Lee Evans

"A DAZZLING COMIC GENIUS"

Now established as one of Britain's best-loved and biggest comedy stars, ex-boxer Lee Evans has captured audiences' and critics' imagination with his irrepressible physicality and disarming charm.

The winner of the Time Out Award for Comedy, Smash Hits Award and the highly coveted Perrier Award, he has been described by the press as "a dazzling comic genius".

Lee has recently finished filming Plots With a View (co-starring Christopher Walken and Brenda Blethyn) for Autumn release in the UK and the Hollywood movie Highbinders, with martial arts king Jackie Chan, due for release in 2003.

After leaving art school, Lee spent six years touring clubs all across the British Isles and, eventually, on what became the alternative comedy circuit, gaining a regular weekly spot at London's famous Comedy Store.

In 1993, Lee achieved a life long ambition...
Like a lot of new established comics, his break came in 1993 when Lee took the Edinburgh Festival by storm by winning the Perrier Award. Also in the same year he achieved a life long ambition by performing and selling out for two nights at The London Palladium.
Following the sell-out success of his eight week season in the West End, Lee took his show 'Same World, Different Planet' on a major UK tour throughout May, June and July 1996. Lee then broke all box office records at The Lyric Theatre, in London's West End, with the highest ever advance for a solo comedian in a Stoll Moss Theatre. He subsequently extended his run for a further two weeks at The Apollo Theatre where he recorded a Christmas special, The Lee Evans Show for the ITV network and the video Lee Evans Live - The Different Planet Tour.



TV
In early Spring 2001, Lee hit the UK TV screens with the BBC 1 sitcom Lee Evans - So What Now? in which he starred and co-wrote. Lee was nominated as Most Popular Comedy Performer at The National Television Awards 2001 for his portrayal of the hapless accident-prone character.
