Not as lazy as me. He, presumably, wrote something. I couldn't even be bothered to read it.

Stuart Lee is too multidimensionality layered, intelligent, and meta, for me.

I like a dour, repetitive, so dry it might not be humour, sort of a humour, but he's gone so deep he's lost me.

I like Richard herring much more these days. Very silly.

Lots of words to say absolutely nothing except plug his show and adopt a playground insult that your average 12 year old could come up with. I suspect that if it didn't have Lee's name attached to it you'd have dismissed that piece as the pile of lazy pointless bollocks that it is.

Read An American Marriage and also Nine Perfect Strangers recently. Both deserving of their critical acclaim. Just finishing David Nicholls’ new novel Sweet Sorrow, which i’ve enjoyed a lot. He writes well about love, so it might be one for those more in touch with their female sides - no guns or aliens or mass killings. But he also drops in some great imagery every now and then. I particularly liked his description of somebody who was constantly carrying around a bottle of water as being like a dolphin in transit, fearful of drying out.

Dolphin imagery is often good. I remember an old boss of mine describing the bloke pissing in a neighbouring urinal as like somebody wrestling with a dolphin.
