Always Be Comedy (5 shows): The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2018
I saw character comedian Simon Brodkin appear at Always Be Comedy in February, March, two shows in May and again in November 2018. One of Brodkin’s characters Lee Nelson has been very popular with audiences over the years but as a work-in-progress at these gigs he appeared on-stage as himself. Every time, Brodkin was naturally engaging voicing his comic opinions with gusto and as a result I thought he was funnier than his characters he portrays. In November 2018, he was very funny, quick and smart on stage and it has been fascinating watching him perfect his routine over the year.
