He admits as much, and said he was glad it was cancelled ....

 

I saw the CP tour, and to my mind it's the best yet ... a fitting note to bow out on, as he's pretty much retiring for the next few years.

Stewart Lee is named the best comedian working today

 

Stand-up tops list from The Times

 

He might have once been proclaimed the 41st best stand-up ever – a fact he used as the title of one of his shows – but Stewart Lee has now been named the best English-speaking comedian at work today.

The 50-year-old has topped a top 30 list published in The Times today, compiled by its comedy critic Dominic Maxwell.

He wrote: ‘I marvelled at the skill, I thrilled to the boldness, most importantly I laughed till it hurt when I saw Lee’s latest show, Content Provider.’

At No 2 on the list is probably the hottest current comedian, Hannah Gadsby, with Harry Hill No. 3

The youngest comics on the list are Sophie Willan at No 27 and Mo Gilligan at No 30 – both aged 30 –  and the oldest is 59-year-old Bob Mortimer at No 59. His comedy partner Vic Reeves deosn’t make the cut.

The top ten are

  1. Stewart Lee
  2. Hannah Gadsby
  3. Harry Hill
  4. Dave Chapelle
  5. Tim Key
  6. Steve Coogan
  7. Flight Of The Conchords
  8. Michelle Wolf
  9. Peter Kay
  10. Bridget Christie.

Daniel Kitson, who often scores highly in such charts, comes in at No 12.

The full list for Times subscribers is here. Lee’s Content Provider is on BBC Two next Saturday at 10.45pm.

I think it`s too subjective to say who`s the best, there`s some better than him in my opinion, I really like Roy Wood Jnr but he`s not in the list.

Comedy, music, literature, art .... it's all subjective :yep:

 

He's definitely the sort of comedian you need to be in the right "zone" to appreciate. MrsJP just sat stoney faced for ages, and then it clicked.

 

Whatever you think of his comedy, his book "How I escaped my certain fate" is a classic IMHO. It has transcripts for 3 shows, with copious footnotes and insights.

I read the last one, it was very thin though, more like a pamphlet but enjoyable all the same.

 

I`ll have a look for this one.
