How I escaped my certain fate: the life and deaths of a stand-up comedian

Lee, Stewart, 1968-

In 2001, after over a decade in the business, Stewart Lee quit stand-up, disillusioned and drained, and went off to direct a loss-making opera about Jerry Springer. This book details his return to live performance, and the journey that took him from an early retirement to his position as the most critically acclaimed stand-up in Britain
