Stewart Lee: Snowflake/Tornado
Double-bill of two 60-minute sets, back-to-back nightly from “the world’s greatest living stand-up” (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.”
Age guidance: 14+
Show running time: 2 hours plus interval
