Stewart Lee

Recommended Posts

DeadMike will be all over this old news, but Stewart Lee had a two hour chat with JTTS Stuart Goldsmith on the craft. I'm not much of a Stewart fan but this is fascinating:

One of the most iconoclastic, pioneering and influential comedians in Britain, Stewart Lee has forged his post-punk ideals into a thrillingly funny live act, with the very form at his fingertips.

 

We explore the deliberately uncomfortable tension between the man and the stage persona; discuss his self-imposed exclusion from the comedy community; and investigate his unshakeable conviction that he is in fact unsuccessful.

Do Lee and Herring hate each other now? Remember the last time Lee was on RHLSTP he seemed to want to be anywhere else but on the stage, and then rumours circulated that Stew cancelled the release of TMWRNJ on DVD.

 

Shame, because I loved them as a double act. They were just ace chemistry wise. You'd think they'd be shit together now they're older, but I watched that TMWRNJ reunion gig they did a few years back and they were belting.

 

I begin to enjoy Herring and Lee more as I get older, as I see myself morphing from half decent looking thin lad into an aging mess one day at a time.

I don't know if it's just the gimmick but whenever Stew talks about Richard Herring he's pretty scathing. It's hilarious and really close to the bone and I kinda enjoy the fact that I don't know if he's shooting or not.

 

I get the feeling Stew definitely thinks he's above pedalling a nostalgia act and disagrees with Herring's approach to comedy in general but doesn't dislike him on a personal level.

Tim Wetherspoon’s booze palaces are pie-and-a-pint flophouses for the daytime diaspora of the austerity era, where inexpensively nourished customers are hypnotised by bespoke and quite brilliant regionally specific carpet designs and beguiling guest ales, before being seduced by slogan-strewn anti-EU beermats while at their most mentally pliable.
