Stewart Lee – “On Not Writing”

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 ( ).

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.

For further info, see the St Edmund Hall Writers’ Directory ( ) and join in discussions on the Hall Writers’ Forum ( ).
