I saw his recent tour where he was trying out a lot of the stuff for the show, if that's anything to go by the new series is going to be great

Although I'm a fan from the Fist of Fun days so take that for what it's worth, nowadays comedy fans seem to want the moon on a stick.

Laughing out loud

It's funny because it's true!

Well, almost true. You know you only get late night privileges on Saturday, sometimes Friday. (Sunday, of course, is the night before a school day. In bed by 8 & say your dirty prayers).

Here he is on tonight's "This Week", promoting the new series. It's a pretty good interview compared to most, but I was a bit disappointed that he was cut off when talking about Chris Morris.

I watched that live and he said the BBC were moving his show forward so it doesn't influence the Clegg vs Farage Europe debate.

Stewart Lee attacking UKIP - now there's some bold and controversial comedy. How does he choose such contentious topics? I'm sure it will be eye opening stuff and not just the usual left wing stance on UKIP with well thought out satire and an original take on the situation.

Perhaps he'll touch upon Labour's deliberate open door immigration policy to explain the rise and popularity of UKIP...or maybe he'll just call them a bunch of mad old racists in the most reactionary dogmatic way possible.

I'm no psychic, but I imagine he's not a fan. Unimpressed

Wave I'm bizarrely addicted to the show. Though I have yet to send in a Twelfie outside Annabelles holding a bottle of Blue Nun.

I've got a couple of lefty friends round tonight, so they'll have to put up with my constant eye rolling, tut-ting and sighing.

(Wow, tutting is spelled all weird)

The UKIP stuff is next week, so you're saved; tonight's is pretty good.
