Ricky Gervais and Jeremy Clarkson are no laughing matter - January 2020 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - January 12th, 2020

Last week, in a much-needed and well-timed satire of snowflake hand-wringing over the Australian bush fires, the Sun’s politically incorrect columnist Jeremy Clarkson declared the continent unfit for human habitation and welcomed scorched whiteys back to the motherland, unaccompanied minors and all. 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…

Why Trump killed Santa and other stocking chillers - December 2019 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - December 29th, 2019

Few hearts can have been left unbroken on Friday night, when footage emerged of President Donald Trump triumphantly celebrating the killing of Father Christmas by American military forces on Boxing Day.

At Costa Coffee, Michael Gove spilled the beans… - December 2019 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - December 15th, 2019

The World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) finally called Russia’s bluff last week and banned its enhancement-addled athletes, many of them little more than skin sacks full of amphetamines and Calpol, from major world sporting events for the next four years. Perhaps it was this that saw sister organisation the World Anti-Lying Agency (Wala) inspired to flex…

Michael Gove’s love of Stormzy is not to be sniffed at - December 2019 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - December 1st, 2019

Many years ago, while wearing a Navajo jacket, I was accused of cultural appropriation. I told the zealot harassing me the jacket was a gift from a Native American shaman-clown, under whom I had studied.
