Lee Mack was born Lee Gordon McKillop in August 1969 in Southport, Lancashire, and is now a stand-up comedian and actor. As a boy, he moved to Blackburn when his parents separated, and after leaving school worked in a bingo hall and as a stable boy looking after Red Rum. He joined Pontins as a blue coat, and was sacked from the Yarmouth camp after calling a member of the audience an offensive name, but he did manage another six months at Pontins in Morecambe.

He had various jobs before settling to study at Brunel University, and while there did his first open-mic slot in 1994. He was hooked, and less than two years later, he was working full-time as a comedian.

The following year he gained attention when he won So You Think You’re Funny, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Since that time, he has played the part of Graham, a security guard, in The Mighty Boosh, as well as hosting his own programme on BBC Radio 2 called The Lee Mack Show, and was also involved in ITV’s The Sketch Show.

Other TV appearances include They Think It’s All Over, TV Heaven, Telly Hell, and as a team captain on Would I Lie To You? a BBC panel game. Lee has also hosted Have I Got News For You on three occasions.

The BBC broadcast his first sitcom, Not Going Out, in 2006. The project was written with Tim Vine, in which Mack plays the central character, Lee. The sitcom will return to BBC in 2010 for its fourth series in late autumn. It has won great accolades, including a Rose d’Or and RTS Award.
