Posts like this from Aaron are the reason I don't post much on here.

Still, good to see the series has an airdate now. Looking forward to it despite the crappy time slot.

I just read on Armando Iannucci's Twitter account that he has filmed some more red button interview sketches with Stewart Lee.

Well that's good news, they were great last time round. Utterly bizarre scheduling decision though - you wonder if whoever commissioned the series has moved on and it's now not got as much support within the BBC (apparently that was a problem with the second series of Fist of Fun).

And even if they can only get a slot at 11:20 on BBC Two, surely this is the kind of series that could be perfect for primetime on BBC Four?

You all know the rule: if it's not f**ked about with in the schedules, then it's not a proper Stewart Lee TV show.

I heard the second series is just going to be the same material as the first, just delivered more slowly and with greater emphasis.

Just bought tickets for this. Good line-up for anybody around at the beginnings of alternative comedy. Curated by Stewart Lee and Paul Jackson.

I'm a big fan of Stewart Lee's stand-up, but I felt that the first series of Comedy Vehicle started to drag as it went on. His assessment of Chris Moyles' writing career is one of the greatest things shown on television in recent years however.
