"I once attended a performance of We Will Rock You, the Queen musical by Ben Elton and Queen, and, if anything, it made me despise the dreadful group even more than I did before, from a position of greater understanding".

His 'character' certainly does. He's mentioned Queen before on stage re. Sun City but I've heard him mention the musical many times. Difficult to judge is he really hates them, if he merely dislikes them but exaggerates for show or maybe he even likes them.

If you too are tired of the 'dreadful group' you can enjoy the musical stylings of Mr Lee here:

Well, excuse me.

I am just pointing out for anyone not familiar with Stewart Lee's work that criticism of something while 'in character' doesn't necessarily correspond to his genuine opinions.

I believe his Favourite band is 'The Fall', which is like saying your favourite smell is excrement. :|

yes, I get that, I was being facetious for comedy effect. I've seen him live, I'm a big fan.

I once attended a 'gig' by Stewart Lee, nine years on and I am still waiting for a funny bit. Quite possibly the worst two hours of my life. Each to their own I guess....

I thought as much. Why do all these right-on, leftie 'comics' always have absolutely shit taste in music? The Fall make me want to hang myself in a homeless hostel whilst crying fat tears over my dead wife's photos - they are that depressing.

Love it when people say how they really feel :lol:
And I agree with you both.
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~
