Our celebrity host



 Simon Brodkin, acclaimed character comedian and “the world’s most famous blagger” (The Daily Telegraph), Simon is now performing as himself and is fresh off a sold-out,  critically acclaimed 120-date international tour with his  latest show, Screwed Up. The show had performed to sold-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2022 and Dominic Maxwell (The Times) said “no show has made (him) laugh more than this one…”.


Simon’s many television appearances include Live at the Apollo and Sunday Night at the Palladium, as well as his own documentary Britain’s Greatest Hoaxer on Channel 4. Simon hit global headlines multiple times for his high-profile stunts, including handing Theresa May a P45 during her speech at the Conservative Party Conference, showering disgraced FIFA president Sepp Blatter with bank notes, crashing Donald Trump’s golf course opening, and going on Britain’s Got Talent as the ultra-orthodox Jewish rapper Steven Goldblatt – fooling Simon Cowell and the other judges to win four ‘yeses’. Britain’s Greatest Hoaxer was nominated for best Documentary at the Monte Carlo TV Festival Golden Nymph Awards 2018.



Recently, Simon broke records on TikTok with one of his videos reaching over 40 million views, making it the most viewed video by any British comedian ever.’
