In an odd twist of 90's nostalgia fate, I had the opportunity to see (and, indeed, briefly chat to) both Stewart Lee and Richard Herring live in Dublin in the past couple of weeks... older readers on this side of the pond may remember they used to be a double act in the BBC TV shows Fist of Fun and This Morning with Richard Not Judy (some of which are archived on Stewart's website). More recently, Stewart Lee co-wrote Jerry Springer-- The Opera.
Enjoyed both their gigs, but Stewart Lee was probably a bit more to my rib-tickling taste-- then again, he is the 41st Best Stand Up Ever. (Julie was rather pleased to get a kiss off Richard Herring, though!)
