Television comic Lee Nelson brings his new tour to Middleton Arena later this year.
The comic, real name Simon Brodkin, has extended his stand-up tour due to huge demand, and will be on stage in Middleton for the very first time on Friday 13 October 2017.
Over the last few years, the comedian's high-profile stunts have hit the headlines, including fooling Simon Cowell by faking his way onto a live audition for Britain's Got Talent dressed as a Jewish orthodox rapper. He has also thrown fake bank notes at former FIFA president Sepp Blatter and sabotaged the re-opening of Donald Trump's golf course in Scotland as the US president was making a speech!
'come and see him where he most definitely should be – live on stage'
Simon's alter ego Lee Nelson burst onto the scene clad from baseball cap to white trainer in sportswear logos and cheap-and-chunky bling, fag behind the ear and can of Stella in hand. Now suited and booted, a more thoughtful Lee has begun to engage with life outside his estate and is grappling with bigger issues! On television he's had two series of 'Lee Nelson's Well Good Show' (BBC3), and has also appeared on Comedy Rocks (ITV) and Lets Dance for Sport Relief (BBC1).
Graham Duckworth, Entertainments Manager at Middleton Arena said:
"It's great news that Lee Nelson has chosen Middleton as one of the venues for his latest show, which is getting superb reviews all over the country. He is often in the headlines for sneaking into places he shouldn't be. But now people can come and see him where he most definitely should be – live on stage."
