Stewart Lee's nervous breakdown (live)

Stewart Lee's nervous breakdown (live)

(9:36) Some people don't get the genius of English comedian Stewart Lee and think he's just shit. Even so, rather than stealing it, you can buy his live DVD 'If you prefer a milder comedian, please ask for one' at Amazon.co.uk (£), or Amazon.com ($).

The text heading this video opened the discussion: stating that there is very split opinion on the intelligence of Lee. "Dumpty" and I are having a nice chat about opinion, the importance of reading things properly, and what qualifies as Genius. We're not really getting anywhere, but it's nice for people like me to be able to practice written English. In this case, it's not Trolling, It is a discussion, but Stephen would probably call us both asinine for wasting our time :)

He's just a chubby, self-obsessed wanker. He looks upon himself as a genius, and only other similarly pretentious tossers agree with him. If you want genius, look at Ross Noble, Stephen Fry or David Mitchell.

Bad part, Bad acting. ...and it *should* be "pear" if measured as a percentage of ingredients. So.. As he says himself: he doesn't get better than this... yet he wonders why his DVDs don't sell! Badly acted and factually incorrect. If I want to watch ill-informed people throwing a hissy fit, I'll watch a US Republican Debate. ;o) At least they're genuinely amusing.

Comedy is in the eye of the beholder. If you think people who like Stewart are pretentious tossers does that mean if they also like Ross, Stephen & David they are still pretentious tossers or have met with your approval?...I bet your 3 comedy geniuses would think you are the pretentious tosser for your sweeping statement.

To answer your question: Yes. If they "think of him as a genius" (my defining pretext) I would think of them as pretentious tossers. Nothing he as done suggests a stunningly high IQ. I was not referring to comedy talent either. Ross, David and Stephen are all *exceptionally* intelligent men - this helps them to be razor sharp and instantly adaptable. Lee feels the need for a staged and rehearsed rant, and it's painful to watch. His DVD sales speak for him. Also the "three geniuses" know the difference between "pretentious" and "opinionated", so I feel you'd loose your bet.

The very reason you make unfounded, exaggerated claims about people who like Stewart makes you pretentious. You come across as arrogant and pretentious in every way... Also, if you are going to suggest I don't know the difference between 'pretentious' and 'opinionated' then before you wield your 'academic superiority' with your condescending tone you might want to find out the correct definition of 'loose' and use it in the proper context.

Oh deer. I put in won to many o's did I? How terrible. Minor grammar niggles aside, you appear to have missed my point. I have no beef with people who enjoy Stewart Lee, but those insist he is a Genius are - in my opinion - incorrect. I happen to also believe that he is Shit. At no point have I said that people who LIKE him are wrong or wankers. He makes some points that make me laugh, but he's far from being a genius, and on average is rather dull. You are attacking me for something that you've imagined.

'I have no beef with people who enjoy Stewart Lee, but those insist he is a Genius are - in my opinion - incorrect.'...Therefore you are pretentious. You have no authority on what defines a genius. Also, is there any mention in this video that Stewart Lee claims to be a genius? No! ...oh and its 'dear'

Now, we've both wasted enough time and mouthed off enough on this. Suffice to say, if you'd called me an opinionated, judgmental git, then I'd have actually agreed. Pretentious I am not. I dislike Stewart Lee - that is fairly obvious - but I have the same view of his supporters as I do of people who are religious. They're totally welcome to enjoy him. I bare them no grudge. If however they bang on about how awesome he is (in this case, call him Genius), I feel obliged to voice my opposing belief and offer alternatives. If we all liked the same stuff, this world would be horribly boring - I think we can all agree on that :)

Latest comment: Absolutely...Just for the record. I didn't claim he was a genius and never have. Genius should be reserved for true geniuses and I wouldn't categorise comedians in that territory...some can be clever and thought provoking but ultimately their purpose is to make you laugh.

Stephen Fry is more frequently embarrassed about his fame, and you'd never find him basking in it... there's also a major difference between Fry and Lee: One of them is adored by millions, rightly regarded as a genius, and highly sought after by TV and radio producers alike.... The other is Stewart Lee.
