“Astounding” comedian Tom Stade has been named as the headliner for The HaHa Club’s next show in Buckshaw Village.
The Canadian is a well-known face on television, appearing in Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow.
He has just returned from a triumphant run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and had a critically-acclaimed DVD release.
Bryan Malcolm, who runs The HaHa Club, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have Tom Stade performing.
“We had Tom at our Burscough Wharf gig in February and he was astounding.
“The guy is on form and he is undoubtedly the best comedian in the country at the moment.”
It is a big score for The HaHa Club, which is also organising an Edinburgh Fringe preview show, with Justin Moorhouse and Jason Cook, at Southlands High School on Wednesday, June 3.
And Tom is following hot on the heels of Justin Moorhouse, as he provided plenty of laughs last month when the comedy night finally made its return to Buckshaw Village Community Centre. Bryan said: “It’s good for The HaHa Club and good for Buckshaw. It’s a massive coup.
“It’s a big thing for us and we have worked really hard to get the big acts.”
Tom will be joined on Saturday, May 24, by special guest Danny McLoughlin.
He appeared appeared on Dave TV’s Comedy Showcase.
Support comes from Catherine Scott and Lee Bennett, and Bryan will be the host.
Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm. Tickets: £10 at www.hahacomedyclubs.co.uk or by calling 07931 155887.
