In an interview in The Times on 20 February 2010, Lee Cornes was cited as one of fellow comedian Sean Lock's biggest comedic influences. Lock said: "He’s not very well known but he is my main influence — he used to compere at the Comedy Store. He’s the comedians’ comedian. He used to be very unpredictable, which is a great skill in a comedian, not knowing where to go next. He also used to play the physics teacher in Grange Hill." 
He appeared as the Tooting Flasher in Matt Berry's Toast of London pilot.
He has appeared in various children's television shows such as My Parents are Aliens and Bear Behaving Badly.
