Controversial comedian Simon Brodkin, better known by his alter ego Lee Nelson, will be performing at the Duchess Theatre in London on the 14th March as part of the 30 extra dates added on to his ‘Suited and Booted’ tour.
As the name of the tour suggests, Nelson will be getting rid of his trademark baseball cap and ‘chav’ attire and will instead be donning something more presentable.
The tour takes him from Newcastle-upon-Tyne down to Exeter, but unfortunately includes no dates in Southampton, with the nearest place to see him being in London.
Simon Brodkin is best known for his two BBC3 TV shows Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show, which ran for two seasons between 2010-2011, and Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People, which ran for one season in 2013. Both shows were based around the comedy characters upon which he built his career, most notably the chavvy and anti-social host Lee Nelson, and unpleasant footballer Jason Bent.
A qualified doctor, Brodkin began his TV career in 2003 but didn’t perform his first solo comedy show until the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where his Everyone but Himself set won him The Writers’ Guild Award for Best Newcomer. Since then he has had several stand-up tours as Lee Nelson, including an appearance on Live at the Apollo in 2011.
