Interview: Simon Brodkin on his new stand up tour

The man being Lee Nelson, Jason Bent and more talks about his 100% Simon Brodkin show.

For the very first time, comedian Simon Brodkin is taking himself on the road for his 100% Simon Brodkin stand up tour.

Famed for the characters of Lee Nelson and Jason Bent, as well as high profile stunts on the likes of Donald Trump and Theresa May, Simon Brodkin is now drawing from his own experience to deliver a stand up comedy show discussing his life as a dad, a doctor, and to delve into the aftermath of some of his most notorious antics.

Clear to distinguish the show from his previous character led tours, and far from “an evening with Simon Brodkin”, the shows will see him deliver his quick-witted, personal comedy to the masses following a sold out Edinburgh Festival Fringe run.

Ahead of his standalone London show at Leicester Square Theatre on Friday 15 November 2019, and the run of dates taking 100% Simon Brodkin across the UK during the first half of 2020, the comedian opens up about what fans can expect from the show, and on no longer presenting his characters. Watch the interview above.
