Britain’s Greatest Hoaxer
British comedian Simon Brodkin is perhaps best known for his comic creation Lee Nelson. However, recently he made headlines across the globe when he showered FIFA president Sepp Blatter with banknotes in protest at corruption within football’s governing body and also invaded the stage at the Glastonbury Festival during a set by Kanye West. Until now Simon’s methods (and targets) have remained unknown until after the event. This documentary follows the comedian as he plans how to prank three famous faces. Simon first attempts to prank TV talent show mogul Simon Cowell by posing as a rapping Rabbi auditioning for a spot on Britain’s Got Talent (2007), he then travels to Monaco where he attempts to rename Philip Green’s gigantic luxury yacht following the controversial collapse of the British Home Stores department store chain. Finally, in his most audacious and risky prank yet Simon plans to invade a press call with U.S. Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump at his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland with swastika-emblazoned golf balls.
