The most sophisticated comedian at work in the UK today, his painstaking and hilarious deconstruction of the hypocrisy of other comedians and their craft is an intelligent joy. Revered by his peers in the know and certainly not by those on the end of his barbed comedy, see the pertinent soundbites on the poster for the book of the tour. The 41st best stand up comic ever and champion of ‘political correctness’ returns to Birmingham in 2017 and is, according to the Daily Mail, ‘A slime-pit of bitterness’. Never shy of tackling thorny subjects his articulate and disarming almost ‘blokey’ manner belies the intellectual depth of his art. Always a pleasure to welcome Lee home and we cant wait to see him again.
Mon 27 Mar to Tue 28 Mar 7.30pm at Symphony Hall, Broad Street, Birmingham B1 2EA £25 www.thsh.co.uk/
