I first saw Stewart Lee on 'Fist of Fun' eleven years ago. Since I've moved to the States and have been bombarded with cruddy sitcoms and revered stand ups who rely on conventional jokes and half-assed impressions it is refreshing to see a comic who derives humor from dissecting all of the monotony and hypocrisy of mainstream culture. Anyone with any degree of affection for the offbeat or the genuinely insightful owes it to themselves to buy this DVD. Even though I live in a culturally deprived country I have a fairly eclectic taste in humor and can honestly herald Stewart Lee as a comic genius above many of his contemporaries. He is the first comedian I have encountered that has genuinely brought comedy into the realm of art, and anyone who has ever heard his 'Pea Green Boat' can attest to this. Buy this DVD, you will NOT be disappointed. You will also wet yourself.
