That's ace news. Awesome. Even if he does seem to be turning into somewhat of an insufferable arse.

It's true that the last series didn't get good ratings, but the BBC must know that, that it is their fault.
I'm an avid Stewart Lee fan. I really, really love the guy, have done since Fist Of Fun.

But I didn't know about series 2 until episode three had already aired!

11.20 on BBC Two.

For one thing has a programme ever started at 20 past anything before!?!

Add to that the 11 bit and the no adverts thing they must have tried (I never saw any), and surely they must know that its ratings were mostly down to it being hidden.

The quality can't be denied though. I'm well pleased that there will be more.

Well, yeah. That and that they knew it was only of interest to a niche audience anyway. Hence their recommissioning of it, rather than refusing and citing 'poor viewing figures'! :)

He was really funny after winning those comedy awards when I saw him live. When only half the room would laugh at a joke, he would say, "don't worry, they'll all be gone soon". Laughing out loud
