Painfully funny to watch - January 2022 - By Simon Court - January 19th, 2022

Stewart Lee‘s distinctive style and appealing delivery were in plentiful supply at Oxford Playhouse this week after a two year absence, his deadpan, weary and resigned delivery keeping us permanently chuckling behind our masks. Taking this opportunity to not only perform again, but mix up two previous shows (SNOWFLAKE and TORNADO,) Lee also managed to…

Two sublimely subversive sets from “the world’s greatest living stand-up” - January 2022 - By Gabrielle Brown - January 18th, 2022

Collected positive tweets for Comin’ Over Here by Asian Dub Foundation feat Stewart Lee (all profits to Kent Refugee Action Network). It was the UK’s most downloaded/purchased song on Brexit day, though Wham’s Last Christmas beat it in the streaming charts which are for losers. Thanks for buying it if you did.

Coronavirus Kent: Review of the last theatre show in Kent as venues shut due to the pandemic - March 2020 Kent Online - By Ed McConnell - March 17th, 2020

I phoned ahead to check the show was still on – it was only sensible given the Prime Minister’s ambiguous update earlier in the day. The woman who answered assured me it was, but in honesty didn’t seem entirely convinced herself. So, it was against this backdrop of impending doom that we travelled to Canterbury‘s…
