Live Review: Stewart Lee – Tornado / Snowflake ★★★★★ - December 2019 Comedytowatch.com - By Alex Finch - December 5th, 2019

Back in 2005 Stewart Lee was the first person I ever saw perform at the Soho Theatre, performing his 90’s Comedian show. While I’d be very fond of stand up beforehand it was the show which gave me my passion for the art form, and one which redefined what I thought was possible from it…

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.

Time was that young comics would pore over his Comedy Vehicle programme as a lodestar of how to become successful without compromise, which is exactly what…

Snowflake/Tornado ★★★★ - November 2019 Chortle - By Steve Bennett - November 8th, 2019

The notion of status has always been crucial to Stewart Lee’s stand-up, whether it be his place in the world or how he interacts with his audience. Anyone who’s read the annotated transcripts of his shows knows the attention he pays to subtly ensuring he is always on the back foot. Despite critical acclaim and…
