Comedian Lee Mack has carved a career from making people laugh, so he’s fascinated to learn that comedy runs in the blood.
Lancashire-born Lee traces his family ancestry and finds his greatgrandfather, Billy Mac, performed in his hometown of Southport as well as working as an entertainer in World War One, where he fought in the Battle of the Somme.
Lee also goes to Ireland to find out why his grandfather, Joe, was abandoned as a baby, and he learns he has a law-breaking relative who sold alcohol illegally!
