Speaking on why he believes he's the best comedian in England, Lee said: "I’ve been at all my gigs and, my word, the laughs hurt my ears sometimes.

"I can do it all mate, I’m versatile. Stag dos, kids shows, thoughtful self referential hours, compering, nice gigs, crap gigs, unplayable rooms, clever jokes, stupid jokes, stories, surreal stuff."

Lee's show at The Tyne Theatre and Opera House will take place on Saturday, 20 April at 8pm.
