Dwight Slade has the privilege of being a comedy legend in American stand up. At 18, he became one of the youngest performers to perform at the famous Comedy Store. In the 1980’s, Slade established himself as the premier stand-up opening concerts for Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Beck and Dave Chappelle. Radio station KXL-AM billed him as “The Northwest’s Most Dangerous Mind” as he became a noted talk radio personality who used humour instead of rage to engage listeners. He released two comedy CD’s on Humor Ink recordings, “Weird State,” and “Shut-up.” Slade has appeared on HBO’s “Best of the US Comedy Arts Festival” and made an appearance on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. Slade’s stand-up has gained international stature after earning a five star review at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival and appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.
