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. He is also the winner of two British Comedy Awards.
This year 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 7th series. This is the longest series to date, with ten episodes, and with this seventh series Not Going Out becomes the longest running sitcom on the BBC.
In 2013, Lee also recorded a new 13 part comedy panel show for Sky called Duck Quack's Don't Echo. As host of the show, Lee challenges his 3 celebrity guests to offer up an incredible fact in a bid to prove they have the best. Each fact is then put to the test using elaborate and hilarious methods to establish a winner. The show aired in early 2014.
This year, Lee also returned in his regular role as resident team captain on series 8 of Would I Lie To You (Sky) alongside Rob Brydon and David Mitchell. Lee is currently touring with his first live stand-up show in four years, Hit the Road Mack. This will be released on DVD at the end of November.
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.
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). In 2011, Lee hosted his own prime time Saturday night entertainment show Lee Mack’s All Star Cast on BBC One to great success.
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.
