ED FRINGE REVIEW Stewart Lee, A Room with a Stew


Stewart Lee made his name in the mid-nineties as one half of radio duo Lee and Herring, but today he is best known for his BBC Two stand-up series Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle.

A Room With A Stew is a way for Stewart Lee to test new material, most of which will make it into the fourth series of his BAFTA nominated BBC Two series, Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, which began in 2009 and will return Spring 2016 for a fourth (and possibly final) series.

The show is very much a work in progress, and with 180 minutes worth of material ready to go, Stewart only uses 70 minutes of it in Edinburgh, meaning that no two shows are ever the same.
