Simon Brodkin: Let Me Introduce Myself (Special Guest: Travis Jay)
Tuesday 25 June 2019
[Work in Progress]
NEW DATE CONFIRMED: FIRST DATE RESCHEDULED FROM MONDAY 20 MAY TO MONDAY 27 MAY
You may know him as “comedy legend” Lee Nelson or as the “unfunny pillock” who gave Theresa May a P45, but you won’t know him as “tiny Jew” Simon Brodkin. After three hugely successful series of Lee Nelson on the BBC, multiple TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, Sunday Night at The Palladium, C4’s Comedy Gala), and several world-famous stunts on the likes of Donald Trump, Kanye West & Sepp Blatter, Simon unveils his funniest persona yet: himself. In this highly-anticipated ‘debut’ show, the award-winning, critically-acclaimed comedian takes us from his childhood growing up on the mean streets of Hampstead Village, to his adulthood as a failed doctor, inept parent and fairly rubbish Jew.
