Review

'As hilarious, unsettling and forlorn as Evans himself' --The Sunday Times

'If comedy is the new rock 'n' roll, then behold the new Elvis Presley'
--The Sun

About the Author

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.

I LOVE Lee Evans, I always have and do even more so now,
Really touching,honest and kind, A real reflection behind the funny man the relationship between him and his wife is lovely & so very genuine.
Brought me to tears a couple of times and made me laugh too.
The only thing I would say is that I would've liked to have heard more about the early days, tours, when Molly was born etc.
Thanks Lee :o)

A funny read that is well written and not the normal type of biography you'd expect from someone like Lee. I feel like I know him a lot better now! I bought it for myself and think I'll be getting another copy for my brother for Christmas (unless I can get away with passing on my copy...).

What a lovely man! I thought that I knew a lot about Lee Evans but reading his story written in his own words is very different from watching him on TV. He is so geniune and so humble. I really enjoyed reading his book and getting to know the real person behind the cheeky smile.

I was lucky to have caught Lee Evans in his heyday on the club circuit at the Railway pub in Hampton Wick just after he started out. I was dumbfounded and thought him an idiot at first. And that's exactly what he is. A lovely great clod. Two minutes into his act and I was hooked and have been ever since. He is the only comic of his time that can make me choke with laughter. This book does that as much as it makes one choke with tears, of both joy and with sadness. Nobody can be that stupid in real life, except for Lee Evans. This book will put fans like me through the emotional wringer. Thank god for him. Cheers for that Mouse Boy!

If you're a big fan of Lee Evans obviously you'll love this book, but even if you're not there's no way you could fail to be engrossed in this moving, captivating and hilarious account of how he came to be the performer he is today. Every bit as funny on the page as he is on the stage! (oops, rhyme!)

What a unique story from a truly self-made man. This book had me laughing and crying in equal measures! With so many unforgettable characters from Lee's childhood, along with his unusual upbringing following his dad around the 1970s entertainment circuit, it's easy to see how Lee has found plenty of material for his comedy. Fans of Lee Evans will love this but it's also a brilliant memoir for anyone who loves a bitter sweet true life story. FIVE STARS.
