Reliably informed

Just because you may not be familiar with Simon Brodkin’s name does not mean you don’t know his work. Having sold out huge venues under his infamous alias, Lee Nelson, Brodkin’s writing spoke to a new generation and cultivated an avid fanbase that latched on to the character’s spin on politics and current affairs.

This acute awareness of the surrounding world and a keen grasp on the millennial mindset has led Brodkin to a wildly successful career on TikTok, again touching on modern, relevant stories with a sharp penchant for seeing the insanity in everything happening right now.

His latest tour Screwed Up is a reflection on the last few years and accepting that we have all, collectively screwed up. Following on from his sold-out Edinburgh Fringe run, the heated comic is unafraid to speak his mind – with the tour tearing into the craziness of the police, Prince Andrew, Putin, celebrity culture, social media and Jesus Christ – nobody is safe…. And that includes himself, as the show also sees him talk about his family, his career and his role in all this madness.

Simon Brodkin makes his way to The Witham, Barnard Castle on Saturday 29th April.
