Description

Lee Evans is one of the best-loved comedians in the country; a Hollywood star able to sell out arenas in the blink of eye.

But he was not always such a roaring success.
The Life of Lee is an utterly hilarious and very moving autobiography charting his ups and downs on the way to the top. Lee takes us on a darkly humorous journey through his childhood spent running wild on a Bristol housing estate and his unconventional school days, when he was publicly derided as 'a failure' by a sadistic teacher.

In this brilliantly entertaining and engaging tale, he also guides us through a grim teenage period of numerous dead-end jobs. When he was cleaning toilets and plucking turkeys, he could never have imagined that one day he would be playing to thousands of adoring fans at the O2 Arena.

The book also reveals how as a boy Lee got his first taste of showbiz, living out of a suitcase and accompanying his entertainer father around the smoky, rowdy, unforgiving working-men's club and theatre circuit.

Desperately struggling to be accepted, this quiet young loner always saw himself as an outsider. But he finally met the love of his life and accidentally discovered the one place where he felt at home: the stage.

The Life of Lee is a story that is like its subject: compelling, touching, charming and, above all, fantastically funny.

    Lee Evans has been my favourite comedian since the early 90s and this book was an amazing read. Just to see how hard he has worked to get to where he is with all the ups and downs. His stardom is fully deserved in my opinion
  • Too Descriptive

    Brilliant man, brilliant story, a legend! But describes everything too much then goin off subject, suppose it helps with imagination. I'm not a big book reader so who am I to say!

    The story is quite good and interesting most of the time, but its title is lee's life. Which seems to come to an end as soon as he won £250 I a talent contest. I was hoping for much more, a real tags to riches type if story, instead it stopped in the mid eighties. Maybe he his saving this for another day

    Really good book, telling all the major points of his life from the age of about 5 up to when he was 18 and why he is the way he is today. Great pictures throughout. Just would of loved to read through his more uplifting and famous years and about his life now. From a big fan from a young age.

    What an uplifting story, both sad & funny, a great story told with immense feeling for his family. Lee not only tells the tale of his upbringing, his problems & school disasters, he just shows that things can change even when they seem so low when their is someone who rely cares about you. Fantastic read !!!
