Stewart Lee

Much a-Stew About Nothing

Following the sell-out Carpet Remnant World, the acclaimed writer and comedian presents a mixed stew of new ideas in preparation for a 3rd BBC TV series. Exploring ideas from parental alcoholism, justifiable shoplifting, urban foxes, and vasectomies, to Helena Bonham Carter, Anglo Saxon epic poetry, The Big Bang and Judith Chalmers – see it live so you can begin the backlash ahead of transmission.

“Sharp, sophisticated …. Masterful” Times ★★★★

“A true artist of comedy” Grayson Perry, Observer

“A slime-pit of bitterness” Jan Moir, Daily Mail
