Edinburgh Festival Preview Special
July 12th @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
After the success of last year’s season, Comedy at the Con is delighted to present three nights (Thursday 5th, 12th and 19th) of warm up shows for the Edinburgh Festival with some of the biggest names in comedy, doing 50 plus minutes of their brand new show! For 12/07 we present TOM STADE + another top act —
TOM STADE STAR OF BBC ONE’S LIVE AT THE APOLLO, MICHAEL McINTYRE’S ROADSHOW & THE JOHN BISHOP SHOW
Since arriving in the UK, Canadian émigré Tom Stade has steadily earned a reputation as one of the most original and exciting stand-up talents around. He instantly made a splash on the UK circuit with his magnetic stage presence, irrepressible charm and first-class story-telling, and after years topping the bill and playing at international comedy festivals around the globe, he is now established as a leading touring act in his own right, and finds himself well on the road to being a household name.
