In November 2005, Lee Evans smashed the world record for playing to the largest ever comedy audience - 10,108 people at the Manchester Evening News Arena. The record underlined his status as the most popular comedian in the UK. A former boxer, Lee went on to break more records. In 2008, he sold more than 500,000 tickets on fifty-nine arena dates. He has now sold in excess of 4 million DVDs. Born in Bristol in 1964, the award-winning comedian also headlined in such films as There's Something About Mary, MouseHunt, The Fifth Element, The Martins and Funny Bones. He has also performed in the West End in The Producers, Endgame and The Dumb Waiter, receiving numerous theatre awards along the way. Lee has been happily married to Heather for twenty-seven years. They live in Essex and have a daughter called Mollie.

If I was to describe the author of this book, having never seen his stand up performances, which I haven't, I would say he is the eternal "poor me..... I was such a klutz and such a victim, but look at me now! I think it was an entertaining book no doubt but he just had to keep banging on about what a fool and useless person he always was and magically this Cinderfella turned into the prince. It became irritating. But, I liked some of the yarns he told about his life. Worth a read but not a rush out and buy it book. I'd like to see him on stage live and see if he does the poor old me stuff. Bet he's funny.

This was such an entertaining read - quirky, funny and packed full of childhood stories that resonated with my own. The only criticism for me is the book stops short of what you REALLY want to know about - his journey from comic through to Hollywood, the stage and where he is now. However am guessing there's a book 2 to follow up for end of 2012....which that had been made clear if so. Great pics too inside and on artwork - great photographer!

This is a great story of a loser who finally won it all. Evans philosophy of "never back down, never run from a fight" is what kept him going, although many, including Evans, consider him overly optimistic. In the end, his optimism - and ability to play to his strengths , loser as he may be - is what saves him.
