Probably avoids the Northern Clubs unless he's looking to have his teeth removed without the dentist's bill....strictly a North London act. Goes down well in Camden, beaten to a bloody pulp in Salford.

Much funnier when partnered with Rich Herring...who was far funnier than he ever was.

That may have been true when he was starting out. Hes well known enough now so that no matter where he tours geographically he's got a following of fans who are buying tickets to see him and know exactly what there in for. He regularly plays Salford Lowry and got a good reception from a packed out st georges hall in bradford.

His new comedy vehicle series was a bit sh1t but some of his stuff is brilliant, the joe pasquale/vomiting into the gaping anus of jesus bit is genius.

Richard Herring wasn't and isn't that funny, that's why most of his material can be found on his free podcasts

Sorry Arturo....but disagree. The Salford gig is just round the block from all the ex-London BBC types slumming at Media City nowadays, so no doubt some displaced commissioning editor and a bunch or researchers in Salford finds SL hilarious.

And Rich Herring was funny and remains funny......

...just a pity Herring and Lee can't get back together. Then we all get some proper giggles. But it seems when double comedy acts fall-out they really do mean it and there's no going back...shame.

41st Best Stand Up Ever? . . . . I've think he's pushing on top 5.

I went to see tony law last year at Salford Lowry and from I could gauge in the bar area it was populated by normal folks, as was Stewart lee's gig in Bradford.

I do understand where your coming from in principle though, I can see how his political views would rub people up the wrong way, especially in deprived areas.

I do find him funny, but he's politically niave for someone so intelligent. I would say I have liberal views but I'm not a socialist, I'm a realist with socialist leanings. Some of his views seem to belong in this utopia where the world runs on good will and everyone being nice to each other rather than having to have a balanced economy etc. It's well meaning but a bit unrealistic.

I'm not aware of any falling out with lee and herring, lee speaks highly if herring in his book and I've heard herring speak of lee in the same way. Comedy is highly subjective but I personally prefer lee on his own than the lee and herring stuff.

He's my favourite stand up comedian of all time and I've been to see him live twice.

His 'smug' style is all part of the act. He's a very clever and very funny man.

People who get agitated by him are often (not always) dullards who don't understand exactly what the joke is or the point he is trying to make.

I realise I may also have come across as slightly smug in that last sentence - but that is genuinely what I seem to find when discussing him with people.

It is what it is.....
