Faint-hearted stay home - August 1997 The Stage - By Sian Phillips - August 14th, 1997

He is well known enough not to need a 6ft tall phallus and a velvet white whale to draw in the punters, but Stewart Lee seems to like strange props. The audience is advised to familiarise itself with the story of Moby Dick from a copy it has been handed before the show, and some…
