    Saw him at Edinburgh last year trying out material for this show - it was hilarious, despite the disjointed nature of performing 2 or 3 (I forget...) 30 minute sections designed for TV. So I'm really looking forward to this.

    Stewart Lee is underrated?! By who?

    I suppose he meant he's not a household name like he should be.

    Only people who know alot about british stand up comedy know about him.

    Richard Herring does tend to over egg a lot of his routine though, which I know is the point most of the time, but it's not always successful. I like them both a lot though.

    "You're listening to Radio 4, where pitch and tone are an acceptable substitute for content."

    Spot on. Hit and miss on the whole as usual. Will give this thing with Armando Iannucci on the red button a go.

    They're discussing the impact of Adrian Chiles on modern culture.

    Thought that was quite meh.

    It did have some amusing moments, but there was a lot of nothingness too.

    Excellent show, just my cup of tea though. The short red button thing is well worth catching up on.

    I'v always loved the awkwardness of the unrelenting repetition of lines, like the rapper description.

    There is a great Ang Lee based joke on you tube as a great example :D

    Caught the last 10 minutes and didn't think it was too bad. I'll definitely catch next weeks show and try to use the beebs watch again thingy to watch the start of tonights show.
    Not great but it's intrigued me.

    Pretty good I thought, though the extras (red button) were much funnier.

    /slowly lowers leather glove

    Just thought it took a while to get going. The second was definitely better, but the first 10 minutes barely raised a smile on my curmudgeonly face.

    Not sure about the sketches or the need for weird camera cuts either.

    Yeah absolutely. Most people at work have never heard of Lee or Herring. Most people at work exclusively read Dan Brown and Chris Moyles books too.

    I'm not sure that the sketches were really needed but it was good to see Eldon and Munnery on my telly again.

    i did love the 'you should never buy 6 clarkson books from amazon' bit, 'it takes a lifetime to readdress the balance of your profile'.. or something like that.

    I found him clever but hard work. Seemed to revel in the kind of cynicism reserved for miserable post grads. Some of the pot shots seemed far too easy and laboured.
