Snowflake / Tornado
Tuesday 29 March 2022, 19:30 PMTickets
This performance has been rescheduled from 20th June 2021 - all tickets remain valid.
A MESSAGE FROM STEW:- Thanks for bearing through all this with patience. In the end the only way to do this has been to move the whole second half of the tour to 2022, but I will return with a rewritten Covid-remixed show that I am already very excited about inflicting on ticket holders. When the germ cloud has cleared we will party like it's 1999! Stew

STEWART LEE SNOWFLAKE / TORNADO
After a sell-out in Spring 2020 and due to popular demand Stewart Lee returns to Sheffield City Hall with a double-bill of two new 60 minute sets, back to back nightly from “the world’s greatest living stand-up” (Times). Including new material for 2022.
The first half, Snowflake, will be heavily rewritten in the light of the two years the show has been laid off, looking at how the Covid-Brexit era has impacted on the culture war between lovely snowflakes and horrible people.
The second half, Tornado, questions Stew’s position in the comedy marketplace after Netflix mistakenly listed his show as “reports of sharks falling from the skies are on the rise again. Nobody on the Eastern Seaboard is safe.”
