Stewart Lee: Snowflake/Tornado

  • Show Information
  • Reviews

A double-bill of two new 60 minute sets, back to back nightly from “the world’s greatest living stand-up” (The 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.”


We can’t wait to welcome you to the theatre and we’re taking active steps to ensure that everyone can feel safe, relaxed and enjoy the show. Read our latest Covid measures here.

Lee remains one of the best stand-ups in the country

Metro

He makes stand-up almost a moral pursuit, … that makes the usual (and more popular) stand-ups seem crude and obvious.

If I could bring one extinct thing back to life it would be Stewart Lee’s sense of humour

We’re working on rescheduling this event. Please bear with us.

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

Tornado questions 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.”

Snowflake questions Stew’s worth in a society demolishing the liberal values he has been keen to espouse in a fairy-tale landscape of winter wonder.
