Most performers want their audiences to like them. I just want to be Stewart Lee - October 2015 The New Statesman - By Will Self - October 19th, 2015

I’ve done a fair amount of solo performing throughout my career – in fact, I started out as a stand-up comedian, and from time to time I revisit that sort of shtick, doing little gigs in the upstairs rooms of pubs. But mostly I do “shows” of one sort or another to support the publication…
