Live at the Apollo

Lee Nelson, Stewart Francis and Paul Chowdhry

Series 8 - Episode 4 Lee Nelson, Stewart Francis and Paul Chowdhry



South London chancer Lee Nelson (the well wickid innit bruv creation of comic Simon Brodkin) takes no prisoners with his opening routine. The death of his grandad, dogging, his crush on the Little Mermaid – nothing is off-limits, and Lee is such a cheery, shouty, in-your-face caricature, he can get away with anything, more or less.

Tough act to follow? Not for Canadian one-liner merchant Stewart Francis, who won the prize for funniest joke at this year’s Edinburgh fringe: “You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks.”


Cheeky Londoner Lee Nelson plays host for a `well good' session of stand-up from the Hammersmith Apollo in London, warming up the audience before introducing routines by Canadian funnyman Stewart Francis and observational comic Paul Chowdhry.
