Bio

Bobby Lee is a an American actor and comedian best known as a cast member of the sketch comedy television series MADtv (2001-2009) and for his roles in the films Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Pineapple Express and The Dictator.

He also starred as Dr. Yamamoto, an offbeat veterinarian who is devoted to his practice, but equally devoted to gambling and partying with the rest of the staff, in the short-lived television sitcom Animal Practice, in 2012.

Lee is also a regular guest on E!'s Chelsea Lately, and has toured America with his stand-up comedy.

A native of San Diego, California, Lee 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 La Jolla's Comedy Store.

In 1995, Pauly Shore saw Lee onstage and asked the young comedian to open for him in Las Vegas. It was at that point that Lee met Shore's mother, the celebrated owner of the Comedy Store, Mitzi Shore. Lee became a regular at the club, and also went on the road with the comic Carlos Mencia.

Lee went on to gain success from there, including landing a cast role on MADtv. Joining the show in 1999, Lee quickly became an audience favourite on the long-running sketch show, which in total aired for 14 seasons.

Lee became known for his unique brand of pain-inducing, physical humour. 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.

He had takes on such real-world figures as Connie Chung and North Korean President Kim Jong-il, and a memorable take on presidential hopeful John McCain.

Lee's film credits include Kickin' It Old School and Killer Pad; both features were released in 2012. In summer 2004, he appeared in the big screen comedy Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.

Lee also appeared in Curb Your Enthusiasm and Mind of Mencia, and has performed stand-up on Late Friday, Premium Blend and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

He currently lives in Los Angeles.
