Stewart Graham Lee

Stewart Graham Lee (b. 5 April 1968) is a British stand-up comedian, writer and director. Lee was born in Wellington, Shropshire. He was adopted as a child and grew up in Solihull in the West Midlands– his adoptive parents separated when he was four, and he was raised by his mother. He attended Solihull School, a local independent school, on a part scholarship, and received what he calls a "waifs and strays bursary" due to his status as an adoptee. He read English at Oxford. In December 2011, he won British Comedy Awards for best male television comic and best comedy entertainment programme for his series Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle.
