This BBC radio comedy show was broadcast in two series, of 6 episodes each, plus a Christmas special and a New Year special, from 2005 to 2007. A manic mixture of sketches and stand-up wherein Lee is supported by comedians such as Milton Jones, Mark Watson and Rhod Gilbert, plus music from a stellar array of guests (including Tony Hadley, Tom Robinson, Midge Ure, Suggs, Alison Moyet, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Jamelia), all of whom are dragooned into the tomfoolery and mercilessly lampooned.

Lee Mack, Bafta award-winner and host of BBC One’s `They Think It’s All Over’, star of ITV’s `The Sketch Show’ and BAFTA Award winner, stars in this hilarious comedy show as heard on BBC Radio 2. Participating in the manic mix of sketches and stand-up are special musical guests Toyah Willcox, Midge Ure, Suggs, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Tom Robinson and Tony Hadley. Lee is also joined by comedians Noel Britton, Mick Miller, Milton Jones, Rhod Gilbert, Mike Wilmot and Aussie Trevor Crook. Ably assisted by long-suffering sidekick Angela McHale and house band leader Steve Brown (`Knowing Me, Knowing You”s Glenn Ponder), Lee Mack brings you a new show for the 21st century. Where else can you hear Tony Hadley playing cops and robbers and Suggs amid ghostly goings-on? Just don’t ask Midge Ure about Band Aid… `Fast-moving, well executed and blindingly funny stand up’ – Times
