Lee Mack

Biography

Lee Mack is one of the UK's most recognisable and celebrated comics. His relentless determination to have fun is marvellously infectious, and leaves his audiences exhausted by laughter. His energy, finely crafted one-liners, and quick ad-libs create an elusive star quality. Lee is currently the face of Saturday night primetime entertainment. His first series of his variety show Lee Mack's All Star Cast recently aired on BBC One to great success.

Early 2011 also saw the return to our screens of Not Going Out, Lee's BBC One sitcom. The show has won both the Break-Through Award - Behind the Screen at the RTS Awards, and the Gold Rose D'or award for Best Sitcom. The sitcom is currently on its 4th series, and the BBC has commissioned two further series of the popular show.

In 2010 Lee toured the country with his twice extended tour, Going Out, continuing Lee's success with his touring stand up. Lee's previous sold out solo tour was nominated for Best Live Stand Up Tour at the 2006 British Comedy Awards. This coincided with the release of his first live DVD - Lee Mack Live. His second live DVD, Going Out was released in 2010.

Lee is a team captain on returning series Would I Lie To You (BBC One) appearing alongside David Mitchell and Rob Brydon. He has also won a BAFTA for his contribution to The Sketch Show (ITV1) and was host of They Think Its All Over (BBC One) and two series of The Lee Mack Show on BBC Radio 2 (nominated for a Sony Award).

Lee Mack has also frequently appeared on Have I Got News for You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Live at The Apollo, QI, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and The Royal Variety Performance.
