It's only a review...like they have on that internet

The only truly appropriate and proficient means of reviewing any piece of art is to approach it from a position of unbiased indifference. That's not going to happen today. I am biased. I have a vested interest in the promotion of Mr Lee through this review for those interested in his work. Stewart's comedy style has angered, confused and upset many. His repetitive nature and subsequent lack of 'jokes', has baffled comedy goers for decades now. If you are the type of person who believes comedy is a man or woman, standing on stage, telling you about things you already know about in a slightly different way, to potentially highlight the comical aspects of everyday life; this show is not for you. Instead, this show is for those who prefer their comedy to be cutting, cured and crafted. Stewart probably agonises over every word he chooses in his act. And for what? The bustling of laughter that wouldn't wake a sleeping housefly. In my opinion, we don't deserve him. We don't do him justice. And I know that you, the reader (should this ever be read), will be saying to yourself, "that person is just flattering that man due to some potentially undiscovered homoerotic adoration". Well you're wrong. I am flattering him because it is justified. Stewart manages to completely involve the audience in his act. No matter how apparently offensive the material, no matter how self aware or seemingly smug he is, he never forgets why he is where he is...to make people laugh. And he is rewarded by the live audience. Sometimes with what can only be described as a 'round of applaud'. (But who wants riotous applause just for mentioning the name of an Italian bread- based side dish?) But yet he seems to be shunned by a mainstream audience who don't appreciate, understand or see the relevance of his material. But here's my point, no art is inherently relevant. The Mona Lisa, The Venus de Milo and Dali's 'Canabalismo' are all, for lack of a better word, irrelevant. Except that they bring pleasure and joy to those who choose to accept their relevance. They provide their audience, if only for a split second, a sense of the achievement of the artist. What I'm saying is that basically, right, Stewart is a really good comedian who appears marginalised, but is, in fact, reserved for those willing to attempt to begin to understand his relevance. Support Stew, buy the DVD. And if you want to see how the misinterpretation of art manifest's itself as rage, then hop along to the bad reviews section of Stewart Lee's website. Otherwise view any of his TV or live stand up DVD works, and allow yourself to find a new appreciation for the possibilities of comedy.
