(and a half)Tom Stade was married seventeen years ago in a white chapel in las vegas in sandals and a cowboy hat to a woman he has known for three months. At the beginning of the show, he plays the dodgy nineties footage of them (actually) getting married - I wonder how his wife feels about this. Luckily the minister has a silly line about trees that fills the silence that the too-long introduction produces.
Eventually he comes on stage. His not so original topic - marriage after seventeen years. He picks out some couples and asks them to agree with him as he goes through the usual subtopics: lack of sexlife, the turn-off of getting a mortgage, pretty hilarious for those involved but what about the rest of us?
There is no doubting that Tom Stade is a funny guy, his deep and slurry Canadian voice with no limit on his use of the f bomb created giggles all over the packed Cabaret bar. But I feel it is necessary to say, only once was he applauded for his wit. This is when he went completely off the topic of marriage and back to his great politically incorrect self. I like offensive comedy, you could tell that the crowd like it too and the way he speaks of his family is still pretty shocking but by putting a face on the normally preverbal wife meant I just ended up feeling guilty for when I laughed.
Stay as offensive and carefree as you can Tom and don’t let us know that you have a wife and kids and buy things from groupon as it kind of ruins your badboy persona (actually the groupon bit was quite funny).
Tom Stade Totally Rocks!
