Snowflake/Tornado

Part of Leicester Comedy Festival.

After a sell out in Spring 2020 and due to popular demand Stewart Lee returns to De Montfort Hall.

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 declared on lovely woke snowflakes by 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.

"There’s no-one else to touch him." ***** Mark Wareham, Mail On Sunday

"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
