However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo.
Lee suffers from delusional grandeur, and this song is the result of Stewart Lee observing the meteoric rise in popularity of russell brand, whilst he sits on the sidelines wondering "why him and not me.
Stewart Lee just attacks anything that doesn't fit in with his stupidly socialist world view. Dave Chappelle's could show him how it's done.
Stewart Lee doesn't actually exist, does he? He's a creation designed to satirise that kooky metropolitan "I hate the mainstream, me" superiority complex. It's clever comedy for thick people.
Explains why you should laugh. Then accuses you of not having a sense of humour. He appears to have serious life issues and he seems to think that foisting his emotional turmoil onto audiences is somehow 'art'.
How the 'left' take the moral ground hey! A routine about the repeal of the Corn Laws? The Phlogiston theory of combustion?
Just because he's heard of William Tyndall doesn't make him funny. The stuff about Adrian Chiles was illuminating. AC is popular because HE is funny and droll. And effortlessly, unlike SL who puts all sort of effort to disguise lack of a basic wit.
If you are a comedian in the UK, please use English and not Yiddish! It is not funny, it is not clever, you are not plying your trade in the 'Borscht Belt'!
Do you think it makes you seem 'cool', or 'clever' or 'in the know'" - Declan Ahern, Independent. He comes from the smug - if you don't laugh at my material then you aren't smart enough - school of comedy. No Stewart, if we don't laugh at your material then it's just not good enough.
Sorry to say they don't exist. He takes about 5 or so good concepts and plays them all out over far too long a time so by the end of each segment you don't really care whether there is a point to the piece.
The delivery is too dead pan to make it interesting. Avoid at all costs, please don't encourage the man. He's a bit slimy. He's suuuch a kidder! How on earth Stewart Lee can equate Clarkson remarking about Gordon Brown having one eye to Clarkson mocking a blind child is ludicrous and lazy.
It wasn't meant in that way and he knows it. If the portly prick is so offended by cheap comments even if they're in bad taste without turning them around to form his stand-up routine then stay in the fucking house or don't watch it. Dreadful comedian and I'm certain people only say he's funny to be 'right on'.
Fat rockabilly headed bell-end. I like comedy that plays with the audience's expectations and attempts to subvert comedic conventions, as long as it's actually funny.
I think the appeal of Stewart Lee lies in his perceived cosmopolitan exclusivity, that he's meant to be the thinking persons comedian. If you don't like him it's because you don't 'get' him, or your not quite clever enough to keep up. The last series of Limmy's show was far funnier and a damn sight more clever and original than this over-rated muffet of poo, why the BBC opted not to air it nationwide is beyond me.Andy Rooney (pictured), the late crotchety “60 Minutes” commentator, was known for his closing segment called “A Few Minutes With Andy Rooney.” Although his .
Do you know if Niagara Falls can freeze or whether sewer monsters really exist? Can you tell a photoshopped image from the original? Debunk urban legends, . As we have seen in the United States in vibrant real time over the last several years, the media have become a battleground for the powerful to fight it out with the goal of altering public.
Every four years the planet comes together to celebrate the World Cup and since white people make up a portion the world, they are not immune to the excitement. Rooney was also mistakenly connected to racism when a politically charged essay highly insensitive to minorities was written in his .
