Stewart Graham Lee is geboren op 5 april 1968 in Wellington, Shropshire, Engeland. Hij studeerde aan de Universiteit van Oxford. Zijn bekendste werken zijn Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle (2009), This Morning with Richard Not Judy (1998) en Stewart Lee: 41ste Best Stand-Up Ever! (2008). Hij is sinds 2006 getrouwd met Bridget Christie.

Lee heeft grote invloed (gehad) op de Britse culturele sector; naast zijn nog veel geciteerde werk in het duo Lee & Herring en zijn controversiële en spectaculaire project Jerry Springer: the Opera heeft Lee veel betekend voor andere Britse komieken als Harry Hill en Noel Fielding.[6]

Quotes

“Nothing is too controversial, but you have to think about how to do it with sensitivity. I don't try to be insensitive. I think really, really carefully about exactly what things mean and how they will affect people.”[7]

"For other comics it's about full-spectrum dominance, being on panel shows and having one-liners and being a good chat show guest and having a good seven minutes you can do on Live At The Apollo. But I really think about these subsequent finished pieces, you know? And they don't always chop up well into one-liners and routines."[8]
