Stewart Lee – A Room with a Stew
© Graham Whitmore

The iconoclastic comedian is back with another residency at his regular venue. Lee's sold as many tickets at the Leicester Square Theatre to fill the O2 arena for multiple nights. 'A Room With a Stew' sees the influential comic testing ideas for the fourth series of 'Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle'. But, as this is Stewart Lee, don't expect these new routines to be messy and joke-less. Even when trying out new material, Lee's on spectacularly funny form.

Whilst described as a "work in progress" show by the cult comedian, who is preparing material for an upcoming tv series, don't expect A Room With A Stew to be dull or jokeless And even if it is, it's probably because the "toxic" comedian wants it to be. Once again Stewart Lee delights in confusing and bewitching his audience, twisting and repeating phrases and throwing in absurd pictures of surreal life, on one end threatening to smash audience members' phones but on the other constantly reminding us that he is a peace loving liberal. It's a fascinating multi layered performance like no other, lengthy and great value for money - if you're not a Daily Telegraph reader (or reviewer) you'll love it.

Stewart Lee is an insatiable, incredible, crowd-insulter: an offensive, snide, patronising, condemning, scabrous and frighteningly intelligent sodding crowd-insulter.  And I passionately love him; I ached all over my face and body after this show but I fear if I see it again as I dearly want to, I will trip that fine and tiny divide and hate him.  He accuses us of murdering Robin Williams!  He uses comic sans font on his website as a 'F*ck you'!  I hate him.  I love him.  I can't decide but it's passionate and against my will and basically he rapes your soul and you still want to thank him.

I love love love Stewart Lee and see his shows regularly. A room with a stew had lots of new material and worked very well. If you are a fan of his, go and watch it. You will not be disappointed.
