Stewart Lee wanted to make a show about X, but he keeps getting sidelined by Brexit and Trump, or so he claims. But really, regardless of what he’s talking about, what Lee is really interested in is playing with the audience, testing boundaries. It’s what makes his shows so interesting, and why he’s now able to sell out Brighton Concert Hall for four nights in a row.
Frequent fans will enjoy his argumentative, grumpy style, and will particularly enjoy how he ties it together in the end. Those unconvinced previously, though, will find little to like here – and no matter – he doesn’t want those people coming anyway.
