great comedy at a great price

Just saw him a couple of weeks ago. Very clever and funny man.

Great value for a great show. The 'football' routine taking in Jimmy Hill and Gary Linekar is top drawer.

The best stand-up on the circuit today bar none.

His later more experimental DVDs can be a little inaccessible to the uninitiated, this is a little faster-paced, more like the comedy that the masses are used to, great introduction before going on to the heavy stuff

I feel the urge to share a couple of quotes but I fear that out of context they might cause a scandal... X)

He is very good at getting a lot out of not much material.

Why does he record everything in Glasgow?

smarmy unfunny poor tedious I find Cameron funnier

Saw him live at Leicester Square Theatre a few months ago - he is wonderful.

Some of his routines (available on You Tube) are absolute classics. "It's political correctness gone mad, Stu.."

He must have made millions from Jerry Springer [The Musical]...

He made very little from Jerry Springer.

Anyone who thinks he isn't funny hasn't heard the Braveheart routine from this DVD. Genius.

Brilliant deal.

This DVD's been around £3-4 for ages but still, everybody ought to give Stew a go.


Not one of my favourites, but probably in the next tier below... definitely worth 3 quid.

Used to be funny.

This guy makes me want to pull out my ears and eyes when he talks. And the **** accused Ricky Gervais of stealing jokes. Jealous much?

Yeah, I mean if Gervais were to steal jokes, surely his standup wouldn't have nose-dived.

"Are you a sardine?"

Gervais has side time and again that the comedian who most influenced him is Lee. In his latest book (which is ace btw) Lee is very complimentary about Gervais actually so methinks you may be taking tabloid journalism to its logical conclusion there a bit.

Wonderful comic. Wish there were more like him.

Given that Lee himself posted videos of Gervais in a section of his website called 'Plagiarists Corner' (and now Jack Whitehall) i dont think the tabloids are to blame for once

He wouldn't want to even if he could. Lee hates stadium comedy with a passion. Good stand-up requires feedback from the audience, only hacks running blindly off a script can make the larger venues work.

So only comics that interact with the crowd are funny? Face it, Lee probably hates stadium comedy because he could never fill one up. Theres a reason hardly anyone knows who he is

So something is only good if the masses agree on it? We aren't all sheep you know.

I think his book gives far more context than any tongue in cheek website postings (which aren't even there if they ever were).

Irrespective of if you like his style, it surprises me that you won't applaud his integrity.
