Stewart Lee on being a connaisseur

Stewart Lee

“Now if you’re an impotent, vasectomised, 45-year-old, functioning alcoholic father of two, you can’t fail to have noticed how all supermarket alcohol marketing campaigns are now targeted directly at you, aren’t they? You walk around the Sainsbury’s aisles, every week, there’s more of these exotic bottled beers with names like “Wizard Sleeve”, “Goblin’s Hole”, “Catamite’s Regret”. And the pretend-folksy names and fake artisanal packaging of these bottled beers conspires to give the functioning 45-year-old alcoholic the impression that he is not a functioning alcoholic, but is instead some kind of connaisseur of beer. Cutting a valuable, exploratory swathe through an uncharted wilderness of 7.8 per cent proof alcohol.”

Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, season 3 episode 6.
