Stewart Lee is coming to Bristol Beacon in 2024

Posted on: 19 May 2023

After a sell-out show at The Bristol Hippodrome in 2022, one of the UK’s most distinguished comics Stewart Lee is returning with his acclaimed stand-up show, ‘Basic Lee’.


Stewart Lee’s ‘Basic Lee’ tour comes to Bristol Beacon on Saturday 2 March 2024.


One man, one microphone and one microphone in the wings in case the one onstage breaks. Stewart Lee is going back to basics, entering the post-pandemic era in streamlined solo stand-up mode. You do not want to miss this!


Tickets for this show are live now and can be found HERE.



Known for his unique use of repetition, deadpan delivery and breaking the fourth wall, Stewart Lee is one of the country’s most renowned stand-up comedians. 


Beginning his career in the late 1980s, Lee was one half of the double act Lee and Herring with fellow comedian Richard Herring. Originally writing material for Chris Morris’ On The Hour and The Day Today, the duo went on to become TV regulars.


In 2001, Lee co-wrote and directed the hit West End musical, Jerry Springer: The Opera, a critically acclaimed yet controversial piece that irreverently tackled issues around Christianity featuring extensive profanity, and surrealism – even featuring a troupe of tap-dancing members of the Ku Klux Klan.


Since then, Lee has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s favourite comics, something of a comedian’s comedian. In addition to his award-winning television work with the likes of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, he has created various ground-breaking stand-up shows and even written extensively for prestigious newspapers.


After over a decade of ground-breaking high-concept shows involving overarched interlinked narratives, massive sets and enormous comedy props, Stewart Lee’s ‘Basic Lee’ tour sees the comedy monolith take it back to basics.



In addition to Bristol, Stewart Lee’s 2024 ‘Basic Lee’ tour will see the comedian drop by massive venues in Cheltenham, Yeovil, Bath, Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Leicester, Harrogate, Coventry, Northampton, Sheffield, Darlington, Cardiff, Salford and more. Find out more here.


Stewart Lee will perform at Bristol Beacon’s Beacon Hall on Saturday 2 March 2024 – grab your tickets to the show, HERE.
