Homecoming Show For Dumfries Comedy Superstar Mark Nelson

Multi award winning stand-up comedian and Dumfries native, Mark Nelson is coming home to perform at Scotland’s oldest working theatre the Theatre Royal, Dumfries (Saturday 11 November 2023) on his debut UK & Ireland tour.   


A hugely sought after headliner throughout the UK and abroad, Mark’s ‘viciously sharp sense of timing’ Metro, distinctive mix of cutting observations, social commentary and hilarious one liners makes him one of the most formidable comics of his generation.  After selling out solo shows at major festivals worldwide including the Edinburgh Fringe and the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, Nelson is now taking his trademark no holds barred stand-up on the road.

Mark told DGWGO Entertainment News  ‘Dumfries was always gonna be first on the list of places to do on my first tour. Hometown gig. It is gonna be class’ 


Mark is also the host of BBC Radio Scotland’s “The Good, The Bad & The Unexpected” and has been seen and heard on Have I Got News For You, The One Show, The News Quiz, Breaking The News and Off The Ball.
