More Information on Stewart Lee – Snowflake/Tornado

Double-bill of two new 60 minute sets, back to back nightly from “the world’s greatest living stand-up” (Times). Including new material for 2022.

The first half, Snowflake, will be 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 between lovely snowflakes and horrible people.

The second half, Tornado, 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.”


“Lee remains one of the best stand-ups in the country” ★★★★★ Metro

“The world’s best living stand-up comedian” Dominic Maxwell, The Times

“There’s no-one else to touch him,” Mark Wareham, Mail On Sunday ★★★★★

 “He makes stand-up almost a moral pursuit, … that makes the usual (and more popular) stand-ups seem crude and obvious.” Alan Bennet, London Review Of Books.  

“Proper, vicious prejudice – a self-proclaimed inhabitant of the moral high ground Sarah Vine, Daily Mail

“A pot-bellied Bernard Manning for snowflakes” Tony Parsons, The Sun

 “If I could bring one extinct thing back to life it would be Stewart Lee’s sense of humour.”  Frankie Boyle, BBC2

“The opposite of what really good comedy should be” Toby Young, Radio 4


Produced by John Mackay in association with Debi Allen / Curtis Brown.

This show has been re-written and rescheduled from March 2020.
