Comedian who has had a long career focussing on stand-up sets. In 1992, he was given his own series by Channel 4 and toured extensively during the 1990s. He won the 2001 series of Celebrity Big Brother despite pleading to be voted out several times. He has appeared several times on Have I Got News for You and, less surprisingly, as a guest on Jonathan Ross's chat show which is made by Dee's production company, Open Mike.

Despite some troubles with alcohol misuse in the past, his career is on a high at the moment with the successful BBC Four (latterly BBC Two) sitcom Lead Balloon being well regarded.


Once tried to begin a gig in front of an audience of 200 prisoners at HM Prison Perth, most of whom had remurdered, by announcing "I was on the bus the other day", and was surprised to hear one of the inmates shout "lucky you".

He hosted a one-off quiz show A Question of Comedy for Comic Relief's Red Nose Day 2007, but it was pulled after one of the participants, Jade Goody, was involved in a Celebrity Big Brother-related scandal between recording and (non-)transmission.

He played the part of sadistic games teacher Doug Digby in the 1997 pilot for the popular ITV 1970's-set sitcom "The Grimleys", alongside Samantha Janus and Noddy Holder. He was replaced in the role by Brian Conley in the resulting series.

Shares his date of birth (24 September 1962) with Ally McCoist.
