Stewart Lee: Snowflake/TornadoFri 5 March 2021
7.30pm, at the Great Hall
A double-bill of two new sets, back to back, from “the world’s best living stand-up” (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.
“Lee remains one of the best stand-ups in the country” ★★★★★ Metro
“The world’s best living stand-up comedian” Dominic Maxwell, The Times
“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
