Bobby Lee; His Journey From Addiction To Sobriety
Lee is sober for 16 years now but things were much difficult back in the days.
He started taking marijuana and methamphetamine when he was just 12. He went through three drug-rehabilitation attempts in past.
Here's Bobby Lee talking about his drug addiction:
Lee revealed that during his period of drug abuse, he competed in a wrestling tournament and also won it. When he started performing on MADtv, a producer told him to become sober otherwise his career would be in danger.
He told his story of how he got fired on 'This Is Not Happening':
"Over the months I developed an eating disorder. I couldn't stop eating Vicodin. Starting to eat five a day, I eventually took 40 a day. It was a disease and it got worse and worse."
"After two years of it, they gave me an intervention. They said, 'You're doing too many drugs, and we want you to stop.' During the show in front of 400 people, I have three pages of dialogues but I knew six words all right?"
Well, it was just the end. He explained,
"I shit my pants down my stockings and the audience in front couldn't believe their eyes. I knew my 10 years career was over."
One of the producers of the show asked him to pack his stuff and it was just the next day he went to the rehab. After months of being sober, they hired him back in the show. Most importantly, MADtv producer Lauren Dombrowski fought a lot for him after he was fired from the very show.
Now, he is proud of spending 16 years of sobriety and we are very happy for him.
