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…

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

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…

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…
