STEWART LEE – CONTENT PROVIDER (16+)
Swansea Grand Theatre
Fri 9 Feb, 8pm
Join us at Swansea Grand Theatre for Stewart Lee’s highly anticipated new comedy show on Fri 9 Feb, 8pm

Stewart Lee is a generally considered to be a master of anti-populist comedy. Indeed, he certainly pulls no punches about what he thinks about the current big hitters of the scene, pouring vitriolic scorn on many of them as part of his own shows. Consequently The Times has described him as “the comedian’s comedian, and for good reason”.

Lee came to prominence in the mid-‘90s with comedy partner, Richard Herring, after appearing together at the Edinburgh Festival in 1987. The pair went on to work alongside other alternative comedy figures such as Armando Lannucci and Rebecca Front, before becoming cult comedy heroes as a result of the BBC 2 series, Fist Of Fun and This Morning With Richard Not Judy. Lee co-wrote and co-directed Jerry Springer: The Opera, which eventually became a West-End smash.

Now back 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.

Tickets are available at our Box Office on 01792 475715 or online at www.swanseagrand.co.uk for £23.50*.
*All tickets include a 50p Restoration Fund contribution. Online booking fee applies.
