How I Escaped My Certain Fate

by Stewart Lee - £9.99  Faber and Faber (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571254811 | ISBN 10: 0571254810

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 details his return to live performance, and his cautious creep towards his position as the most critically-acclaimed stand-up in Britain.
Here is a blow-by-blow account of his snail-paced comeback, in the form of annotated transcripts of the three full-length shows that sealed his reputation, and details of his professional trials during the period.
