Stewart Lee has to be one of the world’s best stand-ups. He doesn’t just rely on observational crap like Michael Chub-faced McIntyre et al. He’s witty, persceptive and clever.

Here he architects a fantastic joke about the light fingered Joe Pasquale. In fact, it’s obviously the end of his set, but he manages to get numerous gags out. And he’s right, if Joe Pasquale was in your garden, you wouldn’t ask him to leave – the joe doesn’t work for him. So Pasquale gets outed on many levels. Poor to thieve in the first place, worse to not be able to execute it. I bet he winced when he watched this, whilst 300 and odd thousand others laugh.
