Stewart Lee - Snowflake/Tornado

Double-bill of two new 60 minute sets, back to back nightly from “the world’s greatest 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.

Snowflake / Tornado is part of The Lowry’s Week 53 festival in 2020.
“There’s no-one else to touch him,” Mark Wareham, Mail On Sunday ★★★★★

“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

 “The opposite of what really good comedy should be” Toby Young, Radio 4
