Stewart Lee treats comedy like an art form. That is why he is better than any other stand-up comedian around.
I’ve seen clips of Stewart Lee doing stand-up on YouTube however I’ve never seen a full live show of his until I got a hold of his first stand-up DVD, which is brilliant. Stewart Lee is unlike any other comedian I’ve seen before. He doesn’t rely on cheap jokes in order to squeeze every last laugh from a member of the audience.

This is my overall rating for Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge, which I owned on DVD for many years but never watched until now. Before this, I watched/rewatched all of I’m Alan Partridge.

The bottom line is Alan Partridge is one of the greatest comedy characters of all time.

Brass Eye uses the current affairs format to satirise the way the media portrays certain subjects like drugs and sex. As I was watching all seven episodes this evening, I was thinking to myself - How did Chris Morris get away with everything he said and did on the programme? Well... the answer might surprise you. Channel 4, who aired the first series in 1997 and the special in 2001, defended the programme’s content. This was obviously before Channel 4 became…
I don’t want to throw around words that are overused when reviewing films. Words like ‘great’ and masterpiece’. The War Zone is certainly a masterpiece but I don’t only want to call it a masterpiece. What the film does is capture a feeling so personal to myself and possibly other people who live in England. It’s a mixture of boredom, loneliness, depression, numbness, shock and anger. Yet the film isn’t really about those things. It’s about something far more darker.…
