Have we got Stews for you?

Double DVD and ticket competition!

Series three of Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle is released on DVD on Monday – as is the second series of the Alternative Comedy Experience he curates.

And to mark 'Stewsday', as we have just christened it, we have a fantastic competition lined up.

A mammoth 30 winners will receive a copy of both DVDs – AND a pair of tickets to Lee's forthcoming A Room With A Stew tour.

At the end of series 3 of the Comedy Vehicle, Lee is asked by Chris Morris what his act is all about – and replies that the audience will know once they have watched this DVD.

'What will they know?' Morris presses.

'They will know that time has passed, and something has happened,' Lee explains.

The two-disc release DVD includes extensive unseen footage of Morris interrogating Lee as well as exclusive interview with Canadian comic Baconface, a 'programme associate' on the series.

And in programmes from the BBC Two series, Lee takes on Paul Nuttall, cornershop wine-sellers his own middle-class elitist hypocrisy and posturing and more.

The DVD is being launched with a sold-out run of gigs at London's Leicester Square Theatre starting on Tuesday, with audiences receiving a copy of the the disc with a special edition Luke Drozd slip cover for their ticket price. Although that's not what we're giving away.

Here's a trailer:

Meanwhile, the second edition of the Alternative Comedy Experience, shot at the Stand comedy club in Edinburgh, features performances from the likes of Tony Law, Isy Suttie, Simon Munnery, Josie Long, David O Doherty, Paul Foot, Bridget Christie, Henning Wehn, Kevin Eldon, Michael Legge, Nish Kumar and John Hegley.

Their stand-up is interspersed with behind-the-scenes interviews with the performers, conducted by Lee.

The two-disc set contains all 13 episodes as well as an exclusive interview and unseen live performance clip of Trevor Lock.

Today's comedy-on demand picks


This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
