For anyone that didn't catch it it's a great show and the DVD will be well worth buying, he's undoubtedly one of the finest stand-ups I've ever seen. Also of interest will be Tedstock at the Bloomsbury in Feb next year, featuring not only Stewart Lee and Richard Herring but the two of them performing back together for the first time in god knows how long. Oh and to keep it on topic Simon Amstell and Phil Jupitas too. Here's the line-up:

Simon Amstell (Never Mind The Buzzcocks)
Dan Brown (The Davinci Code)
Stephen Carlin (Customs and Excise department)
Kevin Eldon (Hyperdrive)
Richard Herring (Richardherring.com)
Robin Ince (Stuart Foot in The Office)
Phil Jupitas (Porky The Poet)
that guy whop wrote the Jerry Springer musical (Radio 4's Quote Unquote)
that guy whop wrote the Jerry Springer musical and Herring (Paramount TV's Festival of Fun)
Josie Long (if.comedies winner)
Simon Munnery (The Security Guard)
Alan Parker Urban Warrior (BBC2's Paramount City)
Anyone know the running times (specifically when it'll finish?) Want to see if we'll be able to catch the last train back if we go!

You can try asking the Bloomsbury direct on 020 7388 8822 to see if they know but it's not on their website yet (although tickets are on seetickets). Be warned though that the tickets are pricey (just under a whopping £25 with fee) but it's a great line-up, I've seen Herring. Eldon and Ince recently too and they've all been excellent but Lee & Herring together is the clincher for me.

Bloomsbury shows never run later than 10.30 for anything I have seen there.

How long ago was that? I thought Lee's last two tours (stand-up comedian and 90's comedian) were amongst some of the best I've seen in a long time and everyone I've shown his last dvd to has been converted too. I honestly can't find fault in his timing at all although he's quite slow paced the gradual build-up is part of what makes him so good for me.

Really good episode tonight - some great lines by Simon and a very drunk Amy Winehouse.

She was more than drunk (rumours of heroin adiction abound).

Andrew Maxwell is a knob. He is also not funny!!

You're wrong he's a nice chap .... though not exactly side splitting funny.

Amy was awesome:

Simon "are you on crack?"
Amy "Do I look like Russell Brand"
Both "Yes!"

I loved the "This is no longer a quiz - it's an intervention" line.

She looked like she was getting ****** off with him, but I think he was right on the mark!

Amstell's response "perhaps you should have said yes"

I was at the recording of next week's episode and that's hilarious as well. The target of Amstell in that is Daniel Bedingfield

Good episode, Amstell was funny and thought Amy Winehouse was good as well, 'sober' or not. Not missing Lamarr at all so far.

I laughed, I cried, then I laughed some most. Best Buzzcocks so far, especially with all the banter between Amstell and Winehouse (who was quite clearly completely off her head on something). I forget what I thought the best line was now, but it had 'sober' in it somewhere.

I'd go further and say i'm really glad he's gone. The show has a new freshness about it.
