Stewart Lee: Basic Lee

  • Show Information
  • Reviews

Returning to Exeter Northcott after selling out in 2023!

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. “The world’s greatest living stand-up” (The Times).

★★★★

“Basically, basic Lee is better than most”

The Telegraph

★★★★

“Basically, Basic Lee is very funny”

The Times

★★★★★

“Basically, back-to-basics Basic Lee is anything but”

Mail on Sunday

“It’s brilliantly choreographed, razor-sharp and laugh-aloud hilarious, but anything but basic”

Louder Than War

Age Guidance 14+
