When Stan Lee Did a Geordie Accent, 'Ye Bugger'...

When Stan Lee Did a Geordie Accent, ‘Ye Bugger’…

Posted by December 2, 2018 Comment

Stan Lee was married to Joan Boocock Lee for over seventy years, until her death two years ago.

She was born in Gosforth in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England, and lived in the nearby coastal town South Shields before moving to America, following her career as a model, and marrying Sanford Wells, before she met Stan Lee, divorced her husband and married Stan hours later.

And while she used a strong received pronounciation accent in her subsequent life, she could still bring back her accent from a child, known as a Geordie accent.

Well, in this video-of-a-video taken at the bar at the Harvey Awards at Baltimore Comic Con in 2011, a fan from Newcastle asked Stan Lee if he could do a Geordie accent like his wife.

He gave it a damn good try…
