A comedian who confronted a prime minister and the head of international football with high-profile pranks will take to the stage at the Ocean Room in Gorleston.

Simon Brodkin will be headlining a WCB Comedy night at the seafront venue on Friday, July 15. 

He is known for playing Lee Nelson, who famously handed prime minister Theresa May a P45 form during her keynote speech at the Conservative Party Conference.

He also showered FIFA president Sepp Blatter with hundreds of dollar bills for a fake North Korea 2026 World Cup bid.

Paul Dunn, from WCB Comedy, said: "The Ocean Room is a perfect setting to let loose with a pint and enjoy the UK's absolute best comedians."
