We must honour those brave souls… working with Ricky Gervais - May 2020 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - May 3rd, 2020

Every Tuesday at 8.45pm, I stand in the silent lane alone and bang my Le Creusets in support of a group of brave people who must never be forgotten; unsung martyrs who, through no fault of their own, have found themselves working at the very heart of a terrible unfolding disaster of an unprecedented scale…

The inevitable complaints will have already been offset by Sun accountants against the…

I’m seeing stars… but thanks to Elon Musk, not for much longer - January 2020 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - January 5th, 2020

My best New Year’s Eve was 15 years ago. A mis-calibrated dose of prescription painkillers in a bed and breakfast near Wootton Courtenay meant I slept through the whole thing. I slept through the fear. I slept through the dread. I slept through the recriminations and regrets. And I slept through Jools Holland insisting on…
