I was looking for a generic Lee Mack thread but the only one here was locked.

Anyway it looks like a Lee Mack night. I've just watched Would I Lie To You? , just about to watch Semi-Detached and then he's apparently on Cats Does Countdown. I have to add that I am a fan.

I like him on the panel shows,he's very quick.Not his sit com though.The first series was v good with Megan Dodds but it went down hill when she left.

Ditto for me when Tim Vine left. My interest in the series went rapidly downhill.

I can't put my finger on it, but there's just something about him that I don't like.

I think he's one of the best comedians around. His wit on WILTY is extraordinary, like Paul Merton in his prime. I still enjoy Not Going Out, though I admit it's more of a cosy habit than must see TV.

Semi Detached however is dire.

So extraordinary, it makes you realise how much of that is rehearsed between the chair and the two captains. The three of them are funny men, no doubt; but NO ONE is that sharp.

He's got the fastest mind in comedy, who else could beat him to a punch line ? I wonder how or if he relaxes.

You should see him live and listen to some of his interviews. He is that sharp.

Lee Mack is.

I've met him a couple of times, and seen him talk and chat off stage. I can promise you he absolutely is that sharp.

The other one, it turned out, was mis-named and in relation to a particular stand-up tour that already had a thread. So it remains locked, and there's no generic one. :)

His appearance on Desert Island Discs was a bit of a change of pace for him. One of the better guests I thought if only because he made me dig out a James track I'd loved but completely forgotten about,
