in conversation with Michael Rosen
Sunday 19 June 2011
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. How I Escaped My Certain Fate is his own account of a remarkable comeback and is everything we have come to expect from the man: fiercely intelligent, unsparingly honest and very funny. In conversation with Michael Rosen, Stewart will be reading from his book and sharing his life history. Experience how it feels to be the subject of a blasphemy prosecution!
