“Hilarious” ★★★★ The Scotsman

“There aren’t many better comedians to turn to”  ★★★★ The Telegraph

“Get him out” Donald Trump

Critically acclaimed comedian, world-famous prankster and professional troublemaker Simon Brodkin is set to embark on a live tour across the UK with his brand-new stand-up show Troublemaker from 11th September to 11th December 2021. Tickets can be found at

Having showered FIFA President Sepp Blatter with banknotes, upstaged Kanye West on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury, and handed Theresa May her P45 during her Conservative Party Conference speech, the celebrated comedian comes to terms with the fact that trouble has followed him throughout his life – from primary school through medical school to lockdown homeschool. “The world’s greatest blagger” (The Telegraph) also explores what it’s like to be chased by Donald Trump’s bodyguards, make the police laugh while they arrest you, and be outed as a Jew by the Ku Klux Klan.


Simon’s audacious stunts were documented in Channel 4’s Britain’s Greatest Hoaxer, which was nominated for Best Documentary at the Monte Carlo TV Festival Golden Nymph Awards 2018, and have been watched on YouTube by over 15 million people.


Simon performed out of character as himself for the first time in 2019, with the stand-up show 100% Simon Brodkin, which was selected by The Guardian and The Evening Standard as one of the ‘Best Comedy Shows at the Edinburgh Fringe’.


Simon previously created the irrepressible character Lee Nelson, enjoying three hugely successful BBC series with Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show and Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People. Simon has performed and hosted as Lee on Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Sunday Night at the Palladium (ITV), The John Bishop Christmas Show (BBC One), Children In Need (BBC One) and Channel 4’s Comedy Gala.



“Simon Brodkin has finally and gloriously cast off the shackles of Lee Nelson with a sublime piece of daft comedy” ★★★★ Murray Robertson, The List

“100% Simon Brodkin is a welcome evolution” ★★★★ Jay Richardson, The Scotsman

“As a traditional, timeless stand-up show, this hits plenty of bullseyes” ★★★★ Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke

“Brodkin is talented, smart and sharp”
Sharon Lougher, Metro

“His show proves that Brodkin has no need for the trappings of character to deliver a thoroughly entertaining show”Steve Bennett, Chortle

“Funny, smart and unexpected… this show proves that Simon Brodkin no longer needs to hide behind characters and stunts to be funny”
★★★★ Elliot Gonzales, I Talk Telly

One of The Guardian’s ‘Top Shows At The Fringe’
