I love lee evans! he’s an ex boxer and also has a few film roles under his belt but i prefer him as a comedian, he’s so energetic on stage and also very sweaty! and i find him hilarious even that little laugh he makes at his own jokes!
After leaving art school, Lee spent six years touring clubs all across the British Isles and eventually landed a regular weekly spot at London’s famous Comedy Store, home to the burgeoning alternative comedy scene.
Like a lot of new established comics, Lee’s break came in 1993 when he took the Edinburgh Festival by storm, winning the prestigious Perrier Award. That same year he achieved a life-long ambition by performing and selling out for two nights at The London Palladium.
In 1996 Lee returned to London with a sell-out, eight week run at London’s Lyric Theatre breaking all box office records for a solo comedian at a Stoll Moss Theatre. Lee then took his show Same World, Different Planet on a major UK tour before returning to London for a further two-week run at the Apollo Theatre where he recorded the best-seller, Lee Evans Live- Different Planet Tour. A subsequent Christmas special of The Lee Evans Show was shot for ITV at London Studios
In 1998 Lee returned to London for a further ten-week, sell-out run at the Apollo Theatre. Success has since continued unabated, culminating in October 2002 when Lee became the first solo comedian to play Wembley Arena for two sell-out nights performing to 20,000 people.
Thumbs up lee evans!!
