Lee Kyle Stand Up Show
Disco Twix – Stand Comedy Club, Newcastle – 22nd November 2022
It took Lee Kyle a long time to realise he might be an oddball.
He was sat under a tree in a cemetery, in that tree were thirteen pairs of shoes he’d thrown into said tree. Sat next to him was a lass who used to be in Byker Grove who might be his sister, and he was playing with a Guinea Pig he accidentally owns. He was in his forties.
This is a show about trying to come to terms with weirdness, about being a feminine heterosexual man and how growing up on a Jarrow council estate shaped the idea that he should hide his oddness.
It’s about how ‘You can’t say anything these days’ which, in his typically firebrand way, he’s turned on its head by saying what he wants. It’s just that what he wants to say is aggressively left wing and very much the sort of thing that the free speech lot seem to disagree with.
This is a show that is personal but also wide ranging, a show that contains angry politics and personal doubt, a show about gender but from a very different perspective than we are told straight white men from the North East would have.
Lee is the best comedian that hardly anyone has heard of, with a cult following that really should be bigger. He has a knack for killer routines and a singular style of delivery that wins over audiences everywhere.
This show will be filmed for release.
Still not convinced? Don’t take his word for it, these folks have said nice things about him…
