Look at that, it isn't that!

Post-Rock is a genre of music that uses the instruments of rock music to make something distinctly not rock music, bearing that in mind I would describe Stewart Lee as Post-Comedy.
The main portion of the programme is the stand-up comedy show of The Comedian Stewart Lee; an insufferable, failing, 'loony-left' liberal comedian who can't tell a joke without explaining every element of the joke and why it should be laughed at and berating the audience for not finding it funny. This is in fact a character, played by Stewart Lee.
The B-story of this programme focuses on The Comedian Stewart Lee being interrogated by Chris Morris, who points out the flaws in Stew's routines in a tone that suggests seriousness when in fact he's being just as ridiculous. This is another fiction, played by Lee and Morris.
Nothing in this show is genuine, I can't tell if it's good or bad but it certainly is.
