Lee Evans Tribute
- Me, Myself, and I
- This is a page tributing the greatist comedian in history, Lee Evans !
Lee Evans was born in Avonmouth, Bristol, England. he went to secondary school in Billericay, Essex, at The Billericay School. After a spell as a boxer, and two years at art school in Essex, Lee decided to follow in his father's footsteps in the entertainment business. In his teens he moved to Rhyl in Wales and played drums in a punk band that were, according to him 'crap'. Early on in his stand-up career he was offered to perform in a talent show in America. He was the only Englishman on the bill and ended up winning. The first four years were spent touring working men's clubs, the next five on the alternative circuit. Like a lot of now-established comics, his break came in 1988 at the Edinburgh Festival.
He is married to Heather Evans (they married when he was only 17 in 1981), and they have a daughter, Mollie (born 1994). He currently resides near Billericay in Essex.

- Pics of Lee (13)
Lee Evans, one of Britain's best-loved stars of stage, screen and stand-up is once again poised to enter the record books with the UKs biggest ever live comedy gig.
With a total of 300,000 tickets available, 'Lee Evans - Big - UK Tour 2008' will be not only Evans largest tour to date but will make history by including the first comedy gig to grace the stage of the capitals London O2 Arena.
He said: Im really keen to get back out on tour again and go all around the country. You get such a buzz from the live audience, the reactions are just so immediate and totally spur you on theres nothing else quite like it.
Being the first comedian to play at the O2 Arena will be amazing, Im so excited to be able to perform there its a big space to fill but I love a challenge!
Evans broke the Guinness World Record for a solo act performing to the biggest comedy audience at the Manchester Evening News Arena in 2005 when he played to a crowd of 10,108. However, hes set to smash his own record by almost doubling that total in just two nights at the O2 Arena in London.
However, when tickets to 'Lee Evans - Big - UK Tour 2008' go on sale to the public on Friday 26th Oct at 10am, the 20,000 capacity London O2 Arena looks set to break that record and boost Evans even higher into the upper echelons of entertainment.
