Stewart Lee nearly killed onstage

Well, probably not, but...

I saw Stew's Snowflake/Tornado show last night in Bexhill, and (spoilers ahead)...


The huge prop shark that is supposed to fall around Stew when he sits down at the end of the show - Buster Keaton-style - malfunctioned and fell too early, when Stew was still stood at the front of the stage. It missed him by mere inches and could at the very least have really hurt him, especially if it bonked him on the head.

Poor Stew. I think he was a bit freaked out. A lot of the audience thought it was deliberate, I reckon, because those kind of self-sabotaging hijinks are entirely possible with him.

I wonder if he'll now refer to this incident on the rest of the tour, and how it will be incorporated if so? Would be very curious to hear from people attending future shows.

Other than that, it was a great show.

I reckon if there was a way to die, 'because a shark fell on him' would be how he'd want to go.


I saw someone make a meme about this elsewhere and assumed it was a joke. Glad to know he's okay.

Did it make him jump?

Stewart Lee has jumped (at) the shark.


My job is to check this shark is safely installed above the comedian Stewart Lee.


Yes, it's correctly secured.


Prop comedy is a dangerous game, Stew.

Seriously though, that must have been very frightening. How did he respond to it? Did he stay in persona?

Stewart Lee survives a shark attack.


He's only just shaken off a persistent herring.

Of course, they're all fallen sharks by the time I'm finished with them

I'm fucking off, no need to push!

I saw him last week, after two years of cancelled shows. I'd have been quite narked if he got sharked before I finally saw the show.

If he or the venue don't own the prop, presumably it's a loan shark.


thats what you lot like isnt it sharks falling

[30 seconds of grimacing]



He should have said to it, he should have said, "get back in the sea!  You finned cunt."  Like his catchphrase.

The shark thought Stewart was cress.


All the different flavours of crisps...



If you prefer a closer shark impact please ask for one

Which, as you probably know, was directed by Steven Spielberg, who also worked on Indiana Jones with producer George Lucas, who also produced American Graffiti, Star Wars, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and Quillow.


Furious that I now know the gag in this show.


"are you a sardine?" No I'm a shark


Actually I think you'll find it was only the CHARACTER of the comedian Stewart Lee that shat his pants on stage, not Stew himself.
