A Room with a Stew is a brand new live show with fresh material in preperation for Stewart’s next BBC2 series of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle. Throughout this extensive season, the self-described ‘middle-aged comedian’ promises to explore new subjects, try-out brand new material and cut and add sections at will.

Urine, the Union Jack and the ghosts of dead comedians are just some of the subjects Stewart explores, and those attending the shows between 21st September and 6th December (or between 2nd and 8th January) get to see it all live months ahead of transmission.

We’re offering readers of the Velvet Onion the chance to win a pair of tickets to see the A Room with a Stew on a choice of selected dates. To enter, all you have to do is answer this simple question.
