Stewart Lee’s Little Women - February 2020 Robin Ince's Blog - By Robin Ince - February 3rd, 2020

Theatregoers will be aware that it is a rare night when the queue for the men’s outstrips the queue for the women’s toilet. The toilet queue as a feminist issue has been discussed by Caroline Criado Perez in her book, Invisible Women. Where could I have been where the length of the comfort break queue…

Supercharged Venom - January 2020 Nottinghamshire Live - By Sean Hewitt - January 30th, 2020

So much goes on, and on so many levels, during Stewart Lee’s latest stand-up performance that it’s even harder than usual to describe. Cerebral, confrontational and laugh-out-loud funny, it’s the work of a master at his peak. Four years ago he playfully announced to a Nottingham audience that “no-one is equipped to review me”. I…

Leicester Square Theatre, 10th December 2019 - January 2020 At Home He Feels Like A Tourist - January 29th, 2020

It’s Stewart Lee. He is so far above other comedians that it makes me wonder why they bother. Of course it is a 5* review. Even when he is meandering he is a genius. Here the show was delayed by a power failure. Just more for him to get his teeth into. This double header…

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

Stewart Lee is on marvellous form with this double header. The first hour, Tornado, opens with Lee reading out the wrong blurb that a previous show of his, Comedy Vehicle, was given on Netflix. It actually describes the B-movie Sharknado, in which sharks fall from the sky. The joke is teased out through the hour,…

The best comedy shows of 2019 - December 2019 Evening Standard - By Zoe Paskett - December 16th, 2019

Stewart Lee: Tornado/Snowflake “This is Lee the clever crowdpleaser,” said Bruce Dessau in his review. Stewart Lee delivered two shows in one: Tornado, which stemmed from a Netflix listing error that confused his stand-up special with a shark Armageddon movie, and Snowflake, which plunges into the world of political correctness. Among teasing of Ricky Gervais…
