Described by the BBC as a “top up-and-coming comedy performer”, Lee Kyle has spent much of his life on a never-ending quest to never have a proper job.
His book ‘Spandex Ballet’ reached the top ten in Comedians Biographies on Amazon UK. He was in an all-male Spice Girls tribute act before spending a decade as a professional wrestler and then trying his hand at stand-up. Managing the difficult trick of being both odd and relatable, his jokes veer between the clever and the silly and deliver more than their fair share of belly laughs.

Whilst regularly appearing at some of the biggest and best comedy clubs across the UK, both as an MC and an act, Pete has also performed at large festivals such as the Isle Of Wight, gigged across Europe and provided support for touring acts such as Doc Brown.
