We are delighted to welcome Dumfries’s own multi award-winning stand-up comedian for an incredibly special live show at the Theatre Royal in Dumfries. There are only a limited number of tickets available to be part of our live audience for this show so get your tickets quick before this exclusive event sells out!

Mark Nelson is host of BBCs smash-hit panel show “The Good, the Bad and the Unexpected” as well as the Saturday Live at the Stand series that kept us all laughing during 2020.

Equally renowned for his brilliantly crafted writing as for his hilarious, intelligent and no-holds-barred live stand up, Mark is also the creator of BBC’s viral phenomenon “News at 3” (more than 130,000,000 views!).

Book now to watch some much needed comedy whilst trying make sense of the past year of international insanity.

‘Irreverent, vulgar and humane consideration of society’s taboos… While many a comic chucks a badly aimed pot-shot at political correctness, it takes a skilled comedian to attempt a meaningful consideration of society’s taboos. This is irreverence done right.’  – ★★★★ The List

 ‘Powerful punchlines hit the spot … Simple, blunt, but perfectly aimed barbs… devastatingly effective.’ – Chortle

 ‘Blistering material which pushes dangerously near the boundaries of good taste.’  – Sunday Times
