Tornado / Snowflake review – Britain’s finest comedian in action - January 2020 Reaction.Life - By Ben Kelly - January 11th, 2020

In the last decade, Stewart Lee has been at the peak of his powers. Increasingly over this time he has channelled his comedy through a carefully constructed onstage persona, a parody of himself. The embittered, envious comic going through mid-life crisis, brimming with self-regard, obsessed with his own status and resentful and contemptuous of his…

Ricky Gervais and Phoebe Waller-Bridge get it in the neck ★★★★★ - January 2020 i News - By Veronica Lee - January 3rd, 2020

Comedy review: Stewart Lee, Leicester Square Theatre, London ★★★★ - December 2019 The Sunday Times - By Stephen Armstrong - December 1st, 2019

Stewart Lee’s previous stand-up show, Content Provider, is one of my top 10 sets of all time. His follow-up, Tornado/Snowflake, lumbers a little under the weight of expectation, but it’s an enviable load to carry. This is ostensibly two shows divided by an interval, but the distinction between them is a little blurred. Both spend…
