Funnier Than Del Boy Falling Through The Bar,
This review is from: How I Escaped My Certain Fate (Paperback)Alternative Comedian Stewart Lee tells of how he quit stand-up for several years before returning to critical acclaim in this beautifully written, thoughtful and in-depth memoir full of lovely one-liners. The footnotes are a complete joy!
Excellent value-for-money, it contains detailed analysis of the transcripts from three of his recent shows (Stand-up Comedian; '90s Comedian & 41st Best Stand-Up Ever - all available on DVD if you haven't yet seen them) along with a number of interesting appendices containing articles and other works. Halfway through you learn the significance of the cover design.
Highly recommended if you enjoy intelligent non-mainstream comedy or just want to know more about the thought processes behind putting together a successful stand-up routine in Lee's inimitable style.
Or if you are a sardine.

You are mistaken. In terms of timing, camera angle, acting and direction it was the chandelier scene, or maybe it was Trigger explaining the history of his broom or maybe it was Trigger always calling Rodney, Dave.......
