What Is Stewart Lee? 2006


January 2006, Nightingales

I support teenage heroes The Nightingales at The Spitz in London and direct Jerry Springer The Opera for the 19th time for the National Tour.

The show works fine but is involved in an uphill battle against disinformation from the Christian right and opportunistic local politicians, especially in Leicester.
A predictable cycle is established, on a week to week basis on arrival in each new town, of an unfavourable front-lash in hysterical local papers followed by ecstatic reviews arriving sometimes too late to turn the tide.

Today Programme

A lifetime's ambition is achieved by appearing on Radio 4's Today prog to discuss the Danish Muslim Cartoons.
