A true classic,
This review is from: Stewart Lee - Carpet Remnant World [DVD] (DVD)
As a massive fan of stand-up, this is genuinely one of the best comedy films I have ever seen. Not only is 'Carpet Remnant World' genuinely, stomach-rupturingly funny and also unbelievably razor-sharp and incisively clever for the duration of its 2 hours, but Lee's ability to deconstruct jokes, and indeed the very art of comedy, is like nothing I've ever witnessed before. It's a real treat and truly exposes a lot of the most popular comics in the land as the lazy frauds they are. I watched this DVD in absolute awe..and also in tears of laughter!! The word genius is bandied around way too liberally nowadays, however Stewart Lee is a true genius of comedy. This DVD offers you all the arguments as to why.

You nailed it, Ian. Long may Stewart Lee go on crafting such performances. He is my Mozart of comedy right now. He proves the axiom "the best is the enemy of the merely good".
