ALSO - I'll be in LAAAAANNNNDAAAANNNNN town, so look out for the Irish guy.
please just ask him to never play guitar and sing during his show again
and the Bob Dylan/observational comedy song was brilliant
not ^this, basically
...ANY JOKE, not a story that just goes on and on and on forever.
Just joking, I like Stewart Lee. Ask him something about career peaks and troughs - multi million audience TV show in the early 90s followed by...
...then international hit Jerry Springer The Opera followed by...
Also, ask him about his rivalry with Patrick Marber.
it's the perfect opportunity.
Fist Of Fun Series 1, despite only being on sale through online order and Richard and Stewart's gigs, has made back what they spent on the rights after less than a month, and series 2 and hopefully TMWRNJ will follow.
He would DEFINITELY prefer michael.
I'm pretty sure that (personality wise) I'm anti-everything he chooses to represent.
I think I'm staying around Trafalgar Square anyway, where's a decent place to go for a jar afterwards does anyone know? I'll be on my lonesome but I can make acquaintances quicksharp.
best one in that area off the top of my head would be The Angel at the end of Denmark Street. it's a sam smiths.
Not sure I'll be finished the interview by then!
It's next to Ronnie Scotts. You can get a cocktail served in a teapot.
or anything about the major themes of his routines ie 'alternative comedy' vs michael mcintyre or anything
i realise that leaves not much obvious
but that is your mission
mostly because of the 'There are no Scottish women' skit.
'He has one vague, but slowly growing, plan to go right out on a limb by touring his version of Michael McIntyre's current stand-up show in its entirety. "It would be verbatim, word-for-word, gag by gag like some weird recreation," he says, cracking up at the very thought. Why on earth would he want to do that? "Oh, just to see if I could inject any paranoia and menace or even personality into it, if I could turn the blandness of it into the thoughts of someone on the very edge of madness."
I know he does his version of observational comedy in 'If You Prefer a Milder Comedian...'', but it was the 'verbatim'' part that interest me.
just hope he doesn't roll his eyes at another McIntyre mention. Going to some pub with him apparently after his gig, I'm hoping my Irishness can coax him into tearing up London with me. But I imagine he'll politely leave after half an hour.
Really, really boring question but I'm eager to know.
Eitherway...good luck with is drake. Hope it goes well!
summer 2012, he mentions it in intro to the "EP"
If he ever gets bored or tired of routines from performing them extensively for months on end?
Always wanted to know after looking at his schedule
Things you could ask:
the bit in Comedy Vehicle where the guy walked out during his song. How livid was he? It sort of makes the episode, but it must smart.
Those wonderful interview scenes with Iannucci make the show. Any plans to do something like that again? A radio show of it could be great.
Has he got another series since the Bafta recognition?
Why isn't Kevin Eldon infamous?
Did he enjoy that Yo La Tengo gig at Bush Hall as much as I did?
How much of his hatred of Macintyre, Paddy McGuinness and the Russells is real vs an act.
I think I read somewhere that he and Herring helped write the radio show version of The Day Today, but when it went to TV they got left out. Was that annoying? I see that Chris Morris script edited Cvehicle so they must still be friends?
That scene in Partridge where Alan meets his mental fan and drinks out of an Ariel liquid ball was based on a Stewart Lee story I think too?
Wasn't there also someone on here ages ago who slagged him off and he wrote a thing about it?
so I think it was more a case of them leaving the writing team. But they're all pals again now. Except for Patrick Marber probably.
the "mental fan" was Christian O'Connell!
Peter Baynham wrote the story into Partridge based on Stewart being invited to go back to someone's flat after a gig and finding pictures and articles about himself all over the walls, and it later turned out one of the people who lived in the flat was O'Connell.
he seems to be including increasingly more self-hijacking bits in his shows these days. Dunno
If he's going to do a dulux advert now that he's an award winning bourgeios sellout?
Actually it's good thus far, in a hotel somewhere round Trafalgar Square. Looking forward to rambling post-Lee (I'll probably be rambling during tbf)
and hung out with him a bit
then she moved to london and didn't know anybody so she emailed him being like "hey can we meet up for a coffee or something" just cos she didn't know the town and he emailed back being like "uhhhh I have a wife I really don't think thats appropriate" and was pretty rude apparently.
I had the same idea as him watching micheal mcintyre, that it was motivated by some kind of autism or something where he didn't understand really basic things like spice racks or whatever. Like that the whole routine was an attempt to straighten out his vision of the world, that he was approaching it with a larry david sort of belligerence and confusion and that he was secretely really angry that the audience was laughing rather than helping him
GIVE A FAKE EMAIL ADDRESS.

But what it tells us about Stewart Lee...
...this is a pretty good question.
