LEE NELSON brings his brand new live show to Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August for a special limited run. The show sees the irrepressible South London lad host a jam-packed night of unmissable entertainment, presenting his unique take on the world alongside his legendary audience interaction, with special guest appearances from alter egos including pitch-invading Premier League footballer Jason Bent and bigoted pastor Daniel Doolay. This follows the success of two critically acclaimed sell-out shows: Lee Nelson’s Well Good Tour and Lee Nelson Live. Extended three times, Lee Nelson Live saw him perform a massive 90 dates, including selling out London’s IndigO2.
Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show has been a ratings hit for BBC Three, with consolidated viewing figures reaching as high as 2 million and ranking at number two in the BBC iPlayer chart for most-watched shows across all BBC channels. This year saw LEE NELSON star in brand new TV series, Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People, a character comedy show for BBC Three, featuring a multitude of new characters including: Gary Sedgemore from ‘The Only Way is Macclesfield’ in his spin off reality show ‘OMG, LOL, FYI It’s Gary!!!’; psychotic Gangster Headmaster; Newcastle budget chef from Geordie Kitchen; aggressive Glaswegian Chugger; and radio DJ Kenny K; alongside many more.
What the press has said about Lee Nelson:
“It does obey the only rule of comedy that really matters. It’s funny.”
“Nelson gets the biggest laughs of all… has the audience in the palm of his hand.”
“Never lost for words, never less than ingenious. . . Brodkin knows how to come up with a seamlessly entertaining touring show”
