Simon Brodkin was on form at the Kings with his alter egos, the high-energy chav Lee Nelson, Premiership footballer Jason Bent and African preacher Daniel Doolay.

Starting off as Nelson, he quickly got the laughs going with audience banter.

He then had a quick change to become Bent, using footage on a big screen to good effect from when he sneaked in on a warm-up session with Manchester City a few months ago.

The third and final character was Doolay. Having not seen that one before, it looked a bit risky to start with to me. But he pulled it off well with a good accent and a topical sketch.

He returned as Lee Nelson, getting couples on stage for ‘The Happy Couple Game Show’.

The last bit of audience participation was getting a photo of everyone for his Twitter and Facebook page, which is one way to get a standing ovation.

After the gig, Brodkin spent time posing for pictures and signing autographs. Legend.
