Following his sell out season last year, the acclaimed writer and comedian Stewart Lee presents a vegetable stew of brand new work in preparation for his 2011 TV series for one night only at Huntingdon Hall on October 13 at 8pm.


Stewart Lee began stand-up at the age of 20 in 1988, winning the Hackney Empire new act of the year award in 1990. In the 90's he contributed to various BBC Radio comedy shows, including Fist of Fun and On The Hour, with Steve Coogan and Chris Morris, performed as a stand-up almost nightly on the London circuit, and co-created four series for BBC2 with Richard Herring.

Stewart directed the Mighty Boosh's breakthrough Edinburgh show, Arctic Boosh (1999), Simon Munnery's Golden Rose Of Montreux nominated BBC2 show, Attention Scum, (2000), and a revival of Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio (Underbelly 2007).  In 2001 he was invited to help write the libretto of, and direct, the composer Richard Thomas' developing work, Jerry Springer The Opera, at Battersea Arts Centre. The show won four Olivier awards after its National Theatre run, though it was prevented from enjoying any commercial future by the pressure group, Christian Voice. 

Stewart's subsequent three stand-up shows, 2004's Stand-Up Comedian,  2005’s 90's Comedian and 2007's 41st Best Stand-Up Ever, gradually built his live audience and contributed to BBC2's decision to commission his 2009 series, Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle . This was followed by a new stand-up show, If Your Prefer A Milder Comedian Please Ask For One (2009), and a new series of Comedy Vehicle is due in 2011. See it live so you can begin the backlash ahead of transmission.
