The prankster who handed Prime Minister Theresa May a fake P45 during her party conference speech is due to appear in Potters Bar next week.

Comedian Simon Brodkin brings his chav alter-ego Lee Nelson to the Wyllyotts Theatre on Saturday, October 14 as part of his Serious Joker tour.

Having previously chucked fake cash at former FIFA boss Sepp Blatter in Zurich, gatecrashed Stereo Kicks’ performance on The X Factor and stormed the stage during Kanye West’s Glastonbury headline set, Simon Brodkin made national headlines again on Wednesday with his latest stunt.

Posing as a Conservative member, Brodkin sauntered up to the stage during the Prime Minister’s keynote speech at the Tory party conference in Manchester.

He then handed Theresa May a fake P45 as she addressed the audience.

Simon Brodkin later tweeted that the piece of paper was from Boris Johnson.

He tweeted: “Hi @BorisJohnson, I gave Theresa her P45 just like you asked.”

Tickets for Lee Nelson’s Potters Bar show cost £20.

There’s still a few tickets left.
