Live Dates

David Johnson & John Mackay in association with Debi Allen/Curtis Brown present
STEWART LEE – SNOWFLAKE/TORNADO. NATIONAL TOUR.

Double-bill of two new 60-ish minute sets, back to back nightly from “the world’s greatest living stand-up” (Times).

Tornado questions a shipwrecked Stew’s position in the comedy marketplace after Netflix mistakenly lists his show as “reports of sharks falling from the skies are on the rise again. Nobody on the Eastern Seaboard is safe.” What is anything? Is it this?

And Snowflake questions our worth in a collapsing society which no longer shares the liberal values we have for so long been keen to be seen to espouse, in a fairy-tale landscape of winter wonder. Tons of fun!

All shows are 14+ apparently. If you are under 14 you are too immature to enjoy my swearing and farts.

COVID-19 RESCHEDULING FUN
Please see below for details of rescheduled dates as they are arranged.

On Monday 16th of March at 5.13 pm, Boris Johnson wafflingly announced that people should avoid theatres, but didn’t say that he would be closing them, like some kind of dick, which obviously led to a degree of confusion, and meant that evening’s show in Canterbury still went ahead, Johnson’s pronouncement coming out of the blue and too late in the day to address decisively.

Theatres are currently trying to reschedule some of the subsequent shows currently scheduled for March and April.
Please hang on to your tickets for any shows for now unless the venue contacts you to tell you the show is being cancelled, or offers you the chance to attend a different date. All this is currently up in the air. And please be gentle with theatres and those who manage their box offices, as they are trying to juggle the potential loss of months of programming, not just my shows, and the venues I play are on the whole run by nice people who really love theatre, music and comedy, as we largely avoid the ones run for shareholders’ benefit alone.

Please do not contact me or anyone who works for me about this. Please leave them alone and let them get on with the job of trying to reschedule the shows you want to attend. And no, I haven’t got my % of your ticket money. The theatres have all of your ticket money, and I don’t receive my % of it unless the shows happen. And I would have to pay an amount in cancellation fees that would bankrupt me if I unilaterally cancel the gigs myself. It is not possible to insure against COVID-19, so they are the best people to have it for the time being.

There is obviously a massive financial global arsequake in effect right now that means there are cash flow issues for venues, who have just seen a 93% drop in bookings nationwide. I will do the right thing by everyone in the end, obviously. You would also be helping the theatres to not go bust if you let them sit on the money you have given them for now, if you can afford to.

I am keen to reschedule all dates and, if they are in the far future in a worst case scenario, to remix the SNOWFLAKE half of SNOWFLAKE TORNADO so it addresses the comedy goldmine that is Covid-19. The shows will be filmed at some point – the arrangements to do so were in place but now need to be rejigged – but they will not made available to view until I’ve managed to visit any places that need to be rescheduled. It may end up a better show on the rebound as tragedy + time = comedy. (Too soon!)

I will reissue a complete list of dates as they stand a s a p, when the juggling is over. And I will be able to survive any temporary prevention of my ability to work live, but all those regular circuit comics, that are the beating heart of the collective energy of the world-beating British live comedy scene, are obviously taking a life-destroying battering from the current closures. And they are not considered ‘artists’ by the sort of bodies that will bail some creatives out.

There are many deserving causes in this crisis, but if you are a comedy fan, emergency relief is being crowdfunded here – https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/hecklethevirus.

Incidentally, someone claiming to be me has donated £20 to this. It isn’t me, as any donations I make to things are done anonymously to avoid looking charitable. I wouldn’t donate that much.

Don’t forget to see if any housebound folk in your ‘hood need a hand. I must go now as I have a temperature and am coughing blood into my hands.
