comic Tom Stade reflects on surviving the pandemic due to his strong family unit and his natural impish inclination not to take anything too seriously.
We talk about the relationship between political correctness and deliberately being inappropriate, hitting critical mass as a touring comic, and the long-term relationship with fans that develops after decades in the business.
We also discuss his theory that he’s held back professionally by his stoner reputation, unpick whether charisma can be learnt, and for the first time ask “are you ever not happy?”
