Evans Breaks Comic Record

British funnyman LEE EVANS has broken the world record for performing to the largest comedy audience.

The comic actor entertained 10,108 people at the Manchester Evening News Arena in England on Saturday (19NOV05), smashing the previous record held by fellow Brit EDDIE IZZARD who performed to 8,700 in 1997.

Evans says, "When I started out 20 years ago I could never have imagined I would be selling out more nights at Wembley (Arena, London) than COLDPLAY."
