She got her break on Channel 4’s hit comedy show Balls of Steel with her own slot called Prank TV with Miss Lee. Off the back of this success she created her own comedy vehicle for Channel 4, Olivia Lee’s Naughty Bits. This led to her own series which she created for Comedy Central: Olivia Lee: Dirty, Sexy, Funny and ran for two successful seasons.
The USA came calling and Olivia was invited to regularly appear on NBC’s The Tonight Show With Jay Leno where she wrote and starred in her own regular comedy slot. That led to truTV giving Olivia her own comedy pilot The Olivia Lee Show – which Ben Stiller produced with his company Red Hour. She also recently created and starred in her own pilot Make Me A Misogynist for which she played a man for Channel 4. As an actor she has appeared in many TV shows.
Her feature script Pardon The Interruption has just been announced as a finalist for the prestigious Filmmatic Comedy Screenplay Awards and the WeScreenplay Awards. It has been officially selected for the New York Script Awards, International World Film Awards, Budapest Movie Awards and just got honourable mention at The Los Angeles Film and Script Awards. Her half hour comedy Scapegoat is currently a finalist in the Outstanding Screenplay TV Pilot Awards. Olivia currently has many scripted projects in development with UK production companies and broadcasters.
She launched her first album with Universal records: Mindful Mum: How Not To Lose Your Total Fuc*ing Sh!t – a unique spin on mindfulness, this was a hit and Olivia has now turned it into a live show Olivia Lee: Losing Her Total Fuc*ing Sh!t playing homage to female anger and toxic femininity. A tour of this is in the works.
