LEE NELSON

Comedy |
16th May 2014

A brand new, well-good, qwalitee show! Clad from baseball cap to white trainer in designer logos and chunky bling, fag behind the ear and can of Stella in hand – Lee Nelson has an arsenal of new comedy characters at his disposal including preening Premiership striker Jason Bent.

For one night only, Lee Nelson brings his unique brand of character comedy, and legendary audience interaction, to the Brewery.

Nelson (the geezer-ish alter ego of Simon Brodkin) is one of the country's most exciting comedians. His most famous character, South London chav Lee Nelson has won over the hearts of the nation on BBC Three's 'Lee Nelson's Well Good Show' which aired to great ratings and has since been commissioned for a second series.

Simon has also made regular contributions to BBC Three's 'The Wall', and has appeared as a core cast member of ITV1 sketch show, 'Al Murray's Multiple Personality Disorder'.

His other credits include 'Funny Cuts – Simon Brodkin Sketch Show' (E4), 'Absolutely Fabulous' (BBC One), '4Radio Weekly' (Channel 4 Radio), 'Big Brother's Big Mouth' (Channel 4), 'Out To Lunch' (BBC Radio 2), 'The Morning After Show with Simon Amstell' (Channel 4) and 'Edinburgh and Beyond' (Paramount Comedy Channel).

Simon performed his first solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2006. Selling out his entire run, he went on to scoop the pretigious Writer's Guild Award for Best Newcomer. He took 'Simon Brodkin is Lee Nelson' to the 2008 Edinburgh festival, which was priased for its 'sharp, quick-fire verbal sparring' (The Scotsman) and 'solid gold material' (Chortle). It's no surprise that that Lee Nelson's banter is deceptively witty; creator Simon Brodkin qualified as a Doctor – and learnt his craft in observational humour – before turning his hand to comedy.

Now one of the biggest names at the Edinburgh Fringe, Simon has sold out 2 subsequent runs. Having finished touring 'Lee Nelson's Well Good Tour' to great acclaim, he is now working on the second series of 'Lee Nelson's Well Good Show'. And, if he wasn't busy enough, his all-new show 'Lee Nelson LIVE' heads out on tour this Spring, stopping at The Brewery on May 16.

“Scintillating and hilarious… killer line after killer line” The List

“Genius” The Independent

“A prodigious talent, Brodkin could well become a household name” The Times
