The full boxset of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, which consists of 24 episodes, has been added to the BBC iPlayer. The show blends stand-up comedy with sketches, and it’s well worth a look.
The BBC is giving Stewart Lee a bit of a plug ahead of the first screening of Content Provider, Lee’s latest stand-up special, which will premiere on BBC Two on July 28th at 10.45pm.
Chortle reports that legendary comic book writer Alan Moore will pop up in Content Provider, posing challenging questions to Lee in between segments of stand-up.
Speaking of comedy gold on the iPlayer, British Comedy Guide previously reported that the full boxsets of Extras, Miranda, Citizen Khan, The League Of Gentlemen and Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps have been added to the Beeb’s online platform.
“Comedy fans looking for a laugh this summer will be spoilt for choice, as some of the BBC’s funniest series are returning to BBC iPlayer”, the BBC said in a short but sweet statement.
Shane Allen, comedy commissioning chief at the BBC, added this: “This selection of classic and contemporary shows is testament that great comedy lasts forever.”
This follows the news that every episode of Doctor Who, since the reboot in 2005, has been re-added to iPlayer.
Licence fee payers will surely be happy to hear that all of this classic content is now viewable at no extra cost.
We’ll bring you more news from the Beeb as we hear it.
