Toilet Books

I'm devoting this post to giving a plug to Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle which started this week. (In case you haven't heard of it, it's on Monday nights, BBC2 at 10pm)

I'm a longtime fan of Stewart Lee, going back to "Fist of Fun" and "This Morning With Richard Not Judy" with his long-time writing partner Richard Herring. But he's been away from TV for a while - not surprising, given some of his targets. But if you get the chance to see him perform live and you like dry observational humour he's just what you need.

Anyway here is the link to the BBC iPod of this week's show in which he talks about trashy celebrity books and publishing generally. Very funny.

I watched this after the agent rejection and, boy, did it make me feel better. Always cathartic to have a good laugh. :)

Yes, indeed. I laughed so much I nearly dropped my copy of My Booky Wook. :-)
