Of course there’s a future for the British fishing industry – on stage - July 2020 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - July 12th, 2020

On the quay at Port Isaac yesterday evening, lit by a midsummer moon, I stood before an assembled shoal of grizzled Cornish fishermen, fat Henry V in Fred Perry, waving my Olivier award like a sword. “I know you. You’ve survived storms at sea, gales that tear trees from fields. You’ve withstood winds that raise…

My Neil Diamond tribute to Churchill - June 2020 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - June 28th, 2020

Hibernation is over! Outside our front window, sex workers comfort strangers again, and opposite Sainsbury’s men fight with their shirts off, like boar or rutting stags, arousing passing women, loveless for too long in lockdown. And in Parliament Square, Winston Churchill emerges from his winter wooden box, snuffling the virus-free air like a cocaine groundhog.…

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…

Downing Street – a haven for weirdos, misfits and comic-book villains - February 2020 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - February 23rd, 2020

The Hate-Monger is a minor Marvel comics villain, first documented by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in December 1963, who is a clone of Hitler and wears a purple Ku Klux Klan robe. In Fantastic Four issue 21, The Hate-Monger bounces his Hate-Ray off the moon, amplifying people’s feelings of dread, fear and anxiety, inflaming…

Boris Johnson turns politics into a puppet show - January 2020 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - January 19th, 2020
