Other appearances include: Mock the Week, the Birmingham leg of (whilst he lived in Wolverhampton) Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Dave's One Night Stand, Lee Mack's All Star Cast, and Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights (for which he also wrote). In March 2011 and December 2012, he appeared as a guest star on Soccer AM.
Stade appeared on Frankie Boyle's stand-up show The Boyle Variety Performance in August 2012, and recorded a live DVD at the Bloomsbury Theatre, London (released in autumn 2013). His 2013 UK tour show was called Totally Rocks.
