Hey folks, full info on Stewart's show here:

Cork Opera House is delighted to welcome back
STEWART LEE
Touring his new show 'Much A-Stew About Nothing'



Date: Sat 19 October
Time: 8.00pm
Tickets: €26, €27.50, €29 (Booking fees may apply)
Bookings: corkoperahouse.ie or 021 427 0022

The comedian toys, teases mocks and plays as he works through his carefully convoluted and playfully abrasive ideas
The Times **** (review of ‘Much A-Stew About Nothing’, Brighton Dome, 20/Sept)

Following the sell-out Carpet Remnant World, the acclaimed writer and comedian Stewart Lee presents a mixed stew of unrelated ideas at the Cork Opera House in preparation for his 2014 BBC2 TV series Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle. See it live so you can begin the backlash ahead of transmission.

A firm favourite with Irish audiences over the past few years, Stewart Lee returns for a limited number of Irish shows this October, starting in the Cork Opera House on Saturday, 19th of October.

Stewart’s stellar career includes directing the Mighty Boosh’s breakthrough Edinburgh show, Arctic Boosh (1999), multiple touring shows, comedy awards, international festival appearances and TV series including ‘Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle’ and `Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience’.

In 2001 he was invited to help write the libretto of, and direct, the composer Richard Thomas’ work, Jerry Springer The Opera, at Battersea Arts Centre. The show won four Olivier awards after its run at The National Theatre. He is also a regular radio contributor and a columnist with many publications, including The Observer.

Marvellously funny: mordant, thoughtful and crafted

He was brilliant. Wonderful clever stuff as usual. Elenor Tiernan was the support and did very well.

Lee was excellent. But the support was dreadful. Exactly the kind of comedy that you don't expect (or want) to see when you go to a Lee show. Baffling why they would bother with a support act in the first place. Maybe that was down to management, agency?

I saw Elenor Tiernan a few weeks back in vicar st doing a support slot and thought she was excellent tbh. Expected her to be shite when she came out and her first joke was terrible but once she settled down she was brilliant

I wouldn't go that far tbh, once she settled she did ok,


Stewart Lee was very good, but that is to be expected

Jesus Christ, it would have been better if there was no support than having Elenanor Tiernan up there. She is absolute dross. One saving grace is that it wasn't Maeve Higgins.

Good show from Stew. Not as good as his "Carpet Remnant World" show in the Opera House last time round. I know it's only a trial run for material for the next series of "Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle" but it did feel a little flat in places. It'll be polished before it hits TV, I'm sure. This should have been reflected in the ticket price at little. But hey, he has to live too.

What was really head-wrecking (and he mentioned it) was people casually flicking on their phones during his set, texting etc, illuminating the audience.

Stew is playing Dublin and Belfast in May.

No Cork date. This is probably down to the piss poor turn out the last two times he's been here.

Shame really but you can't blame him.

The rest of the tour (inc. Dublin) is nearly sold out.

21st May - 8.30pm - A ROOM WITH A STEW, Vicar Street, DUBLIN
22nd May - 8pm - A ROOM WITH A STEW, Grand Opera House, BELFAST
23rd May - 8pm - A ROOM WITH A STEW, Grand Opera House, BELFAST
