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. Read unabridged by the man himself, the audiobook edition of 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 reading 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.

    " This guy is the most talented yet modest 'celeb' out there. Parts of the book, describing his early life, are hilarious, but other parts are so very sad. All told wonderfully well. "

    " Lee Evans has to be one of the funniest men on this planet and so the main reason that I chose to read his autobiography. Hilarious and also sad in parts and just life in the rest. The eye and the stick incident, ouch. All in all, an interesting read. "

    " A really interesting insight into the life of one of my favourite comedians... it seems as though he had a tough upbringing but the book had lots of humour too. An enjoyable read. "

    " Gave me in insight into the funny man himself, and a little about his wife too and how he came to do what he does. Very iformative and gave me many giggles, but wasnt as funny as I expected. "
