Stewart Lee joins us for a cruise through the alternative comedy scene in the 80s and the bands that helped soundtrack it
Stand-up comedian Stewart Lee (an Honorary Fellow & alumnus of St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford) delivers a talk to students that he originally gave at ‘A Celebration of Writing at the Hall’, a day of talks, discussions and readings by alumni, current students and tutors at St Edmund Hall (http://www.seh.ox.ac.uk).
Stewart discusses the fantasy that stand-up comedy is spontaneous rather than written, and describes the evolution of stand-up over the last few decades. His talk takes in a wide range of subjects from the first app he ever came across to a discussion of the value of culture in society.

John Roderick’s less inclined to play the role of the cross country troubadour in the heady days, but the indie rock elder statesman has slipped quite comfortably into the role of podcast philosopher. Come sit with us, on his leather couch.
