5.0 out of 5 stars Better and better and better, 14 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Stewart Lee - Carpet Remnant World [DVD] (DVD)
Okay. If you're reading this you are either a fan of Stewart Lee, in which case, don't waste any time, just buy this it's fantastic. OR. You're someone who likes 'comedy' and watches the usual BBC 'stand up comics'. In which case...meh...you'd prefer McIntyre et al. Which is fine...it's refining the audience...it's like trimming the fat off a piece of fillet steak.
I have all of Stewart Lee's DVDs, including the Go Faster Stripe DVD. I have seen him live and the guy just gets more and more impressive. Yes he is sharp, yes, he is smart, yes he is uber-intelligent - and can be controversially as shocking as the next when he wants to be - but he is also extremely funny. Now a 40-something with a kid, Stewart finds himself kind of lost as to know what to do...his previous material/tours/DVDs have always come off the back of something. But now 'he has nothing' in which to dip into for material. And let's remember, Frankie Boyle said comedy shouldn't be done by anyone over 40...
Well, when you watch Stewart Lee, you're not just watching a stand up...you are...but you are watching a masterclass of stand up, performed by someone with such an incredible insight into the job that you are elevated far, far beyond just comedy.
I thank goodness he won't go 'mainstream' as this would be a massive loss. I am a massive Bill Hicks fan, in fact Bill Hicks, George Carlin and Stewart Lee are my holy trinity of stand up. But it's true what Stewart says in this DVD...Bill Hicks left a legacy of a few hours of stand up. Living stand ups have to continue writing and performing class material...and believe me Stewart does. The guy, in my eyes, truly is a genius of stand up comedy. There were bits in this routine that had me crying with laughter (the internet slaggings off). Hilarious. Genius. Master. Very clever and above all, funny.
So.....yeah...I'd recommend this.
