Lee and Herring on Ben Elton

August 8, 2005

A beautiful passage from today's Grauniad interview with Richard Herring and Stewart Lee:

"The most interesting thing about Elton in the last five years," says Lee, "is the way that he's become a despised figure. You know you have to give titles to your stand-up shows; if I was Ben Elton I'd call it Fascinating Betrayal and try and justify my position. Instead, I expect he's going to dismiss that and then talk about fatherhood, or try and regain a bit of ground. It'll be like the elephant in the living room: you can't discuss Ben Elton's massive boil of hypocrisy that needs to be lanced."
