    Bobby Lee

    At 18 years of age Lee moved out of his parents' home and took jobs in restaurants and coffee shops in the San Diego area, while also attending Palomar College for a brief period. In 1994 the coffee shop for which he was working closed. “I just went next door to get a job,” he said, “which was The Comedy Store in San Diego” (also known as the La Jolla Comedy Store).After a few months of working odd jobs at the club he decided to try stand-up during one of their amateur nights. Within a year of doing regular comedy sets he got offers to open for both Pauly Shore and Carlos Mencia. Lee also went on to work regularly at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles, a comedy club owned by Pauly Shore's mother Mitzi.
     
    Lee has admitted in several interviews that his parents had hoped he would continue on with the family business and were less-than supportive of his comedic pursuits at first. During a podcast interview conducted by fellow actor and comedian Joe Rogan on February 1, 2011, Lee stated that during the first few years he did stand-up his parents barely spoke to him, however after his appearance on the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno his father called him and apologized for not supporting his comedy career. Lee's parents currently live in Phoenix, Arizona. Lee is known to have included his family in some of his work: His younger brother has appeared in several non-speaking roles on MADtv and his entire family has appeared in a skit on the show. Lee also pitched a sitcom to Comedy Central in 2007 about a Korean family which was to star his very own family.

  • "Chelsea Lately"
  • "A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas"
  • Bobby Lee, best known from his numerous years as a cast member on Madtv, can now be seen as a regular guest on E!’s “Chelsea Lately” and has been touring the country year-round with his hilariously unpredictable stand-up.

    A native of San Diego, CA, Lee was expected to follow in his father's footsteps, running the family clothing store. After stints in a local rock band and at the local community college, he was spotted by Frank Burns, the legendary manager of La Jolla's Comedy Store. In 1995, Pauly Shore spotted Lee on stage and asked the young comedian to open for him in Las Vegas. It was at that point that Lee met Shore's mother, the celebrated owner of the Comedy Store, Mitzi Shore. Lee became a regular at the club, and also went on the road with the comic Carlos Mencia. Bobby went on to gain success from there, including landing a cast role on MADtv.

    Joining the show in 1999, Bobby quickly became an audience favorite on the longrunning sketch show, which in total air for 14 seasons on Fox. Bobby became known for his unique brand of pain?inducing, physical humor. He created such memorable original characters as the comically confused film critic “Johnny Gan,” the world’s worst interpreter “Bae Sung;” and hapless warrior the Blind kung Fu Master.” And audiences have loved his takes on such real?world figures as Connie Chung and North Korean President Kim Jong Il, and a memorable take on presidential hopeful John McCain.parodies and politically incorrect humor.

    Lee's film credits include "Kickin’ It Old School" and "Killer Pad"; both features will be released later this year. In summer 2004, he appeared in the big screen comedy "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle." Lee also appeared in "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Mind of Mencia," and has performed stand?up on "Late Friday," "Premium Blend" and "The Tonight Show."

    He currently lives in Los Angeles.
