Lee Nelson is one of the character names for Simon Brodkin, a British comedian who performs on the stand-up circuit and in comedy television series.
Performing solo stand-up since 2004, he has also written for and appeared on the television shows Al Murray's Multiple Personality Disorder in 2009, and Lee Nelson's Well Good Show in 2010.
Lee Nelson's stand-up routine typically interacts with his audience, telling them about his life, asking them questions, then replying with witty and often mocking responses that reflect his world view, his own ignorance or his own stereotypically antisocial attitudes. His act is peppered with slang words.

In 2007, Lee wrote for and appeared on Al Murray's ITV1 prime time sketch show Al Murray's Multiple Personality Disorder, as well as alongside Murray in sketches about Mobile phone shop assistants.
