Customer Review

on 2 August 2010
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.
