Simon Brodkin (2 stars)

This article is from 2008

Brodkin's incarnation Lee 'Nelsy' Nelson, is a chav who bounces upon us amid a billow of dry ice and a pumping soundtrack. His gags are laddish, relayed with puppyish enthusiasm. His charm can evidently win an audience around, but freewheeling with such enforced reciprocation, and material that is frequently predictable, can be as enjoyable as an hour with Jeremy Kyle.
