LEE MACK, the British comedian and multi-award winning star of Not Going Out and Would I Lie To You? is set to make August the funniest month of the summer in Galway when he plays three shows in the city.
Mack will give three performances of his new show, Hit The Road Mack, next month. The first of these, in the Róisín Dubh on Saturday August 23 is sold out, but there are still two more chances to see him at the Black Box Theatre, at 7.30pm, on Sunday August 24 and Monday 25. The Black Box shows are not suitable for under 12s and under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Audiences can expect high-energy banter, well-crafted gags, and sharp one-liners from Mack who has been described as “gut-bustingly funny” by The Sunday Times and whose live shows have been declared “a master class in pure comedy” by The List.Mack, born Lee Gordon McKillop, is best known for writing and starring in the sitcom Not Going Out, where he also played the main character, also called Lee. The show first aired in 2006 and is set to return for a seventh series later this year.
He has also been a team captain on BBC One comedy panel show Would I Lie to You?, and a regular panellist on Have I Got News For You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and QI. Since February 2014, Mack has presented Duck Quacks Don’t Echo, a comedy-based panel show for Sky 1.
