Books - The “If You Prefer A Milder Comedian, Please Ask For One” EP

Following his hugely acclaimed TV come-back, Comedy Vehicle, Lee finds himself spent and in search of ideas for a new Edinburgh show. On a long walk across London, he endures a coffee shop humiliation involving a loyalty card, which suggests itself as a comedy routine about everyday life that anyone could enjoy.

Later that month, thanks to Jeremy Clarkson’s jokes about Gordon Brown’s blindness and the appearance of a well-meaning young comedian in a pear cider advert, a show is born.

Featuring a transcript of the show fully annotated with footnotes, the If You Prefer A Milder Comedian EP confirms Stewart Lee as the most original, daring and brilliant comedian of his generation.

I’ve always though of Stewart Lee’s comedy as doing the opposite of what really good comedy should do.‘ Toby Young, BBC Radio 4
