Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Tom Stade Natural Born Killer (Canada)

Best of British presents

Tom Stade Natural Born Killer (CAN)

The legendary Canadian superstar returns with a killer new hour!

Tom is a master of his craft, unabashed and mischievous with an inate ability to connect to audiences. This is a a show for iGens, Millennials, Gen X’s, Baby Boomers and beyond.

Join Tom as he toys with the complexities of our ever-changing world, muses on societal conundrums and navigates his way around progressiveness and pronouns – not to mention 27 years of marriage and adult kids who refuse to respect him (and like to remind him just how dumb they think he is).

Serially hilarious, he’s wowed sell-out audiences across the UK for the past two decades and remains one of the most compelling and instinctive stand-ups around.

Ladies, gentlemen and non-binaries, please welcome to the stage, the one and only – Tom Stade.
