As part of our new series, Tom Stade tells us about good decisions, bad decisions, and complaining about the English...
1 Tell us about your Fringe show
Loading article content
It's a show about laughing about how whatever decision you make will always just lead to another decision, and whether there is such a thing is a good or bad decision.
2 Best thing about the Fringe?
If I had had to be super-honest, because I live in Edinburgh the Fringe feels like break from being on the road all the time. It's like a vacation at home.
3 Worst thing about the Fringe?
Because of all the wonderful people that come to the Fringe I fear it might take more than a half hour to get my delicious Franco's delivery pizza.
4 How many years have you been coming to the Fringe?
If I told you I might look like a Fringe veteran but it's been a lot.
5 Favourite Fringe venue?
The Assembly Rooms on George Street. Was there last year and it was such a good vibe.
6 Best Fringe memory?
If I told ya I might get arrested but I will say most of the best ones come drinking with your friends until the wee hours at the rooftop bar at the Guilded Balloon.
7 Best heckle?
A frustrated fan in the front row once said "I can't talk to you when you're like this Tom," went and got a beer, came back and said "now where were we." Funniest thing anyone has said to me during a show.
8 Craziest on stage experience?
Has to be when a drunk guy I challenged to come on stage and be funny told his best joke which was OK-funny but then tripped and fell off the stage and they needed to call a ambulance which got a way bigger laugh than his joke.
9 What's on your rider?
Seriously, rider? Do I look like Beyoncé?
10 How do you wind down after a show?
By going out, talking and having a beer with all the people I'm honoured that came down to whichever show I'm playing. I love the Stadinese comedy army.
11 What do you love about Scotland?
It's my home. That's what I love about Scotland.
12 What do you like about Edinburgh?
It's a question I've been asked many times and it's a big little city that feels like it has a small town charm. When I see someone I know on the streets of Edinburgh I'm never surprised but when I see someone I know on the streets of London I buy a lottery ticket.
13 What's the most Scottish thing you've done?
Complained about the English. It's the national pastime here.
14 What kind of jokes do a Scottish crowd seem to respond to?
Funny ones! Come on, let's not divide people. There's enough of that in the real world.
15 Favourite joke?
Punch line "Ping pong balls I thought you said King Kong's balls" ;-)
