WHAT IS IT? A new full-length show from the acclaimed star of BBC2’s Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle.

WHERE AND WHEN IS IT?

Warwick Arts Centre on Thursday May 24.

WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT IT?

What can a middle aged married man, whose life now consists mainly of watching Scooby Doo cartoons with a four-year-old boy, possibly find to write comedy about? Formerly stand-up’s youthful iconoclast, Lee now gawps blankly at News 24 as Britain burns down around him, and blinks weirdly at the vast wayside retail outlets during endless journeys to and from increasingly indistinct provincial theatres. He is now trapped in Carpet Remnant World. And so are you. Some comedians use strong language.

AND WHAT DO THE CRITICS SAY?

“The funniest thing on television”  - The Guardian

“Thrilling” - Metro

“Fascinating, funny stuff” - The Times ****

“Heralds a new brand of political stand-up” - The Guardian ****

“Lee’s glittering rants blend cynicism, vanity and unbearable snobbery” -Guy Stagg, Daily Telegraph
