Comedy with class courtesy of Stewart Lee at the Tivoli - June 2022 Aberdeen Press & Journal - By Jamie WIlde - June 23rd, 2022

Stewart Lee’s new stand-up show brimmed with the unapologetic, politically skewed charm that the comedian has built his career upon. Split into a double-bill of two hour-long halves, Snowflake/Tornado revolved around two different subjects, but both interlinked well in what was a cohesive performance. The English stand-up performer, writer and director has received big praise…

“Where Does He Go From Here?” - March 2022 Impact Nottingham - By Louis Griffin - March 30th, 2022

Stewart Lee is probably the most influential comic of the last 30 years. This a fact not lost on him, or indeed his audience, as he repeatedly reminds us during Tornado, the first half of his latest show. He makes The Times’ coronation of him as “the world’s greatest living stand-up” a centrepiece of the…

Stewart Lee: Snowflake/Tornado - March 2022 The List - By Jay Richardson - March 22nd, 2022

Netflix’s arrival has reinforced the notion of a stand-up hierarchy, while complicating the perennially wretched subjects of taste and offence. Watching any comic on a subscription service implies consent to hear certain material.

What a difference two years makes. When I was last sat in Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre awaiting the arrival of Stewart Lee it was against a backdrop of impending doom. He was set to play two nights here as part of his Snowflake/Tornado tour in March 2020, but things were cut short after the first. In…

Snowflake/Tornado Live Review – Brighton Dome 25/02/22 - February 2022 Woodland Decay - By Mark Hughes - February 26th, 2022

It is the 18th of February 2020 and I am sitting in Row B of the Circle at the Brighton Dome (Dome) for the Snowflake/Tornado tour. After two years of pandemic and confusion, we reach the 25th of February 2022 and I now sit in Row A of the Circle at the Dome for the…

Snowflake/Tornado: ‘nodding in smug amusment’ - February 2022 The Boar - By Jude Wilkinson - February 23rd, 2022

Having scarcely been to a live comedy gig, Stewart Lee was surely a niche act to start on. His acerbic routine has been described by some as a parody of his alter-ego; by others as a deconstruction of stand-up comedy itself. And even as a confessed Stewart Lee fan, I must admit that his style…
