Brodkin

About

Acclaimed character comedian Simon Brodkin is the writer and star of BBC Three’s ratings success Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show. This year saw Lee Nelson star in brand new series Lee Nelson's Well Funny People on BBC Three, which also introduced popular characters such as pitch invading Premier League footballer Jason Bent and negligent GP Dr Bob.

Lee Nelson is currently touring the country with his third stand up tour which sees the irrepressible South London lad host a jam-packed night of unmissable entertainment with legendary audience interaction and appearances from his alter egos.

This year, Lee Nelson made a highly anticipated return to BBC One’s Let's Dance for Comic Relief reaching the final with an impressive performance of Swan Lake. He is the only person to perform on the show twice after his first attempt in 2011 and he also sat on the judging panel in 2012.

Last year, Lee Nelson hosted and appeared on Live at the Apollo (BBC One) as well as releasing his first Live DVD and touring the country. Simon also wrote a weekly column in the News of The World as Lee Nelson.

Simon’s additional television and radio credits include appearances on Channel 4’s Comedy Gala; Absolutely Fabulous (BBC One); Children In Need (BBC One); Al Murray’s Multiple Personality (ITV1); Comedy Rocks (ITV1); Big Brother’s Big Mouth (Channel 4); The Wall (BBC Three); Edinburgh and Beyond (Comedy Central); and BBC Radio 2’s Out To Lunch.

Simon has taken five hit solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he won the Writer’s Guild Award for Best Newcomer in 2006. His 2008 show was praised for Simon’s ‘sharp, quick-fire verbal sparring’ (The Scotsman) as well as his ‘solid gold material’ (Chortle). In 2010 he took Lee Nelson’s Well Good Edinbra Show to the Fringe, selling every single ticket and receiving rave reviews, with a follow-on nationwide tour of Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show.

In 2011, BBC Three aired Lee Nelson's Well Good Show - Series 2 and Simon completed his second Lee Nelson Live tour.

“The hottest creation since Ali G and Vicky Pollard.”
The Daily Mirror

“As comic inventions go, Simon Brodkin’s south London council estate geezer Lee Nelson is up with the best.”
Simon Horsford, The Daily Telegraph

“Nelson, a baseball cap-wearing ‘sarf London’ geezer with a little Harry Enfield and even a strand or two of Norman Wisdom in his DNA, is surely destined for a bigger stage.”
Martin James, The Sunday Times
