Lee EvansLee Evans
Showbiz is in Lee Evans' blood. His dad Dave raised Lee and his brother whilst touring UK clubs and seaside towns.

After attending art school, Lee followed in his father's footsteps to the stand-up circuit. Four years at working men' clubs, and five on the alternative circuit later… Lee Evans became a huge hit at the 1988 Edinburgh Comedy Festival.

Since then Lee Evans' stand-up and live television appearances have had the nation in hysterics. Famous for his very physical brand of comedy, and tendency to play the underdog, he has often been compared to Norman Wisdom. Closer inspection of his act shows that it's just what he does best.

Evans is one of the rare UK comedians to have scored major hits at the cinema. Making his film debut in Funny Bones, he then found international fame with his role in gross-out There's Something About Mar and slap-stick Mouse Hunt.

He followed this up with a series, Lee Evans: So What Now?
