Bobby Lee        

Actor & Comedian; Best Known for "Mad TV" & "Pineapple Express"

Bobby Lee, a native of San Diego, 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 a local comedy club, and the rest, as they say, is history. Lee rapidly became an in demand stand-up comic, with his unique Korean American perspective and charismatic onstage personality.

In 1995, comedian Pauly Shore spotted Lee on stage and asked him to open his act in Las Vegas. Lee subsequently met Shore's mother, Mitzi Shore. He became a regular of Shore's comedy club and went on the road with comic Carlos Mencia.

He joined MADtv in 1999, and became a fan favorite, 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. Audiences also loved his takes on such real world figures as Connie Chung, and North Korean President Kim Jong-il.

After MADtv’s conclusion in 2009 Lee went on to appear in a variety of other TV series including Curb Your Enthusiasm and Mind of Mencia. Lee’s voice can currently be heard on the Hulu series The Awesomes.
