Award winning comedian and legend of the stand-up circuit, Stewart Lee, will make his long anticipated return to Stafford Gatehouse Theatre next month with his new, ‘Content Provider’.
Stewart Lee began stand-up in 1988 at the age of 20, and won the ‘Hackney Empire New Act of the Year’ in 1990. In 2001 he co-wrote the libretto for Richard Thomas’s Jerry Springer, The Opera, which went on to win four Olivier Awards.
His most recent live shows have been ‘Carpet Remnant World’ (2011), ‘Much A Stew About Nothing’ (2013) and ‘Room With a Stew’ (2015). He made four series of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle for the BBC which won ‘Best Male TV Comic’ and ‘Best Comedy Entertainment Performance’ at the British Comedy Awards in 2011, and a BAFTA in 2012. His fourth and final BBC series of Comedy Vehicle is now available on DVD.
Stewart is also an occasional newspaper columnist and has recently published a collection of his short prose, also entitled Content Provider.
After four years writing and performing his TV show, Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, ‘Content Provider’ is Stewart’s first brand new full-length show since the award-winning ‘Carpet Remnant World’.
