=Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh ★★★★ - August 2015 Three Weeks - By Kieran Scott - August 13th, 2015

“No one is equipped to review me,” suggests Stewart Lee, who can’t help but continue to have a dig at the press – and, more specifically, the Telegraph. He spends time tearing apart his audience for being “lacklustre”, while humorously stating that the show would be better at The Stand with his proper fans. Lee,…
