One of the funniest things about the show is simply the way that Evans laughs at his own jokes; what he's just said somehow becomes even funnier when you hear his comedic laugh following on. He does look to be grasping at straws occasionally, perhaps trying out new material as he suggests. And I always await his shows with baited breath. As Are All His Jokes. The show focuses on things that Evans hates, and features great sections on things like machines, airports, women, the postal service and many other annoying things are well observed, and often correct.
After watching the last 10 minuets of the show on tele i was intrigued to watch the whole thing after spilling a nice cup of tea down myself after the joke about the bath. The Facts And Figures Are Astounding And Some Will Blow Your Mind. Lee Evans was number 23 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups, and he was number 14 on Britain's Favourite Comedian. His 'Walking Holiday' bit was legendary especially when he does the part about the guy showing them around their room and then trying it on with his Wife. I thought I heard Lee Evans on Jonathan Ross that he was thinking of quitting comedy, but I was obviously wrong, he returned with this fantastic huge audience stage stand up show. I'll admit that I had not heard of Lee Evans until 5 years ago but when my friends said that they had seen his videos I had to see them for myself and made it a mission to see all of his filmed tours. Having said this there are still some hilarious moments that have stuck in my head.
Lee Evans: I take my hat off to you as without your tours I would not have experienced true stand up comedy. So For Gags Flying Every Minute And Unbeatable Stand Up Comedy. I have enjoyed him as a performer before, finding him a nice mix of imaginative routines and physical humour. Lee Evans is without a shadow of a doubt the funniest man I have ever seen in my life and I'm not just saying this because I am a fan but because it is true. My sides hurt i was in a hot sweat and i could hardly see through the tears as it was so funny.
At first I had a feeling that I may not be able to understand the British slang, partly because I studied American English, but I gotta say that my fear is unfounded. Compare him to comedians like Peter Kay, who uses the same jokes in every tour, Jim Davidson, who offends most people who see it still funny though and you will see how good Lee Evans really is. He is still funny and his energy is infectious but I just felt all these little niggles undermined the show as a whole and that I wasn't that impressed even if I a bit amused. This is still a very funny performance and worth a watch, but if you are a long time Lee Evans fan you may be slightly disappointed. I know this is the same with everyone everyone tours with the same gags but Evans' flow from one subject to another just made it very obviously rehearsed and preparing taking the feel of spontaneity out of it. This is the first time I have ever written anything like this but I felt I had to. Evans' comedy isn't particularly clever or witty, but he tells in such a way that it's hard not laugh, and once you get into his zone, the whole show becomes funny - and when you consider this is over two hours long; that's quite an achievement, Mr Evans.
I say greatest comedian ever because I am comparing him to the likes of Peter Kay, Jimmy Carr and numerous others and only been 19 I have not seen, or if I have, can't remember some of the comedy legends. I bought it the day it was released and put it on as soon as I got in as I had seen a clip of it on The Paul O'Grady Show and couldn't wait. Meanwhile his material is a rather forced series of observations on real life, most of which are exaggerated with his movements and do somewhat smack of desperation. Evans' look gives him a great comedy edge, as he looks like someone you could have a laugh with, and on the evidence of this show; that's certainly true. Some of the best moments are when he is using his body to do the talking, and he is sweating like mad.
And I gotta say that this show will certainly make any man laugh, or at least smirk at his jokes. With this show though I was a bit put off by him from the early stage as his material seemed disjointed from his physical routine; the latter mainly being exaggerated actions and lots of face pulling. People don't like the fact that he swears a lot but think about it, without the swearing it wouldn't be as funny. What surprised me once was how very structured his material was; the show I saw was from Cardiff but I reckon they could have edited between shows and I would not have noticed because it is so samey. Easily The One About Parcelforce, This Was Clever, Witty And Very Very Precise.
With Evans I longed for this feeling but it never came. Since then I have seen all of his tours, So what now and the world of Lee Evans and just cannot stop laughing even though I know every word. . I have been a fan of Lee since I saw Different Planet Tour about 8 years ago. Evans is a great comedian but this show isn't evidence of it and he's been better elsewhere. His material was surprisingly crude and I didn't think he needed it all. Once home i watched the full 2 and a bit hours.
I think that Lee Evans is really funny, and if you enjoyed his other, previous tours, I'm sure you'd enjoy this one just as much. I have to admit to not having seen much of Lee Evans prior to seeing this comedy show, but I know for sure that I'll be seeing a lot more of him now! I gotta admit that I'm an easily distracted person and to keep me fixated on the show is a feat in itself! Some people may find the show a little too frantic, or maybe even too similarly structured; but if you're looking for something to watch with you're friends while you have a few drinks - you could certainly do a lot worse than this! Lee puts on an energetic, lively performance, and delivers fantastic jokes, interesting stories, and is a classic stand up comic; and this tour just goes to prove how great he really is! He Is, To Me, The Greatest Comedian And Certainly The Sweatiest To Ever Appear On Stage. He Had The Crowd Almost Falling Out Of Their Seats In Hysterical Laughter. I was so desperate to find out where i could buy it. Buy This, You'll Laugh So Much, You'll Have To Pause The Show To Calm Down, Well At Least I Did Anyway.
He is still creating some fantastic, true to life and utterly hilarious jokes with both his mouth and his body. I do not know anybody that doesn't like Lee Evans and that's the kind of reputation you want as a comedian. Kudos to Lee Evans for his wonderful comedies. Lee Evans spoke in British slang but it is easy enough for me to understand. Certain sections had me in absolute stitches, but unfortunately these moments of utter hilarity were fewer and further between than they have been in Different Planet Tour and Live in Scotland. . .
