Comedic tornado blows hot and cold ★★★ - November 2019 The Times - By Dominic Maxwell - November 7th, 2019

Stewart Lee likes to paint himself as an outcast. So how does he cope when, even with his BBC2 series long gone, he has already sold out three months in this 400-seater with a long tour and five nights at the Royal Festival Hall to follow? When Alan Bennett is among his fans? When this…

Tornado / Snowflake review – joyously funny ★★★★★ - November 2019 The Guardian - By Brian Logan - November 7th, 2019

What is Stewart Lee’s position in the comedy marketplace? And whither his “metropolitan liberal elite” sensitivities in the post-PC age? These are the questions Lee considers in his first new live material for three years, divvied up into two sets: Tornado and Snowflake.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge in the firing line in shark-infested laugh fest ★★★★ - November 2019 The Evening Standard - By Bruce Dessau - November 7th, 2019

Lee has such a loyal following he can now callback to jokes…

Stewart Lee has the crowd in the palm of his hand right from the get-go at his Bristol Comedy Garden set on Sunday, July 7, the last performance in this year’s series. “I know what you’re thinking… Julian Assange has let himself go,” he quips, adding to the long list of lookalikes he has referenced…

The Bill Murray, Islington - May 2019 The Afterword - By Dog Faced Boy - May 24th, 2019

Our hero stumbles onto the stage with a pint, bundle of A4 with unkept hair and grey beard (Julian Assange has let himself go…..Father Abraham from The Smurfs has let himself go…..) for this hastily scheduled Work In Progress show for his Work In Progress show at the weekend. He later reveals that a visit…
