Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle marks the solo television debut of 'one of the world's top two or three living stand-ups' (Time Out). Each of the six episodes sees Stewart explore a different theme, live in a real club, while film inserts feature an ensemble cast of well known comic talent. Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle is the first television series this century to capture the atmosphere of a live stand-up gig, its groundbreaking visual style and uncompromising content the result of four years of meticulous negotiations. At last, the performer known in the trade as 'the comedian's comedian' was packaged for the discerning TV viewer, resulting in the most consistently well-reviewed BBC2 comedy series since The Office.
Over the hill.

I remember when Lee was an angry young stand up full of left wing loathing and bile. Now he is a fat, middle aged and middle class whingeing interminably about rubbish. This is relieved by very amateur clips only one of which is worth seeing (a couple hosed with sewage when ever they select a certain channel on the television.) His small select studio audience must be on drugs, they laugh hysterically at everything he says. Maybe he is better live.
