Lee Evans 'Monsters' Tour 2014
Last updated: 22nd May 2013
Lee Evans is back with his brand new stand-up comedy show, Monsters.
Face value £30 tickets (excl. booking fee) for Lee Evans are still available from Ticketmaster (UK) for most dates.
For over 50 nights, Lee Evans will bring his award winning humour to the stage for his highly anticipated 2014 tour, with Lee Evans tickets for his previous tours Wired and Wonderful and Roadrunner, proving highly popular.
Lee Evans begins his Monsters journey on the 20th August 2014 at the Bournemouth International Centre for five nights, before he travels to Brighton, Nottingham, Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Leeds, Newcastle, Dublin, Belfast and Cardiff.
Born in Bristol in 1964, Lee Evans had a somewhat short lived music career playing in several bands as a teenager, most notably The Forgotten Five. Before he became well known for his stand-up comedy, for a brief spell, he tried his hand at boxing, before finding his calling.
The 1990s were the decade where Lee Evans established himself at the pinnacle of live comedy. Although he is keen to deny it, his brand of humour has been compared to the late Norman Wisdom.
Lee Evans toured the lengths and breadth of the country to learn his craft. He originally had a residency at the infamous Comedy Store in London, before he had his big break at the 1993 Edinburgh Festival and went on to win the highly coveted Perrier Award. He then achieved a personal ambition to perform and sell-out The London Palladium for two nights.
In 1996 he progressed even further with his next big accomplishment, by breaking his next record, an eight week run at the Lyric Theatre and broke box-office records for a solo comedian at the time. Lee Evans took his debut tour ‘Same World, Different Planet tour on the road and ended it with a two week run at the Apollo Theatre in London, where he recorded his third DVD, Lee Evans Live-Different Planet Tour.
Two years later, Lee Evans continued on the road to success and added a 10 week, sell-out run at the Apollo Theatre and also recorded the video ‘Live In Scotland’ which was live at the Playhouse Theatre in Edinburgh.
As well as doing stand-up, Lee Evans has appeared in a variety of films and plays. In March 2004 he appeared in Samuel Beckett’s play, Endgame and received critical acclaim for his part. The following year he appeared in the Mel Brooks musical The Producers at The Theatre Royal on Drury Lane and Lee Evans was nominated for a prestigious Olivier Award. In 2007 he appeared in the West End play, The Dumb waiter and he received the London Theatregoers’ Choice Award for his performance of his character ‘Gus’.
Evans is sometimes known as the “sweaty man of comedy” as he is renowned for perspiring heavily during live performances. During his 2008 UK Tour “Big”, Lee Evans parodied this somewhat unfortunate title, showing in the opening video him flooding his dressing room. This tour played to over 500,000 fans all over the UK and Ireland. The DVD of the live tour sold over 1 million copies. He is known for his legendary music skits as the curtain closes on each of his live shows. In 2005 he smashed the world record for a live comedy audience, attracting a crowd of over 10,000 for the Lee Evans Manchester MEN Arena show.
Evans is also known as an actor and sitcom writer. He holds an honorary doctorate from the Anglia Ruskin University and recently completed the 2010 London Marathon.
Lee Evans has established himself as one of Britain's best-loved and most successful stand-up comedy stars. "Stand-up" comedy might not be the best description for a Lee Evans show, since Lee Evans comedy shows involve his trademark irrepressible physicality.
