I’m too stupid to understand Stewart Lee.
And his experiments with Brechtian Irony.
He pretends to be cut from the same cloth
As the smug bastards club of comedic sloth.
Americans can’t understand the ribald sophistication
Of the comedic genius of a truly cultured nation.
How could I know what this accomplished savant is on about?
I’m just a rube, and his in-jokes always leave me out.
He’s made it clear he’s too clever to enjoy Game of Thrones.
And his words hurt me even more than sticks and stones.
I love his impressions of Jeremy Clarkson and Steve Lamac
But simply can’t understand his more subtle attacks.
He makes fun of James Corden just for being a fan
And any comedian obtuse enough to be American.
Stuart Lee proudly insists he’s a left-wing elitist
Unless he’s not, and he’s just taking the piss.
How stupid can you be and still pretend to be smart?
Is this satire, silliness or a higher form of art?
I would pretend to be smarter than Stuart Lee,
But I know he would immediately see through me.
I’ve always liked finely tuned satire in comedy,
But I’m too stupid to understand Stewart Lee.
