And now some comedy that I like.

28 July, 2008

With all my bitching on the subject lately, I thought I would point out one comedian whose boot I’m not worthy to lick.

The great thing about Stewart Lee is that he can stop his routine temporarily, make an insightful point about race or politics or history, and then bring it right back to an inspired punch-line. Sometimes comedians get carried away by their desire to lecture the audience and forget to be funny. Lee never falls into this trap. Plus I admire any stand-up comedian who can deliver all his jokes without over-acting and still make you laugh your ass off.
