“As comic inventions go south London council estate geezer Lee Nelson is up with the best.”
Simon Horsford, The Daily Telegraph
“On the strength of the opening edition, Nelson, a baseball cap-wearing ‘sarf London’ geezer with a little Harry Enfield and even a strand or two of Norman Wisdom in his DNA, is surely destined for a bigger stage. His strengths lie in the quality of the material and the excellence of the banter with the audience.”
Martin James, The Sunday Times
“Nelson proves to be a decent update on the sort of character that Harry Enfield used to do so well in the Nineties. Kevin Bishop could learn a thing or two.”
Joe Clay, The Times
