I've seen Stewart Lee four times
13 December 2016 | by a-picotSee all my reviews

The first time I saw Lee was back in 1985, before he got famous and everyone else got into him. He was then a promising young stand up.

The second time I saw Lee, in 1996, he was was working as an apprentice fitter at Quik-fit and was responsible for replacing tyre-valve caps. He was rubbish at his job then and still is. He managed to put one valve on the end of my aerial and lost the other three. So too, in this video, he misplaces the focus of his foul temper and has a go at the audience for not understanding his jokes and not laughing and calling them 'stupid'. However, it was filmed in Sheffield.

The third time I saw Lee was behind the Manchester Apollo where he was kicking the **** out of Des O' Connor, demanding that he share his material with him, so I find it a little hypocritical that Lee criticises other classier acts and calls them 'stupid'. He also criticises Scooby Doo, unfairly, in my opinion.

The fourth time I saw Lee, I was siting in the upper-circle at the Sheffield arena where the show was filmed, and for your information, Lee, I did understand the jokes, but chose not to laugh at them because they were like you; not funny, or was it because I had car-tyre valves misplaced in my ears?

However, I would describe the show as 'quite good'. Lee just needs to include some more observational humour and include some more jokes about old people or something.
