TV comic Lee Nelson will bring his tour to Dudley later this year.
Over the last few years, the comedian's high-profile stunts have hit the headlines, including fooling Simon Cowell by faking his way onto a live audition for Britain’s Got Talent dressed as a Jewish orthodox rapper.
He has also thrown fake bank notes at former FIFA president Sepp Blatter and sabotaged the re-opening of Donald Trump’s golf course in Scotland as the US president was making a speech.
The comic, real name Simon Brodkin, has decided to extend his current tour show, titled Serious Joker, due to popular demand and has added a date at Dudley Town Hall on December 1.
Tickets cost £20 plus booking fee and will go on sale on Friday (April 7).
Alex Jackson, promoter and booker for the Dudley Borough Halls, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Lee Nelson has chosen Dudley Town Hall as one of the venues for his latest tour show, which is getting rave reviews all over the country.
“He is often in the headlines for sneaking into places he shouldn’t be. But now people in the borough can come and see him where he most definitely should be – live on stage and doing what he does best.
“Lee Nelson is one of a number of big names appearing as part of a very exciting programme of live comedy at Dudley borough halls this year, and we would urge people to snap up tickets quickly when they go on sale on Friday to avoid disappointment.”
A few tickets are still remaining for Jasper Carrott’s Stand Up & Rock double date at Dudley Town Hall on April 21and 22.
Limited tickets are also remaining for two shows at Stourbridge Town Hall – Doreen’s Grand Night Out on April 24 and 25 and Russell Kane’s Right Man, Wrong Age on April 30.
