Jan – July 2022; SNOWFLAKE/TORNADO. NATIONAL TOUR.
After the abrupt end of the covid-cancelled sell-out tour of Snowflake/Tornado in March 2020, Stewart Lee, “the world’s greatest living stand-up” (Times), returns to more than 60 towns and cities in the UK.
The tour, a double bill of two 60-minute sets, back-to-back nightly, will include new material for 2022.
The Snowflake half has been heavily rewritten in the light of the two years the show has been laid off, looking at how the Covid-Brexit era has impacted on the culture war declared on lovely woke snowflakes by horrible people.
The Tornado half questions Stew’s position in the comedy marketplace after Netflix mistakenly listed his show as “reports of sharks falling from the skies are on the rise again. Nobody on the Eastern Seaboard is safe.”
All shows are 14+ apparently. If you are under 14 you are too immature to enjoy my swearing and farts.
August 2022; Edinburgh Fringe.
Two shows at the 2022 Fringe; A work-in-progress at The Stand at 10am and a final go on the Snowflake half of Snowflake/Tornado at The New Town Theatre at 1.50pm daily through August.
Sept – Dec 2022; Basic Lee. London Run.
I will be launching a new Stand-up tour, BASIC LEE, in the Autumn of 2022.
BASIC LEE – After a decade of ground-breaking high concept shows involving overarched interlinked narratives, massive sets and enormous comedy props, Lee enters the post-pandemic era in streamlined solo stand-up mode.
One man, one microphone, and one microphone in the wings in case the one on stage breaks.
Pure. Simple. Classic. Basic Lee.
