Stewart Lee isn't nearly as well known as he ought to be, despite being behind Jerry Springer the Opera and, with Richard Herring, the cruelly cancelled TV series "This Morning With Richard Not Judy". This might be because he's completely uncompromising and doesn't actually want the mass-audience of an Eddie Izzard. His 2005 Edinburgh Show, 90s comedian, was brilliant, though I'm surprised it hasn't got him killed by fundamentalist Christians.

This recording of a different set in Glasgow last year is equally near-the-knuckle. Among other targets, his satirical attack on some of the absurdities of nationalism in front of this Scottish audience made me nervous on his behalf just watching it. Brave stuff. And very funny too.
