When comedian Lea was elected by the viewers of the TV series “Stand Up Britain” as outright winner, comedy had a new star. Lea had however been working as a stand up comedian for many years but finally got his big break when he scooped the title, trophy and a 1st prize of £7000 on the live final screened by ITV1 in October 2002. Lea was up against 6 other comedians from the 144 who started in the competition, and winning the final with 75% of the total vote, including first place in London, North West, and Yorkshire regions.
One of the few comedians able to work in both “mainstream” and “alternative” environments. Offering a traditional stand up act, Lea appeals to audiences young and old, with an adult, yet inoffensive style.
Currently proving extremely popular at corporate events and a huge hit on the after dinner circuit.
