Jack Haig (5 January 1913 – 4 July 1989) was a British actor who specialised in supporting roles, mainly in TV comedy.

Haig was born and died in London. He was seen in a long list of British TV favourites: "Hugh and I", "Dad's Army", "Are You Being Served?", "Terry and June" and others. He was in "Crossroads" soap opera in the 1960s and a couple of cinema films. He achieved his greatest success as Monsieur LeClerc in BBC's "'Allo 'Allo!", a role he played until his death. His last appearance was in episode 26 at the end of series 5, where he appeared as a Flamenco dancer with an Enigma code machine hidden in his accordion.

His earlier TV work included a regular spot as a comic on "The One O'clock Show" during the 1960s. This was shown every weekday in the Tyne Tees area of ITV. He usually appeared in sketches as 'Wacky Jackie', generally playing the fool in a music hall comedy style.
