Stewart Lee: Snowflake/Tornado

Part of Comedy

This event has been rescheduled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis: all tickets are valid for the new date.

Following a sold-out London season, ‘the world’s greatest living stand-up’ (The Times) brings his new show to Southbank Centre.

Tornado questions Lee’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 Lee’s worth in a society demolishing the liberal values he has been keen to espouse in a fairy-tale landscape of winter wonder.
