In 1992 Jack hosted the critically acclaimed The Jack Dee Show on Channel 4 which went on to run for two series, he then moved to ITV where he hosted Jack Dee's Saturday Night (1995) and Jack Dee's Sunday Service (1997). By 2000 he had moved to BBC 1 and presented two series of Jack Dee's Happy Hour.

In 2004 Jack hosted for BBC1 his BAFTA nominated Jack Dee Live at the Apollo which has quickly followed by a second series in 2005. In 2006 Jack teamed up with Pete Sinclair to write the sitcom Lead Balloon for BBC4/BBC2, which was re-commissioned for a new series of 8 episodes for BBC2 in 2007.
