Comedy Club with Lee Hurst
After earning his spurs on the UK comedy circuit Lee became the warm-up man for many TV shows including Have I Got News For You? Although he had no sporting prowess and he knew next to nothing about football, Lee appeared as a regular panellist in the first five series of They Think It’s All Over during which he won over close to 12 million viewers each week with his quick witted banter.
Lee's other TV credits include presenting Shark Tank, Saturday Live, Salvage Squad and The Warehouse, and guest appearances on The Stand Up Show and Have I Got News For You. Lee was the creator of Bring Me the Head of Light Entertainment, which ran for five series on Channel 5 between 1997 and 2000. On radio, Lee has guested on The Steve Wright Show, Euromix, Two Men and a Transmitter and The Robert Elms Show. He was team captain on Hold The Front Page. He also presented Wriggling with Eels, a study of Cockney comedians for BBC Radio 4.
In 2000, Lee decided to semi-retire and concentrate on running his comedy venue, the Backyard Comedy Club in London's Bethnal Green, acting as resident compere. His touring shows include ‘Man v Woman’, ‘Too Scared to Leave the House’, Things That Make You Go Aaarggh’ and ‘Comedy Show No.9’ which began in 2016 and was extended into 2017 due to great demand.
Still a regular at the Backyard Comedy Club and elsewhere around the club scene. Lee is preparing for a brand new tour to start in 2018, 'Mucking About'. Lee is also organising a series of comedy nights in Kent called 'The Local Comedy Club' starting in January 2018.
