Lee Evans is a popular British comedian, writer and musician. The actor managed to turn his own awkward appearance into a real brand and become a kind of symbol of modern stand-up shows.
The beginning of the biography
The future comedian was born in 1964 in Bristol, the English province. When the boy grew up a little, the family moved to Essex. Lee's father was an actor, albeit not very famous. He did not participate in filming and theatrical performances, limiting himself to nightclubs, fairs, local teams of shows.
Since childhood, the boy spent all his free time behind the scenes. In Essex, he entered art school, and then determined to become an actor and work with his father. Lee also liked the music, as a teenager he was a good drummer and member of a local rock group.
The first stage experience was taught to the young man by his father, but after a few performances the debutant was able to work independently. Lee discovered a real talent: he reacted quickly, came up with interesting jokes, and stood freely in front of the public. People loved Evans' humor: light, ambiguous, absolutely devoid of vulgarity. In addition, the actor knew how to keep the audience, the audience did not get bored at his performances. The energy and enthusiasm of the young actor literally hypnotized the audience, and Evans himself drew inspiration and enthusiasm from the audience's reaction.
After composing the program and running it in front of the benevolent audience of his hometown, Lee Evans began to tour. He traveled all over the UK and enjoyed success everywhere. The actor was noticed and invited to the cinema, at first for small roles.
His cinematic debut took place in 1995. Evans played in 2 comedies at once: "Jokes aside" and "Moonlight". After 2 years, real luck awaited him: an invitation to shoot The Fifth Element. The role was small, Lee played one of the members of the crew of the liner "Fog". However, participation in a large-scale project, which received many prestigious prizes, opened the way for the British comedian to Hollywood. Among the works of Evans, remembered by the audience, are the comedy "Mouse Hunt", "Everyone is crazy about Mary."
Despite his film success, Lee decides to leave Hollywood and returns to Britain. Here he resumes stand-up shows, combining old and new programs and regularly gathering full houses. The comedian sees his future on the stage, but does not exclude that in the future he will appear on the movie screen.
In family life, Lee Evans is quite successful. The comedian married early, he was barely 20 years old. The chosen one was named Heather Nadds, she was the same age as her husband. The couple lived happily, the only thing that overshadowed a successful marriage was the absence of children. However, in 1993, a miracle happened - Heather gave birth to a daughter, who was named Molly Joan. The family is very friendly, the spouses are not involved in any scandals and are not going to part. As Evans himself says, he has enough shocks and surprises on stage.
