Tom Stade: What Year Was That?

Whimsy and shock humour make for easy, if not entirely guilt-free, laughs

Gripping the mic, MC-style, Stade is a salty Everyman. Saying what no one else dares say and with much better timing, he’s the buddy your wife fancies but doesn’t want around. There are a few misses, but gags about marriage, famine and national pride are good targets, and his naked whimsy coupled with shock humour make for easy, if not entirely guilt-free, laughs.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 28 Aug (not 15), 9pm, £10.50–£12 (£9–£10.50).
