Quote from: kitsofan34 on January 17, 2023, 02:37:02 PMI think his whole schtick is so worn out and tired now that I'll need to miss at least one tour before it feels even remotely fresh.
Quote from: DJ Bob Hoskins on January 17, 2023, 04:10:41 PMI saw his current show (Basic Lee) back in November at the Leicester Square Theatre and thought it was excellent. I reckon it's one of his funniest sets for a while; better than Snowflake/Tornado.Without spoiling anything: yes, his routine follows a similar formula to his previous material, but this show felt a bit more playful and loose (though it was still a work in progress when I saw it so that may have helped). Anyway, I found it really funny.Got to chat to him for a minute or two at the merch stand afterwards and he was lovely.

Quote from: Ray Travez on January 18, 2023, 09:07:51 AMPlease update the thread if you see he's added tickets. I'll do the same. Can't believe he won't do at least two dates in Leeds at some point.

Quote from: bgmnts on January 23, 2023, 08:25:56 AMSeeing him tomorrow, and I read it's about 2 hours 25 minutes long, kicking off at 19.45. Annoyingly, welsh trains are so fucking shite that the last train that day s 21.55, and it's about a 10/15 minute walk away. So either going to have to slink off 10 minutes before the end or watch the whole thing and wait til fucking 00.30 for the meat train.
Quote from: non capisco on January 18, 2023, 09:09:11 AMSpoiler alertHe keeps trying to read a joke he's affected to have written off a bit of paper that starts 'JK Rowling, when she's writing stories about a magical wizard boy or something, writes with her real name but when she's writing her thrillers, she writes with a man's name' and then reacts to the laughter of recognition from the audience that it's going to be about her terfery with increasingly exasperated protestations "No, what you seem to think it'll be about, it's not about THAT!" and in his multiple attempts to get the joke out goes on a load of tangents that reference the shit he got from terfs and Linehan (not named but referenced on the night I went as "some mad shaking man shouting at me in his attic"). His multiple attempts to tell the joke and not get past "she writes with a man's name" was classic repetitive Stew and had me in tears of laughter. [close]
