Award winning stand up back with first DVD release in three years

Lee Evans, arguably Britain’s best loved stand up comedian, celebrates his biggest tour to date with an accompanying DVD release, Lee Evans – Big – Live at the O2, on Monday 24th November.

The long awaited DVD, Lee’s first in three years, marks the culmination of a colossal nationwide tour that has seen Lee play an incredible 59 arena dates across 13 cities, playing to 500,000 people. The DVD is recorded in front of a 16,000 capacity crowd at the O2 Arena as part of his 5 sell out nights at the venue. He also played a further 5 sell out nights at Wembley Arena, which brought his audience in London alone to over 130,000 people, a UK record. To celebrate this milestone, Lee also unveiled at plaque at Wembley Arena in the Square of Fame.

This new DVD is the perfect purchase for fans looking to relive Lee’s trademark gags, as well as comedy lovers seeking a serving of yuletide merriment. Lee Evans – Big – Live at the O2 is a second chance for those that missed the tour to capture all of the comic capers. With Lee’s trademark rants more fast and furious than ever before, Britain’s most energetic comic is at his very best.

Over two hours, Lee unleashes his uncanny observations on life’s little annoyances in his own unique and frantically physical way. As well as the DVD, a CD and audible DTO will also be released on 24th November. DVD extras include the making of the underwater scenes on the DVD and backstage footage featuring Lee in rehearsal.

Lee boasts an astonishing popularity, sealed when he picked up a Guinness World Record in 2005 for accumulating the largest ever comedy audience, an award he was presented with in Manchester at the MEN Arena.

Not only a critically acclaimed stand up artist, Lee was Olivier nominated for his performance on the West End in The Producers, and took on starring roles in movies including There’s Something About Mary, MouseHunt and The Martins.

    One of my friends saw Lee Evans and she thought he was so funny. Seems like he’s been around for ages and I loved him in MouseHunt.

  • Consultantwan says:

    When I was about 5 my parents took me to see Norman Wisdom. Lee really reminds me of Norman Wisdom.. uncanny similarities!

  • brenty1977 says:

    Was gutted not to get tickets for this, next time!

  • superkaty says:

    My mate met Lee Evans before his gig at Southend and he said that he’s a really nice guy and just as funny in real life! I love his facial expressions, he cracks me up! I’ve got a couple of his DVDs, would love to see him live at some point though.



  • mkwotsit says:

    I agree with Consultantwan about the Norman Wisdom likeness. I like the 02 venue. Just been to see Queen and Paul Rodgers! Fab!
    You can get your dinner there before you go in! YUM!

    Absolutely funny bloke, Lee Evans, a great example of intelligent visual physical comedy as opposed to smartarse lewd smutty comments from the likes of Ross and Brand pretending to be comedy.

  • mata777 says:

    We went to see Lee in Malvern Theatres. He made joke about a guy who went to the toilet. After that nobody dared to move!

  • 0o0destiny0o0 says:

  • missevans says:

    I liked that silent thing he was in years ago, when he plays the garage attendant trying to understand someone’s order, and when he finally lets them in to get it themselves they rob him!

  • annabelle84 says:

    If anybody hasn’t seen Lee Evans- Live in Edinburgh, get a copy. Watch the scene near the end where he serenades the audience playing the paino. Guaranteed to make you wet your knickers!

  • anybunny says:

    I’d love to win this for my husband as when he went to see Lee Evans at the O2 he overindulged in the hospitality and can’t remember a thing about the concert!! Don’t worry I made sure he suffered the following day!! and he is very sorry now!

  • mel556 says:

    My son saw him live and says hes the funniest man i’ll ever see. I’ve never heard of him, so would be nice to see

  • ClarkeEJ says:

    I saw Lee Evans for the first time doing stand up this year. Have always wanted to see him and my hubby was lucky to get some last minute tickets after someone had cancelled. He was probably the best stand up I have ever seen live. He had no support act and was on stage for hours and hours. He works so hard and enjoys every minute of being on stage. You certainly get your money’s worth at a Lee Evans comedy gig. Wonderful.

  • ribbles says:

    Lee evans is a legend. Absolutely loves his geeky ways!!

  • jackietalbot says:

    I’d love to win this, as my son went to the show but arrived late, and says what he saw of the show was brilliant. He had travelled 70 miles as well!!!!
