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, Snowflakewill 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, Tornadoquestions 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.”

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