Mark Nelson’s mix of dark humour, cutting observations and superb one-liners have seen him firmly established as one of the UK’s biggest-hitting comedy powerhouses. With a likeable manner on stage belying some of the stronger content, Nelson often has audiences laughing at things they know they really shouldn’t be laughing at. Since winning the first ever Scottish Comedian Of The Year Award in 2006, Mark has gone from strength to strength. A regular on Scottish TV and radio, he has also written for Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week, and 8 Out Of 10 Cats and created the BBC’s biggest ever online hit, News At 3, which has over a quarter of a billion views!
“Remarkably accomplished stage presence… blistering material” Sunday Times “Talent that is simply obscene” List
Online viral sensation Louis Burgess has been dubbed the freshest and most exciting musical comedy acts in the UK. Louis may have over 50 million online views but it’s live where he really comes alive. His rip-roaring concoction of singing, rapping, sampling, beat boxing, strumming, looping and more creates a fire hydrant of comedy. Frequently described as “Bill Bailey on Crack” and “The Russell Howard of the Grungecore Folk Scene” he aims to create a new sub-genre within the genre of genre itself.
“Charisma charm and wit… had the crowd in stitches” Teignmouth Post “Crying with laughter” North Devon Gazette
Dave Longley can delight a hen party and the comedy connoisseur on the same night. on the one hand, abrasive, crude and insulting and on the other, articulate, intelligent, charming and disarmingly funny. Longley’s towering stage presence and intensity, combined with his cutting wit have made him one of the most popular circuit comics in the UK, whether it’s doling out thought-provoking insights or revelling in toilet humour, Longley is a gifted wordsmith with great audience interaction skills.
