Lee Hurst has been doing stand up comedy for over 30 years and is confident of getting his first laugh any day now. He has not looked back since starting stand up. He was brought to the British public's notice when he appeared as a team regular on the hit show They Think It's All Over.
Following two years on the show, Lee left to start his own Backyard Comedy Club. Lee finally left the East End of London (he is a genuine cockney as he was born within the sound of a mugging) and moved out to Kent. By accident Lee started a series of regular gigs under The Local Comedy Club brand. These gigs were finally stopped in 2020 by the Corona Pandemic which Lee thought was a bit harsh as they could have just asked him to stop and saved all the fuss.
