Stewart Lee is a British [[RecordedAndStandUpComedy stand up comedian]], writer and director. Early on in his career he wrote material for ''Series/SpittingImage'' and ''Weekending'' before teaming up with Richard Herring to write material for ''Series/TheDayToday'''s radio predecessor ''OnTheHour''. Lee And Herring later started in their radios [[SketchComedy sketch show]] ''Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World'' (Radio 4) and ''Series/FistOfFun'' (Radio 1) and presented three series of ''Lee and Herring'' on Radio 1 which mixed sketches which music chosen by the duo themselves. They later starred in a television version of ''Fist of Fun'' and a live Sunday afternoon show called ''This Morning With Richard Not Judy''. Lee then moved away from performing to concentrate on directing shows for fellow comedians {{The Mighty Boosh}} and Simon Munnery before co-writing and directing the notorious musical ''[[Series/TheJerrySpringerShow Jerry Springer]] - The Opera'' which attracted a prosecution for blasphemy. He then returned to stand-up and, in 2007, was awarded the dubious honour of being the 41st best Stand Up Comedian (which he took as the title of his next tour). He returned to television with ''Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle'', a mixture of stand-up and sketches, with three series filmed.

* CrazyPrepared: The opening routine of his fourth DVD 'If You Prefer A Milder Comedian, Please Ask For One' has a classic example. Ostensibly he starts by complaining about a piece of officiousness from Caffe Nero refusing to recognise that he has enough stamps on his card for a free coffee. However, the routine would constantly fail due to the fact that no-one in the audience could see what was wrong with the card (there were three stamps in blue) which made it look as if Lee was complaining about absolutely nothing. However, he would suddenly reveal that this was all a set up by going off stage and coming back on with a '''huge''' painted mock-up of the card painted by himself to show the three blue stamps.

* DisposableSexWorker: He rips into the ''[[BritishNewspapers Daily Mail]]'' columnist Richard Littlejohn for displaying this attitude, imagining Littlejohn travelling the UK carving "Prostitute... not someone who works as a prostitute... I hate women. Obviously. Sincerely, Richard Littlejohn... [[CountryMatters cunt]]" onto the graves of such victims.

* CreatorBreakdown: "41st Best Standup" is deliberately based around him supposedly having one of these. To the point that he ends up standing in the audience yelling without a microphone about how he wasted his money on a insect costume for a TV pilot that wasn't picked up.
** At the end of "Milder Comedian" he has a minor one over a pear cider advert.
** "Carpet Remnant World" has him slowly descend into anguished desperation because his life is so mundane that it hasn't provided him with any material.

* OneOfUs: He has an encyclopediac knowledge of Marvel comics, particularly the Incredible Hulk. (He once challenged an audience member to ask him a question about The Hulk comics strip; when the audience member jokingly asked him what colour he was, Stewart Lee correctly replied that he was grey for the first few issues).

-->The old "nothing" times, remember? When there was nothing? Ah, it was brilliant. There was no planets, was there? And there was no suns, was there? No. [[RuleOfThree There was no crime]]... make of that what you will. You could leave your house unlocked, couldn't you? Cause it didn't exist.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: His show '41st Best Stand Up Comedian' was based on the fact that Stewart's mother once raved about a joke told by cabaret entertainer and former TV Quiz show host Tom O'Connor, which she said was better than anything Stewart had done. When he had nearly finished writing the show, he rang his mum to ask for permission to use this in the show...she responded that the comedian she liked wasn't Tom O'Connor but someone she couldn't remember. Rather than abandon the idea, Stew thought that the idea the his own mother thought he wasn't as good as some unknown comedian was so hilarious that he incorporated it into the show
