Comedian Lee Nelson entertains passengers at Bolton train station
CHEEKY comic Lee Nelson pulled out all the stops by entertaining passengers at Bolton Station with mock announcements.
The funnyman, whose real name is Simon Brodkin, was the conductor of comedy at the station when he was put in charge of train announcements along the journey from Manchester to Edinburgh.
Providing the first on-board comedy show, self-styled wide-boy Lee performed several one-liner announcements at each station stop, entertaining passengers on their way to the Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Festival, including: “Sorry ladies and gentlemen, but we will be 35 minutes late due to having a female driver.”
The comic is best known for Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show on BBC Three, where Brodkin plays his chavvy but lovable character throughout the show to a studio audience.
Passengers were quick to react to his appearance on the train, posting updates on Twitter.
One passenger wrote: “Well good entertainment! Lee Nelson is most definitely a legend!”
After the journey, Lee performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Festival.
Victoria Tomlinson, marketing manger at First TransPennine Express said: “With Lee heading up to Scotland for his performance at the annual Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Festival, he was the perfect ambassador for us.”
