Nigel Farage could be facing empty auditoriums when he kicks off the “America’s Comeback” tour after people signed up for the free event with no interest in going.
Indie legend Tim Burgess helped push the prank on social media. He tweeted: “People are booking free tickets for Nigel Farage’s event and are planning not to show up Please share the link to stop these irresponsible people spoiling a lovely evening.”

If that wasn’t bad enough for him an artist called David Ziggy Greene on Twitter drew this masterpiece, which blew up on the social media platform.
Now cartoonist Martin Rawson has set up the #DrawNigelFarage challenge.
He tweeted: “The Truly Gruesome #DrawNigelFarage Challenge is duly ON! Start drawing now. Finish by 31st May. All media preferred.”

There have been some very interesting images posted using this hastag. We have put some of the best ones we have seen together. Enjoy!
Here’s a little understated something for @MartinRowson’s #DrawNigelFarage challenge. I honestly wish I could break down my inhibitions, be less gentle, and really express what I feel. pic.twitter.com/KF97iCqTTK— David Waywell (@DavidWaywell) May 21, 2021
For the @MartinRowson #TemplateNigelFarage challenge. I prefer the ‘template’ challenges rather than the #DrawNigelFarage as I’m the only one who enters it and in theory have more chance of winning. pic.twitter.com/4eSeKDIZgo— MarshallNotFunny (@marshallcartoon) May 20, 2021
The last hour has been pretty miserable. I try not to think of Nigel Farage too often, but have made a brief exception for @MartinRowson and the #DrawNigelFarage game. Off out now for some much needed fresh air. pic.twitter.com/1rz3eEWQPp— Olly Potts (@OllyPottsArts) May 20, 2021
