The stand-up comedian and serial prankster ‘Lee Nelson’, has done it again…this time gate-crashing living rooms delivering pizza, fun and laughter in a series of impromptu gigs! The performances were brought to Edinburgh homes by the UK’s number one pizza brand Domino’s, and were set up to raise funds and awareness for its new partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust.
Known for his cheeky and irreverent approach, Lee Nelson surprised and delighted Edinburgh locals staying in to avoid the chaos of tourists and revellers by delivering ‘A Pizza Fringe’ live to their homes. These private #LivingRoomLive performances were up for grabs to residents simply by showing their support to Teenage Cancer Trust and donating £3.
The series provided a sneak preview of Lee’s ‘Suited and Booted’ Fringe show with a private #LivingRoomLive set, and allowed local residents the chance to win private a stand-up set for themselves and friends accompanied by a Domino’s delivery of their choice.
One of the lucky winners was 20-year-old Euan Wilson from Corstorphine in the West of Edinburgh. He said: “I’m such a massive fan of Lee Nelson and all his crazy stunts that I can’t quite believe one happened in my own living room. My friends were completely gobsmacked when he knocked on our door. He’s hilarious and such a lovely guy.”
