There are some jokes in this series of Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle. Four of them. Or maybe three. But there are definitely jokes! Okay, they all happen in this first episode, which deals with charity (and crisps), but they're there! You might have to look for them, but they are definitely there! (And in case you miss them, he tells you when they happen, so it's okay)!
Yep. He's back. And, as ever, if you don't know Stew's style already, don't bother. This stand up comedy show airs at 11.20pm on Wednesday nights on BBC2. It's not for everyone. I'd go as far as to say it's not for most people. But there is definitely an audience out there. Stewart Lee, as you know already, is a hero of mine. Not only the funniest man I've ever seen, but as close as possible to the nicest fella I've ever met. Comedy Vehicle is... well, his comedy vehicle. Stew deconstructs each joke, signposts each callback and pushes every last laugh into your face, rather than tickling it out of you.
I can't explain what he does or why it's funny. I can't say 'watch it for this bit when...' because it doesn't work like that! You either get it or you don't. If you get it, welcome to the very exclusive club! If it's not for you, that's perfectly fine! But we all think you're missing out... Watch the first episode on iPlayer now!
