Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This British comedy anthology consisted of four short plays, each written by and starring Lee Evans in the zany tradition of Rowan Atkinson's Mr. Bean. The playlets placed Evans in a variety of universally recognizable situations, enabling him to gracefully (?) segue into visual and verbal slapstick. The first episode, telecast June 2, 1995, consisted of two 15-minute sketches: "The Late Shift" and "Meet the Folks." The remaining installments of The World of Lee Evans were made up of three half-hour plays: "Off the Rails," "One Late Night," and "Mr. Confidence."
