An official Channel 4 survey of the 100 Greatest Stand-ups Ever placed Stewart Lee at number 41. His mother, whom he loves dearly, thinks Tom O'Connor the better comedian, having seen him do a joke about a sardine on a cruise ship ten years ago. And he isn't even in the top 100... 'The funniest, most cliche-free comedian on the circuit' (Ricky Gervais). 'Superlative... Remains one of the best stand-ups in the country' (Metro) 'Marvellously funny: mordant, thoughtful and crafted' (Observer) 'There's a wealth of evidence to suggest that in the last few years, Lee has gone completely mad... More skilful and playful than ever' (The Guardian) 'What is exhilarating is how many surprises he still throws in and how deft his jumps are from one tone to another….invigorating' (The Times) 'He is... the only comedian who can get away with deconstructing and critiquing his own routines as he goes along and not be repellent. He, and his material, are simply that good' (The Independent).
