Without doubt Stewart Lee cut a heroic figure in my life for a certain period. He was obviously brilliant yet had been totally abandoned by the mainstream for no clear reason. It fascinated me that someone who was so obviously a genius in his field was playing small rooms and doing wilfully odd things at gigs.
This interview was done just before he hit the bigtime for a second time. It's an interesting little period piece in that sense. However, it's very much a fan interview so I suggest you go watch some of his stuff on YouTube first.
