Hello. I’m
Slade Ham

Hailing from Houston, Slade Ham has performed in 60 countries on six continents. His new full-length theater special, Signal/Noise, releases soon. Ham has headlined Sirius/XM’s Best of Texas as well as the feature length The Whiskey Brothers Comedy Special. His latest special looks at what is and isn’t important in our lives, and it showcases his signature storytelling style alongside clever social commentary.

Offstage, you can read Until All the Dragons Are Dead, his collection of critically acclaimed stories. Ham also hosts the weekly Slade Ham Experiment, the wildly popular bi-weekly Whiskey Brothers Podcast, and is featured in over 30 episodes of Slade Runner, a travel series following his adventures around the globe. His live show is what does best, however. It’s stand-up all the way down.

The Whole Story

Stories are just what happened over a period of time. The characters and what happens determine whether the story is a good one or not, but any stretch you choose to look at contains a story. We often forget that while we might not be writing all the parts, we oversee the edit.   Where you choose to begin and end a story is vital. Movies would be terrible experiences if we left after the second act. Usually there’s a lot of bad stuff that happens around the end of Act Two. All is lost! Lots of...

Have You Been to Disneyland?

One of the hardest questions to answer, artistically at least, is when to listen to other people and when to trust your gut. There’s no shortage of advice. People are more than happy to share what they think you should do, and where you missed, and how you could have done better. And woe be the day that a few of these people tell you the same thing! It’s much easier than you think to start believing it. I assure you, these people rarely know anything that applies.  They want to participate in...

How I Learn

We’re tiptoeing into Christmas, and while I might be spending it in muggy Houston this year, my previous few months have seen winter weather aplenty. I spoke a few weeks ago about how I missed seeing the Northern Lights while I was visiting Norway, but I’d like to show you a bit more of the country, as well as attempt to explain why I enjoy traveling so much.Though I am an admitted college dropout, I remain an avid learner.  It took me until much later in life to realize that it wasn’t...

Walk With Me

I talk a lot about comfort zones and getting out of them, but I realize that I don’t often expound on my own adventures outside the wire.  By the time you read this I should be well on my way to being comfortable again, but as I type it, I’m in a hotel in Ft. Lauderdale and I’m anything but. I fly to the Bahamas in the morning to join a Carnival cruise for the first time.  I’ve always eschewed cruise ships, mostly for the PTSD it shakes loose from a million years ago. I’ve taken exactly one...

Some Travel Advice

I get asked for travel advice all the time. It's fine of course, it's what I do, and I love to talk about it and share my lessons learned. I was recently asked for advice by someone who was considering solo traveling as a female. I don’t have a lot of female-specific advice, but here’s a nugget or two that applies to all of us. Take a picture of where you are staying. Write down the address. Make sure you can pronounce the name. Then, go get lost. All the best places are down little side...
