Saw Stewart Lee last night in the Tyne Theatre for £15. He was brilliant. I can't understand why he's not more well liked. His retort to Frankie Boyle's "you can't be a comedian after you hit 40" was excellent and his bit on Magners cider was quality. In fact, it was just quality all the way through. Really good value.
I've seen quite a few comedians lately.
Marcus Brigstocke- lots of laughs. Another one who I think is underrated.
Michael McIntyre- very funny but I think he was better last year.
Eddie Izzard- slightly disappointing but I may not have been in the mood for it that night.
Ricky Gervais- started slowly I thought but when he picked it up he was very good. Also, supported by Stewart Francis who, in his own right, is well worth going to see.
Not seeing anyone else until Lee Mack next year now.
