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 the winner of three British Comedy Awards.
The 9th series of Lee’s sitcom Not Going Out aired on BBC One in 2018. The show has won the RTS Break-Through Award and the Gold Rose d’Or award for Best Sitcom. With its 10th series in production, Not Going Out is currently the longest-running sitcom on British television.
Lee is also know as team captain on Would I Lie To You (BBC One) alongside Rob Brydon and David Mitchell. The 13th series will start filming in the spring.
In 2018, Lee was seen appearing in Dr Who as well as leading the pilot of new sitcom Semi-Detached (BBC Two).
In 2017, Lee made his West End stage debut by starring in Molière’s The Miser opposite Griff Rhys Jones at the Garrick Theatre. “It may be the comic’s theatrical debut, but nobody else owns the quicksilver, audience-baiting looseness here with such ease and intimacy.” Dominic Maxwell for The Times.
In October 2016, he appeared in the acclaimed Channel 4 Drama National Treasure, starring Robbie Coltrane. In 2013, Lee recorded a new 13-part comedy panel show for Sky called Duck Quacks Don’t Echo. As host of the show, Lee challenges his three 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 and was followed swiftly by a second series in 2015 and its third in 2016.
As well as being one of the best-known comedy faces on television, Lee is a brilliant stand-up. In the autumn of 2014, Lee toured with his first live stand-up show in four years, Hit the Road Mack. The tour included ten sold-out performances at the legendary Hammersmith Apollo and was filmed for DVD (released in November of that year).
Previously, in 2010, Lee had toured the country with his twice-extended tour, Going Out. Prior to that, Lee was nominated for Best Live Stand Up 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 has won a BAFTA for his contribution to The Sketch Show (ITV1), and was host of They Think It’s 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 named Lee Mack’s All Star Cast on BBC One to great success.
Lee has also frequently appeared on entertainment shows such as: Have I Got News for You; 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown (as guest captain); QI; Wimblewatch; We Love Sitcom; Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway; Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled; Never Mind the Buzzcocks; Live at The Apollo; The Graham Norton Show; Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and The Royal Variety Performance.
“If it’s a barrel of belly-laughs and achy jaw muscles you’re after, Lee Mack cuts to the funny bone like a knife”
