60 second stand-up: Lee Nelson

We spend 60 laugh filled seconds with cheeky comedian Lee Nelson. 

What’s the best part of your current set? 

I talk about how there are 10,432 letters in the Chinese alphabet—can you imagine how massive one tin of Alphabetti spaghetti is in Beijing?


Have you found any parts of the country to be funnier than others? 

People knock smaller towns, but I like them. I went to Wolverhampton, for example, and it really put my own problems into perspective.


Watch Lee in action (contains strong language):


What’s your most memorable heckle? 

I once took the mickey out of a Scot’s trainers when I was up in Edinburgh. He stood up and said, “You want some, pal?” Luckily my manager dragged him out before he bottled me.


What’s your favourite one-liner? 

My little boy’s favourite joke:

“Knock knock.”

“Who’s there?”


“Dwayne who?”

“Dwayne the bath, I’m drowning.”

Not exactly a one-liner but hey, he’s only six.


If you were a fly on a wall, whose wall would you be on? 

The Victoria’s Secret show changing rooms… obviously because it would be a fascinating insight into the world of fashion and stuff.


If you could have a super power, what would it be? 

I’d time travel. I go back and see what my answer was to this question, then tell you. Isn’t that a bit clever?
