Tbf Bongos Bingo looks like it might be decent if you get into it and there’s a good crowd, but it also looks like the absolute embodiment of Lad Bible banter Monty LewLew

You play bingo but like 70% of the numbers get turned into songs and it turns into a rave/mad party, prizes are pretty funny too.

Love how Lee separates the audience between those who actually understand his comedy and those who want to give the impression of getting it, but would secretly prefer to be at Mickey Flanagan.

Anyway, I'm sure mak and Partridge will enjoy themselves.

(08-03-2019, 07:35 AM)2NoDealFish Wrote: To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Stewart Lee. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Stewart's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Stewart Lee truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Stewart's existencial catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Stewart Lee's genius unfolds itself on stage. What fools... how I pity them. ? And yes by the way, I DO have a Stewart Lee tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

I was actually hesitant to go and see Lee because his fan base tends to be heavy on wanks like you 2na. Glad you're not going. Monty Smug

A subtle joke and it went over your heads. I'm sure you'll both enjoy Lee.
