"The cleverest, funniest, most cliché-free comedian on the circuit" Ricky Gervais After four years working on Richard Thomas' Jerry Springer - The Opera, Stewart Lee returns to stand-up in search of clarity, self-respect and immediate sensual and intellectual gratification. Captured here for Stewart's first ever live DVD release, Stand Up Comedian documents the strongest set of his career, culminating in a sell-out Spring 2005 tour. See "one of the top three or four living stand-ups" (Time Out) sweat his way through over an hour of smart and subtle bone-dry comedy. Stand-Up Comedian was recorded live in the notoriously comedy-hostile city of Glasgow, where a terrified Des O'Connor once sold advertising space on the soles of his shoes.
