Evans To Ditch Hollywood Career

British comedian LEE EVANS is set to turn his back on his Hollywood career to concentrate on his stand-up comedy routine. The Something About Mary star has vowed to stay in his native Britain with wife and 13-year-old daughter Molly because Tinseltown 'drives him mad'. He says, "I live here, my daughter goes to school her, I can't go back to Hollywood - it absolutely drives me mad." And the star has also claimed a world record with his return to live shows, selling out 15,000 seats for a gig at London's o2 Arena in less than an hour. He says, "I'd always wanted to be in the Guinness Book Of Records. I thought I was going to do it by eating jam pies, or being the bloke with the most spoons in his ear or something. "It's amazing and I'm so pleased by how well it's all gone so far. The o2 is the biggest venue I've ever played, so it's pretty daunting. I'm scared s**tless actually but I can't wait to get back out on tour again."
