After earning his spurs on the comedy circuit Lee Hurst made his name as a quick-witted panellist on the BBC quiz show, They Think It"s All Over. Although he has no sporting prowess, and knows next to nothing about football, he won over viewers with his easy banter.
Lee"s other credits include presenting Shark Tank and Loose Ends as well as guest appearances on That"s Showbusiness, The Stand Up Show, Have I Got News For You and Don"t Give Up Your Day Job. He also stepped up to the plate as team captain on Hold The Front Page and What In The World.
Back in the real world Lee built and ran his own venue, the Backyard Comedy Club in London"s Bethnal Green. He has since converted it to the "FymFigBar" and continues to act as resident compere.
Lee has performed in cabaret for dozens of household name companies, from Britvic and SpecSavers to O2 - at his best simply bouncing off members of the audience. He has also hosted awards ceremonies for the travel, IT, printing, commercial vehicle and, perhaps surprisingly, the beauty industry.
