Lee Evans to perform gig in Cumbria
Last updated at 13:42, Thursday, 06 March 2014
One of the world's most popular comedians is heading to Whitehaven's Rosehill Theatre - but tickets have already sold out.
Comedy superstar Lee Evans will take to the stage on Friday, April 25 (8pm).
Famous for his high-energy performances and record-breaking tours, Evans is one of the world’s most successful stand-ups. He has also made his mark in Hollywood, starring in hit films including The Fifth Element, There’s Something About Mary and Night at the Museum.
Debbie Graham, Rosehill’s marketing manager, said: “Everyone is ecstatic to have Lee Evans perform at Rosehill. We simply can’t wait to share the news with our audience.”
Evans’ Rosehill show, Work In Progress, will see him perform and hone his new material – referring to and making notes as he goes – ahead of his nationwide Monsters tour which begins in August and includes six nights at the O2 in London.
The ticket office opened at 10am today but tickets were reported to have sold out almost immediately.

Have your say
why pick the smallest theatre for this show you could have filled it ten times over!!!!
The public sector at it's best! Public servants my derrier. I feel sorry for the good folk of Whitehaven who have clearly been stitched up. Unfortunately, I note the real story is only being discussed in this thread - and not in the main body of the article. Why not N and S? Outrage as tickets for top comic sold to families of theatre staff before going on offer to general public.
