Stewart Lee – Tornado and Snowflake

Tornado is the first half and bookends with a mistaken Netflix attribution of a shower of sharks raining from the sky sketch to Stewart Lee. But the portrayal of office life and the Dave Chappelle story doesn’t warrant the time taken.
Snowflake – the second half – stands up for political correctness, acknowledging the burden it now brings, cos children are growing up with a better set of values and rightness than he witnessed when growing up in the ’70s. Ricky Gervais (pre Golden Globes 2020) gets a right pasting, although being unable to say the unsayable consists of a style of retching that goes on too long. But finally, that remark that says that with Boris Johnson, the absurdity of Britain in 2020 has outstripped what comedy was ridiculing. And the latest catchphrase for the absurdity – “Let the Healing Begin“.
Guardian. Other reviews.
