Series 1, Episode 6 - Religion

In what some might regard as asking for trouble, Stewart Lee takes on the thorny topic of religion.

Further details

"I woke up last Sunday morning at 6.30, when there was a knock on my door... and there was one of those born-again Christian Evangelists there, and he said to me 'Sir! The answer is Jesus, now what is the question?' And I said, 'Is the question: for which role was Robert Powell nominated for a Bafta?'"

In what some might regard as asking for trouble, Stewart Lee takes on the thorny topic of religion this week.

In a routine illustrated with sketches featuring an ensemble cast, Stewart considers how to make jokes about religion. Are jokes about religion actually about religion, or just about silly clothes? And what's with all the silly clothes anyway? In an effort to break the mould, he attempts a sketch that actually deals with the nuts and bolts of what religion is about.


This episode was originally scheduled to air as the penultimate episode in the series, but was swapped with the original sixth episode (about being a comedian) shortly before broadcast.
