Olivia Lee is a female comedian and writer. Olivia got her first big break on Channel 4’s hit comedy show “Balls of Steel” with her own slot called Prank TV with Miss Lee, where she demonstrated her fearlessness and ability to boldly go where many others would not dare! Off the back of this success she was offered to create, write and star in her own comedy vehicle for Channel 4, “Olivia Lee’s Naughty Bits”. In turn this led to her own series which she created and wrote; “Olivia Lee: Dirty, Sexy, Funny” – this was a showcase for Olivia’s comic characters which launched on Comedy Central UK.
The first series of “Dirty Sexy Funny” was a hit, leading to an even more audacious second series. The USA soon called and Olivia was invited to regularly appear on NBC’s “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno “where she wrote and provided her own brand of crazy comedy for the show. That led to truTV giving Olivia her own comedy pilot ‘The Olivia Lee Show’ – which Ben Stiller produced with his company Red Hour. Olivia created and wrote the pilot which was shot in 2016.
As well as creating comedy TV formats Olivia has also had many script commissions. She has scripted sit-com projects in development with Merman Films, Happy Tramp, Golden Path and a new US comedy show that she’s just completed a development deal for with US producer Simon Fields.
As well as preforming Olivia is also an accomplished writer and has many sit-com / comedy drama scripts in development with broadcasters. She’s just piloted her own vehicle ‘Make Me A Misogynist’ for C4 which see’s Olivia infiltrating male dominated groups, but undercover – as a variety of different characters – all male!
She is also in the process of writing her one woman show that will tour the UK at the end of the year coinciding with her release of her album featuring comedy mindfulness tracks for Mums ‘Mindful Mum; How Not To Lose Your Total Fucking Shit’, the tour will be a live version of the album.
She’s just finished filming ‘Who’s The Daddy’ where she had the lead role and is about to commence filming on Series 3 of ‘In The Long Run’ for SKY.
