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. "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 book 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.

As a huge Lee Evans fan I HAD to get this book! It was so good I managed to read the whole thing in a few days, it's open, witty and honest and makes his on stage antics all become clear after reading this, can't wait to see if he releases another book after this!

This book follows Lee through his first 18 years with time on the council estate he lived on, travelling the country with his performer father, his school years and meeting the love of his life.

Sometimes heartwarming and sometime heartbreaking this is a brilliant story of someone who thought they were nothing but became a big something.

 Loved every page.

The life of Lee is an amazing book. I literally could and would not put this down. He writes so honestly, and emotively. As a fan of Lee already I knew about his rise to fame, but little of his youth. If you are a fan, this is a must read, but only covers his young years, to his first taste of fame at 18. Still contains hilarious and also very sad moments of his life. Loved it.
