If Tom Tugendtwat thinks calling him Tom Tugendtwat is antisemitic, then basically anyone who as heard of him is an antisemite. Also he's a twat

I half believe that Stew wrote that article himself.

My money on Rich Herring writing it incognito.

Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on April 27, 2022, 12:25:08 AMWhy can't he perform if someone is filming? Always seems like an excuse to target and embarrass someone for no reason.

The light off a single phone can be really off putting to a performer apparently.

I've seen Benedict Cumberbatch, live on stage (/podium), break character to directly ask an audience member to stop filming them for that very reason.

Yea that's a very funny article that, both having a dig at stu and copying his style, well played

What theatregoers may not realise is that if a performer is audible to an audience member without amplification, then the converse is also true. The fact that performers are now routinely amplified maybe obscures this a bit but I can attest that in some acoustics it is possible to hear each and every word of someone's conversation, which is obviously very distracting.

How much direction does a standup show require?

There was this fing, yeah, and it was this man just talking on a stage for like two hours. It was mental.

It wouldn't be a filmed stand-up special without some shitty introductory scene. Maybe he rides his shark to the theatre at the start?

Is anyone credited with directing the actual stand-up for the other 200 nights?

Surprisingly (!) it's more complicated than that.

It's two evenings worth of performances cut into two sets for TV.

I'm sure there's a bit of work involved.

Presumably he'll be explaining to us why he hates women so much.

Good thing he went straight from private school to Oxford to lucrative TV work. Imagine if he had to work in Wetherspoons in Liverpool town centre on a Saturday night. He'd have a break down

Not sure if this has been posted but it's just popped up on my phone. There might be a specific Snowflake / Tornado thread:

https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/news/6842/stewart-lee-tornado-snowflake-specials-on-bbc2/

I was due to see this at Mach back in 2020 but then there was that virus going round. Have given up hope of seeing it live so pleased to see this.


I've clearly not been reading this thread.

It's not that he can't, it's that he won't. Completely fair in my opinion. If you really want to film someone on a stage, go to an Ed Sheeran concert.

Saw Tornado/Snowflake on Sunday, very good albeit thought Snowflake tailed off a bit. Enjoyed the Nick Cave impression greatly.

Big dig (harmless ultimately though) at Greg Davies seemed out-the-blue given Greg on Taskmaster last week said Bridget and he [Greg] had known each other a while...

Got 2 second row tickets for this in Chesterfield, Saturday 28/05. Can't make it. Face value obvs. Anyone interested?

DrGreggles

Had an email from Cambridge Corn Exchange yesterday telling me about their COVID protocol ahead of my visit on Tuesday.

Forgot about that... Can't bloody go now!

Just checked when I booked the original ticket: October 2019!

Ha mine were a birthday present from July 19. 2 postponements and a switch from Salford to Chesterfield later and now it's clashing with the European cup final.

Bah.  Can't make out a word of that.  It sounds like a Christoper Nolan movie.

Don't make me Basic Lee, you wouldn't like me when I'm Basic Lee.

What's so funny about Stewart Lee not getting killed? I don't find Lee's life not being brought to an end by factor's external to him the slightest bit amusing.
