Here it is, our highly awaited review of Lee Evans – it is not the first time that Lee Evans and his performance has actually ended with a song, this time a ballad rather than a stereo typically Lee Evans’ styled tune. Lee Evans is a great personality to have anywhere in the world, he performs observational comedy that essentially sacrifices his personal life in order to ensure that others are constantly giggling at his jokes. It’s not quite autobiographical, but it offers people watching the show a much greater insight into Lee’s life so far. Lee Evans has an uncanny ability to keep people interested in his show for extremely long duration and always having a laugh at his sometimes outlandish and out there jokes. Lee has also got the knack for being extremely expressive and really ousting reactions from the crowd watching him, he is constantly straining and ultimately when he is on the stage he is no longer himself.
He transforms into a master of the stage and the crowd is always with him, following his relentless jokes from start to finish. He is a true master of massive scale comedy sketches, he quickly outgrew performing to small rooms as a child and from the age of 15 he was already well on his way to stardom. Now that he has become such a house hold name in recent years, it really is difficult to even begin to imagine him playing in front of a small room of people – it just wouldn’t happen really, would it now? One way that I could describe Lee is that he is like a cartoon, his jokes are subtly amusing but at times out right hilarious too – he is completely flexible with his voice, enabling him to effortlessly change from scene to scene in a eloquent and fluid manner – something that many of today’s comedians are still struggling with on a massive level.
Lee manages to transition from one subject to another without becoming stuck on any particular topic, like no other. At no point will you ever find yourself becoming tired or in any way bored with his sketches, they have all been beautifully constructed to appeal to a mass audience and so there is absolutely always something for everybody watching. This is something that really struck a chord with me and has kept me totally in awe of his performances for many years now. I can’t say that about too many other comedians because it simply isn’t true, despite the fact that they are also undoubtedly really funny at times.
If you would love to see Lee in 2016, you may have some difficulties because he only appears on a rare occasion now – but if you hold your nerve for long enough and wait to pounce on a potential pair of tickets then you may be in luck, because it’s extremely likely that he will be out on show again soon – and well away from retirement. Keep your eyes firmly peeled everybody!
