Lee Mack is one of the UK’s most recognisable and celebrated comics. His relentless determination to have fun is marvellously infectious, while his energy, finely crafted one-liners, and quick ad-libs have made Lee a firm favourite in households across the country. Lee exhibited all of this in June 2022 while hosting the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Party at the Palace to over 13 million viewers, as well as hosting the 2022 Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall which he first performed stand-up at back in 2010.
Lee first came to prominence winning So You Think You're Funny at the 1995 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Five years later, he was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award (Perrier) for his sketch comedy show, which also included comic actress Catherine Tate. Since then he has performed multiple, hugely successful stand-up tours across the country and in more recent years has been selling out some of the UK’s biggest theatres with long-time collaborators David Mitchell and Rob Brydon.
Since 2006 Lee has been starring, writing and Exec Producing the BBC’s multi-award-winning and critically acclaimed sitcom Not Going Out. Now the longest-running sitcom on air in the UK the show is set to reach its 100th episode in the upcoming series. As the quick-witted team captain on Would I Lie To You, alongside Rob Brydon and David Mitchell, 2020 saw Lee’s performance on this show win him a BAFTA for Best Entertainment Performance.
As an actor Lee has appeared in Inside No.9, Dr Who, Murder They Hope, Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans, and Semi-Detached. In 2018 he made his West End stage debut starring in Molière’s The Miser and last month he performed in a guest spot for Bleak Expectations at the Criterion Theatre.
As a host Lee is also known for ITV’s hugely successful new Saturday night game show The 1% Club, which was immediately recommissioned and won a Broadcast Award in 2023. Lee has also become an integral supporter, and sometime soccer player, for UNICEF’s Soccer Aid charity, which, somewhat incredibly, saw him scoring the winning goals for the World XI team the last two years in a row and returning to the team again in 2023.
Sarah Alexander is perhaps best known to television audiences for playing Susan Walker for four seasons on the hit show Coupling, written by The Unfriend’s Steven Moffat. She has also starred in such award-winning series as Smack the Pony, Green Wing, Me and Mrs Jones and The Worse Week of my Life.
