    He talks like crazy, it seems like somebody put Duracell batteries in him and he just keeps on going and going and ... He gets them switched out in the halftime, and then he gets on and on again, I think he said something funny every minute and he is just like a fountain on stage, especially with jokes, but it must be very hot walking back and forth doing various impressions, because this guy sweats like someone on holiday somewhere really warm :)

    He is a good performer and really has a good repertoire of funny voices, weird characters and strange incidents, he mixes it all up with stuff that seems to be made up a long the way, depending on how the audience reacts. It is very entertaining.
  • Lee Evans became one of the world's biggest comedians, and for good reason. Lee Evan's tours have been extremely successful because they are crazy, energetic, and most importantly, hilarious. The Roadrunner tour being another example of this, but Monsters feels tired.

    Monsters feels like Evans is running out of humour to deliver to his audience, there are some really funny moments, but they are few and far between, not as frequent as previous tours.

    Evans is as energetic as usual, and the formula of the comedy is unchanged, but there's less humour and more talk, less hysterics and more casual laughing, everything feels more topical at the expense of a lot of the humour.

    The Monsters tour is less impressive than most of Evan's previous tours, the Big, XL, and Roadrunner tours we're much funnier, and kept my interest for a lot longer, but because it still features classic Lee Evans, it's still worth trying out, but if you're expecting humour on the level of Big, XL or Roadrunner, Monsters will leave you disappointed.
  • While not as good as his other shows Lee still performs better material than most comedian's in there prime from his physical comedy and endless energy to just his unique laugh Lee Evans is a very funny man who has been making people laugh for such a long time you wonder how he hasn't ran out of material at this stage.
  • Warning: Spoilers
    It was on The Jonathan Ross Show that the highly successful and legendary sweating funny man announced his retirement from comedy, to spend more time with his wife Heather and daughter Mollie, so this was officially his final stand live stand up comedy show, and I hoped would be a good send-off. The show opens with a very catchy song and dance number, with Lee Evans walking down the backstage corridor with a number of dancers as he travels to the stage. Evans performs his hilarious routines of observational and physical comedy to another massive and sold out audience live at the NIA (National Indoor Arena) in Birmingham, with material that is true to life, satirising and satisfyingly funny. Topics include distinctive sounds, superstition, teenagers, hotels, sex, safety, shopping, garages (with an impressive impression of Michael Jackson, with moonwalking), driving, speed bumps, security at airports, trains, tannoys, service and viewing windows, aquariums, animal parts, fish and sea creatures, dogs, police cars, car alarms, warnings, the news and weather reports, the Kindle, technology, cooking, mobile phones, voice recognition technology, attention deficit disorder and dyslexia, photo taking, flashers, phone calls, passwords and security (wavy words), computer banking, spelling, drinking and drunk people ("pissheads"), going out, restaurants, fussy eaters, answering the door, takeaways, sponsor charities, getting old, reading particular writing, the dentist, medical emergencies, sport, sweating, looking weird, how sex sells, how you look, piercings and tattoos, washing clothes, modelling, women getting ready, stealing small things, being an idiot, household chores, forgetting things, gay marches, women's shoes, his wife, the book 50 Shades of Grey and much more. It ends as usual with a fantastic final song or two by Evans that he sings and plays himself, and this combined with all the rest adds up to a great watch, fantastically funny, and if it is truly the last show, then it's a good one. Lee Evans was number 23 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups, and he was number 14 on Britain's Favourite Comedian. Very good!
  • For many years i've been a huge fan of Lee Evans and his live stand up routines but this had me sorely disappointed. For one his humour feels forced and the "Jokes" are trodden, beaten down fantasies of what inanimate objects would say and do. Combine this with his over ecstatic facial expressions and movements to make up a sorry excuse for a joke. There is absolutely no variety in his routine at all. Most attempts are about animals, the earlier mentioned inanimate objects and how he cant understand technology, but he jumps from one bit to another and doesn't let us go along with the journey of a well told joke. I feel like he is a shadow of the man that gave us the XL tour back in 2005 which is still considered by me and many others as one of the best stand ups ever. I'm sorry to say but his impending stand up retirement is probably for the best but I will always remember the younger, funnier Lee Evans.
  • Mmmmmm Not real that good it is just not funny, cringe I see he was trying to hard
  • Despite having to wade through a lot of middling material to get to the gold, he's still clearly a funny man, with his characters, accents and trademark gurning. But, OMG, why oh, why does he have to sing?! Dreadful. Minus one star for that.
  • Hate to echo the negative, but the vulgarities, combined with the facial contortions and a certain insensitivity, made me quickly stop the video proceedings. If you like this sort of thing, OK, but I prefer a world that doesn't encourage it. On the other hand, Lee Evans is great in his Dr. Who & Big Fat Quiz spots and such...hilarious...just keep him away from himself! His stand-up persona, in general, is a love it or the opposite type of affair for the viewer. He should stay away from certain social issues that I was surprised to hear him trod upon. Apparently, this is what sells, so he "goes there". Having announced his imminent stand-up retirement, this comes as good news for those of us who prefer the kinder, gentler Lee Evans...Lee Evans the stand-up is dead, long live Lee Evans!
