Shun Perrier, comic urges - February 1998 The Stage - By Ben Dowell - February 5th, 1998

Television comic and Edinburgh veteran Stewart Lee has told The Stage that he is prepared to organise a boycott of Perrier Awards became they are “against the spirit of the Edinburgh Festival”.

It’s best not to join this Cluub! - August 1997 The Stage - By Cameron Robertson - August 28th, 1997

Dan O’Brien’s Oblomov is obsessed with sci-fi, gambling, moon landings and, most of all, inertia. “You dream of interplanetary life while England goes to the dogs,” complains his friend Stu, during a thinly disguised cameo…
