Who is Bobby Lee?

Born Robert Lee Jr. on the 18th September 1971, in San Diego California USA, he is a successful stand-up comedian and actor, probably best known to the world for being a part of the sketch comedy series “MADtv” from 2001 to 2009, and as Kenneth Park in the comedy films “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle”, and “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas”, among many other accomplishments.

Early Life, Brother, Family, and Education

The older son born to Robert Lee Sr. and his wife Jeannie, Bobby went to Poway High School in Poway, California. His younger brother is Steve Lee, who is now a successful musician and podcaster. After turning 18, Bobby moved away from his parents’ house and took several odd jobs in order to support his living and education expenses, as he attended Palomar College; however, he didn’t finish his studies.

Drug Addiction

Bobby had severe problems with drug abuse from the age of just 12 years, starting as a heavy user of meth and marijuana, while also becoming familiar with LSD. Five long years passed, and Bobby was finally sober after three rehab attempts. According to reports, during his drug abuse time Bobby still won a wrestling tournament. He apparently remained drugs free for 12 years, until depression hit him after receiving negative criticism of his comedy skills. However, Bobby managed to bounce back quickly, and since then has stayed away from drugs.

Career Beginnings

After he left his parents’ house, Bobby had a job in a coffee shop, but after it was closed he joined The Comedy Store in San Diego, a comedy club. At first, he didn’t have any contact with comedy, but after a few months he decided to try himself out during one of the many amateur nights held in the club. He was well-received by the public, and after almost a year of regular performances, he was spotted by Pauly Shore and Carlos Mencia, and was subsequently booked into a gig at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles, owned by Pauly Shore’s mother Mitzi.

Big Break and Rise to Prominence

2001 was the year of Bobby Lee; he was made a cast member of MADtv, actually their only East Asian member, and remained in the show until 2009, when the whole series was canceled. During this time, Bobby went through a lot; after first being told that he wasn’t that funny, he became a star following his portrayal of such characters as Kim Jong-il, Conne Chung, Dr. Poon Ji-Sum, and Yamanashi, among others. As his popularity rose, Bobby was cast in films and TV series, playing Kenneth Park in the comedy film “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle” in 2004, while in 2007 he featured in the comedy film “Kickin’ It Old Skool”, starring Jamie Kennedy, Maria Menounos and Miguel A. Nunez Jr. The following year, Bobby appeared in the Golden Globe Award-nominated action comedy film “Pineapple Express”, with James Franco, Seth Rogen and Gary Cole in the lead roles, all of which made Bobby extremely popular with casting directors and producers, and provided new, somewhat different roles for Bobby.

Continual Success

After the cancellation of MADtv, Bobby continued with his own stand-up comedy routines, but also pursued acting further, making several more notable appearances. In 2010 he appeared in Harland Williams’ fantasy comedy film “Fudgy Wudgy Fudge Face”, while the next year he had a notable role in the comedy film “Paul”. From 2012 to 2013 he played Dr. Yamamoto in the TV series “Animal Practice”, concurrently starring in the romantic comedy film “Wedding Palace”, next to Brian Tee and Hye-jeong Kang. In recent years, Bobby portrayed Truman in the TV series “Love”, and latterly was Arthur in the TV series “Splitting Up Together” (2018). He is now working on several projects, including the television film “High & Tight”, and the comedy film “Extracurricular Activities”, both scheduled for release late in 2018.
