For Christmas at Jesters Comedy at Park Bar we’ve got another fantastic show featuring comedy heavy-hitter Mark Nelson, with hosting from Viv Gee.
Headlining the night will be multi-award winning comedy powerhouse Mark Nelson. With a likeably disarming manner on stage belying some of the stronger content, his sets are a mix of dark humour, cutting observations and superb one-liners. Dubbed 2021 UK Circuit Comedian of the Year, Mark also has no less than five Scottish Comedy Award titles under his belt. Recently he has appeared on the BBC’s The One, BBC Three’s Comedy Marathon and BBC Scotland’s Comedy Underground and Bad Influencer. In 2017, he was flown to Australia to tape a set at the Sydney Opera House for the Just For Laughs comedy festival.
“A remarkably accomplished stage presence.” – The Sunday Times
“A viciously sharp sense of timing.” – Metro
“A knack for making people laugh about things they know they really shouldn’t laugh about… a real biting wit.” – Daily Telegraph Critic’s Choice
Hosting the evening is the very funny Viv Gee. Having performed at clubs and festivals all over the world, this award-winning comedienne has an impressive resume of TV and radio appearances for STV, BBC and BBC Radio Scotland.
“Simply a Genius” – Scotland On Sunday
