As it’s the season to be jolly, here at Tesco we often have author’s in for books signings. And a few weeks ago we were lucky enough to have Lee Evans over for a book signing in one of our Tesco Extra Stores. His book, The Life of Lee, is a funny but moving autobiography charting Lee’s ups and downs on his way to the top – from his childhood on a Bristol housing estate to performing in front of thousands at the O2 arena. At the signings, dozens of fans queued up for their chance to meet Lee and have their copies of The Life of Lee signed by him. One fan even went as far as asking Lee to sign his torso, apparently he’s going to turn it into a tattoo!
Alongside the book tour, we asked our Twitter followers to send us questions for Lee. We passed them on, and he answered as many as he could. Have a look to see if your question was answered below! We’d also like to say a huge thanks to Lee for taking the time to answer these questions, and to everyone who submitted a question on Twitter.
What has been Lee’s favourite show to date? - @mcflylover01
Wired and Wonderful – it was the first arena date, and first time I ever played Wembley.
Has Lee Evans done a signing in Manchester? If not is he coming? I’d love to meet him! - @alissaanicollee
I did a book signing in Manchester Trafford Centre – it was on the 26th November…
Considering lee says he started in a one man band, what instruments can he play? - @madnessrule2k9
Mandolin, Piano, Bass, Drums, Saxophone, Clarinet, Banjo, Ukelele, Guitar
Is Lee going to do any more films? - @feakins25
Yes – I’ve written two
Hi Lee! Here’s my question .. Out of all of the tours you’ve done, which has been your favourite? - @monkeysocks92
Wired and Wonderful – as above!
Once you finish your tour, how long is it before you start to plan your next tour? - @laurendown1
Most of the next tour is already written by the time I’ve finished the last one
When does Lee hope to tour again? - @iEddiez94
In a couple of years’ time – I tour every 3 years
My question is, have you ever worked out how much sweat has come from you over the years? - @pesky__peeves
No, I haven’t worked it out!
Does it annoy him that some people only him as being the sweaty comedian? - @lady_ashlea
Not really – it’s God’s cooling system.
What was the craziest thing a fan has done? - @jane4evarxx
Behave properly! Although a few fans flew out to New York to see me on a run there – that was amazing.
What does Lee do for relaxation. I cannot imagine him ever sitting still for very long - @dizzyclbb
Go to the Tesco self service aisle. That’s very relaxing.
Would you ever do another of your own tv series? Or even bring back ‘So What Now?’ - @ebiedarkins
No – I always go forward.
