Sitter in 1 portrait
Three years after his first public performance at London's Comedy Store in 1986, Dee won the British Comedy Award for best stage newcomer. He was nominated for the Perrier Award in 1991. By 1995 he had his own series on ITV. Known for his dead-pan delivery, he often appears on television, starring in his own shows or as a guest or presenter on others. In 2001, he was the winner of the first Celebrity Big Brother programme. Dee replaced Humphrey Lyttelton in hosting the Radio 4 programme I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue (since 2009). He wrote and starred in the BBC comedy Lead Balloon, which has had four series since 2006.
