After handing Prime Minister Theresa May her P45 during the Conservative Party Conference before being frogmarched out and swiftly arrested, Simon Brodkin is embarking on the third leg of his hit stand-up tour ‘Serious Joker’ as the impish Lee Nelson bringing him to Cardiff’s Glee Club on May 3.
The renowned prankster’s antics have previously led him to make the acquaintance of some of the world’s most newsworthy and least likable human beings including surrounding President Donald Trump with Swastika emblazoned golf balls as part of the new Trump Golfing range, receiving 4 ‘yeses’ from Simon Cowell as an incognito rapping Rabbi, and re-christening Sir Philip Green’s hundred-million pound yacht as “BHS Destroyer”. Channel 4 secured exclusive and unrestricted access to Simon in 2016 as he lifted the lid on the months of meticulous planning and preparation that go into pulling off a successful stunt. Britain’s Greatest Hoaxer aired on the channel in February 2017.
Under the guise of Premier League footballer Jason Bent, Simon created one of the most iconic images of 2015 as he showered disgraced FIFA President Sepp Blatter in bank notes at the organisation’s headquarters in Zurich, live on TV in front of world’s press. Additionally Simon has rapped alongside Kanye West onstage during the idol‘s headline set at Glastonbury, gate-crashed a prime-time Saturday night broadcast of The X Factor (ITV), and joined the England football team ahead of their flight to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
On TV, Simon has enjoyed numerous hit shows as his most famed character, Lee Nelson, having written and starred in Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show and Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People on BBC Three.
