My Waterman conspiracy theory was sunk by Nadhim Zahawi’s incompetence - May 2022 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - May 15th, 2022

Everyone can remember where they were when, on Monday of last week, they heard that Pete Waterman, of 1980s pop-production duo Stockhausen and Waterman, had died. I was on a garage forecourt on the A1 near Melton Mowbray eating a bag of chicken Fridge Raiders in the rain next to a broken outside toilet. And…

Was no gravestone left unturned to smear Keir? - May 2022 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - May 8th, 2022

Frank Dobson, the former Labour MP for Holborn and St Pancras, is dead. And yet his corpse seems to have been reanimated, purely to discredit the Labour party, at the incompetent behest of the bleary late night Tory disinformation-sluice Nadine Dorries. The Keirgate Beergate confusion campaign, by the Conservatives and their slave journalists, attempts to…

Barrel-scraper Grant Shapps is taking us for a ride - May 2022 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - May 1st, 2022

In 2002, I accessed the 3,000-year-old subterranean ceremonial chamber of Pendeen Fogou in north-west Cornwall, by crawling through a 2ft-deep river of liquid cow slurry.

And yet, despite being observed on the gents’ toilet’s security camera that is the modern world stage, it continues its abasement unabashed. After the second world war, the German volk were described as experiencing kollektivschuld, a national shame.…

Is Nadine Dorries bird-brained or what? - April 2022 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - April 10th, 2022

Like Satan in Milton’s Paradise Lost, the culture secretary, Nadine Dorries, apparently has restless thoughts and only finds ease in destroying. Doubtless, Dorries is aware on some level of the epic poem, in her capacity as guardian of the nation’s cultural treasures, and as an author herself, and yet she learns nothing from it. So…

Eat your heart out Will Smith – I certainly did - April 2022 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - April 3rd, 2022

The inspirational Leicester comedy festival awards ceremony, which I attended on Monday in the ballroom of the refurbished Grade II-listed Mercure Leicester Grand, could only have been improved by a multimillionaire performatively punching another multimillionaire in the face. Nonetheless, my once-in-a-lifetime Legend of Comedy statuette win was overshadowed by the violent brawling of the Oscar…
