    I do indeed, but it's better than living in Cuntdon.

    I actually agree with you

    Does Cambridge count as a bumblefuck town? Saw him there earlier this year and he was great, though it was pretty much all material from the new series and I had no idea who Rod Liddle was.

    He did of course berate us for not being his usual, intelligent crowd, if that's a measure of bumblefuckery? But I assumed he does that everywhere.

    He has the opposite reaction to Londoners in that he tends to rail against them for their superiority complexes and faux-intellectualism.

    I've seen him a few times in Liverpool and he's always very good. I met him after one of the gigs too and was very friendly and polite.

    Regarding his shows, I haven't found this series as good as the previous 3, they are well written and executed as always but something just doesn't click the same way.

    If you read his book "How I escaped my certain fate..", the footnotes in it are amazing and he describes what he is trying to achieve with each line of the show and how he is trying to get an audience to react. It puts an entirely new slant on his work and I urge everyone to check it out.

    Last episode of the series was the highlight.

    Just discovered his 2011 show is on Amazon Prime Video, free if you're a Prime subscriber:

    As Sleep says.

    The reason I like the bumblefuck towns is that you don't get so many braying acolytes laughing a bit too hard at bits which aren't particularly that good anyway.

    It can all be a bit Emporers New Clothes

    I saw him in Bridport last year (definition of a bumblefuck town) and he was brilliant, but he didn't include a lot of what I thought were the funniest bits of the show in this series of Comedy Vehicle.

    Saw him for 4th live last night in St Albans. Brilliant, if you haven't seen his latest tour yet, you should. Probably my favourite so far.

    Heads up! New Stew came out yesterday.

    Content Provider, 90 minute stand up. Pretty pretty good. Saw an early version of this show before he toured it, definitely got funnier. Usual schtik.

    The first half was awesome, I was properly guffawing. Second half with the long S&M bit wasn't as good.

    After binging on Live From The BBC on Netflix with Felicity Ward, Josie Long and the rest this airing is perfect timing for me being on a comedy kick.

    Need to dig out my Alternative Comedy Experience dvds tonight I think

    You should scatter them on the floor then watch Stewart Lee.

    I loved this show - saw it live in Sheffield. The whole show was him pretty much shitting on his audience for two hours, it was great. His callbacks are still as clever as ever, too.
