A vital object,
This review is from: Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
There's some things you own which are just stuff, and some things which are really important stuff. This is definitely in the latter category for me. Not only is Stewart Lee the funniest man you can possibly listen to say the same thing twenty four times, the DVD is very much worth buying for the extras. There are six shorts of Stewart Lee discussing the subject matter of each episode with Armando Iannucci, which is enough reason for a certain demographic (or very small cult) to shell out for. Even better is the really candid commentaries with Lee himself, comedy legend Kevin Eldon (whom it's fantastic to hear from) and Paul Putner, who is charming. Unlike a lot of commentaries it is consistently interesting to hear what's behind some of the content, as although the stand up format is fairly straightforward, there are some very extravagant sketches throughout the series, and it's great to hear how they were made. It's also nice to hear the relationship between the people involved who are all funny and by the sound of it all good friends.
There's not much I can add about the stand up itself. Every line is gold, really, and Stewart Lee does the best stand up in the world.
