The BBC looks set to broadcast Stewart Lee's latest stand-up show, Content Provider.

Writing in his latest newsletter, the stand-up comedian revealed that his show dates on the 12th and 13th April at the Palace Theatre in Southend are being set aside for filming.

The BBC has previously screened four series of Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle.

The stand-up says the filming is also for a DVD and download version of his show to be captured. Tickets are now available for these two shows.

Referencing the Southend performances, the comedian's newsletter statement simply says: "These are filming dates for a DVD/DL/BBC B'CAST".

Content Provider is the comedian's first stand-up show since his award-winning Carpet Remnant World . He has been performing versions of this new show live since 2016, with the tour set to finish with a run at the Southbank Centre at the end of April. The blurb says: "Join him on these special evenings as he finally abandons two hours of monetisable material and performs the show for the very last time. When it's gone it's gone." Tickets
