3 Lee Nelson: Serious Joker

Lee Nelson is the cheeky-chav alter-ego of Simon Brodkin, whose attempts to become acquainted with some of the world's most newsworthy - but least likeable - characters have landed him repeatedly in hot water. The laddish comedy is more than redeemed by the conviction with which Brodkin inhabits the character, and his dexterous audience control.
