Any time he does a little high-pitched mocking laugh or similar sound imitating someone else talking to him. I know it's just him filling in Richard Herring's role, but it cracks me up every time.

Also, as mentioned, "what you having a go at Russell Howard for mate?"

Proactive

I know he's such an obvious go-to for favourite comedian but he really is the fuckin don.

Cold Meat Platter

Fucking love the 'wtf?' screwed-up face he does.

Quote from: Proactive on June 18, 2024, 08:30:51 PMParaphrasing here but the bit in the Whicker Del sketch where Paul Putner's character says of the event "there's no harm in it" to which Stu replies "I didn't say there was any harm in it. "

Then Putner replies with a terse "Good. Because there isn't". It's great.

When the BBC told him he couldn't refer to a certain Tory MP as "a piece of shit" because it would be "defecation of character"

Lee, what's satire?

"It's when there's animals, sir."

Good, go directly to Oxford.

Who else, apart from the IRA, makes you proud to be British?

Now. That story about David Cameron is not true.

'"Fucking hell", he concludes, "I can't put into words..."' and then the pause and look at the audience is utterly perfect. I can never quite work out if knowing that it was [redacted] who posted that comment, that it's genuine and that he'd have absolutely hated it being made into part of Lee's show makes it better, but I think it does.



Not sure if this one counts as Lee doesn't perform in it, but the apple shop sketch in series 1 of Comedy Vehicle.

Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse

Now it wasn't just racists who voted for Brexit.

Cunts did as well.

and the callback to that joke at the start of the second half

absolutely love the apple shop sketch, especially the way it breaks down when the trombone player comes in and Putner starts destroying the set in desperation while Eldon taunts him with apples

let's all enjoy it now

As someone who is forced to work with young people, I often question their tastes in popular culture but soften the blow by conceding that Taylor Swift (or whoever) "isn't aimed at me".

I love how Putner is channeling his inner Peter Glaze there.

Is that Mel and/or Sue off of that Mel and Sue there?

Aye especially when it's his Brummie Nan being racist or whatever.

Isn't that Herrings joke?  Or did it originate from the pair of them.

I don't know anything about zoology, biology, geology, geography, marine biology, cryptozoology, evolutionary theory, evolutionary biology, meteorology, limnology, history, herpetology, paleontology or archaeology but I think; what if a dinosaur had got in the lake?

No, her name's Gail Brand. She confirms this in the comments!

I was doing a bit

"A gnat's chuff is literally as tight as a gnat's chuff, Rich." That's what he, Stewart Lee, used to say

ASFTSN

I can't remember or find the exact quote but there's an old written interview where Stew is interviewing himself and I think of it when I walk past the ice creams in a newsagents because of the line that went something like:

Lee crammed the remainder of the Calippo into his mouth before signalling to the waitress for another.

The visual always makes me laugh.

sevendaughters

the Loch Ness bit is my favourite 'joke' of his (emphasis switched between set-up and punchline though) but yeah amazing.

I really liked the bit about Josh Widdecombe hosting The Last Leg.

sevendaughters

I sometimes find his descent into Phil Minton-esque vocal gobbledeygook brilliant and sometimes not. I think the Gervais 'saying the unsayable' wasn't half as good as the posh comedians saying "maaaate".

Sebastian Cobb

Can't help but think of 'Peter Stringfellow's Lord of the Rings' whenever GoT is mentioned.

g0m

Begins thus: "Welcome, reader, to the first page of text", and you might look at that and think, "that's funny, and clever", but it isn't

Cuellar

I like in the Chris Moyles book bit where he's acting out the portion of Moyles's friends who don't ask him what the book is about, where he turns round and half-heartedly pokes and prods the light fitting.

I remember this delivery exactly, and I remember he was doing his side of a phone call? Can you give me the context please?



dissolute ocelot

The way he says "on the wall of a broch", and indeed the whole William Wallace was gay routine.

Shiilbottle

Ooh from memory because it's not on youtube and I've lost my copy...pretending to be managing a crap stone quarry, has imaginary phone conversation with potential buyer, but Lee won't sell more than a ton, no way, end of. Then there's a long pause as if Lee is listening to the man, he rolls his eyes etc and we the audience consider that the man could get round this by placing orders under different guises. Then the quoted punchline, to something that was never said.


I hate Stewart Lee with a passion, he's like Ian Huntley to me.
