Having barely survived his car exploding on a motorway, Nelson isn’t exactly about to pussyfoot around the political car crashes currently happening. Award-winning stand-up renowned for brilliantly dark material, host of BBC Radio’s smash-hit The Good, the Bad and the Unexpected, creator of viral sensation News at 3 (180+ million views!). 'Unquestionably talented... knack for making people laugh about things they know they really shouldn't laugh about... Pithy-but-charming delivery, great jokes, and lots of them' (Telegraph). 'Profoundly hilarious... Irreverence done right' **** (List). 'Blistering material which pushes dangerously near the boundaries of good taste' (Sunday Times).

Went to see Mark Nelson on Sat 17th and once again we weren't disappointed. Nelson covers the Brexit debacle with audience interaction key, but throws in hilarious stories and references to his family life. Sometimes close to the bone, sometime testing, but always hilarious. With his polished delivery and audience engagement, Nelson has rightly earned many accolades over the last few years. It's the first show I look for when the Fringe programme is announced and would definitely recommend as 'not to be missed!'

Mark Nelson is a great storyteller whose set had me in stitches.
Although Brexit is the backdrop, he shares much more than that about his life as a middle aged, b and q loving Dad. His observations were easily relatable and his quick insights made him very funny.
He engaged well with the audience and they responded to him with good humour.
All in all a great wee show. Catch it if you get the chance .

Saw Mark a week or so ago and it was certainly my highlight of the fringe. A hour full of clever funny material. Whole audience were so engaged from start to finish and I would highly recommend you make a point of going to see him.

Mark always puts on a cracking show. His Brexit-themed show is very funny and there's a very clever comic brain behind it. You should go.

Mark Nelson's Brexit wounds was one of the highlights of my EdFringe. Incredibly funny, clever and rather on point. A must see! Hoping he will bring his delightful show to London so that I can see it again!

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 23 days ago

It’s surely nigh on impossible to take a new angle on a subject which has dominated our news headlines for the past three years, so Mark Nelson sensibly doesn’t bother to try. Instead, Brexit Wounds is a gentle ramble around his own observations on the topic, with frequent diversions into...

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 29 days ago

A canny Scottish friend speculates that Boris might even try and reverse devolution, with Trump’s blessing, after the Nationalists refused to meet him. Now there’s an interesting drama, ripe material for the likes of Scottish comic Mark Nelson, who engaged his audience in a far smaller space than Forde’s in...

The show also changes topic with comments about adult toys which his children had come across under their parent’s bed.

His humour is so sharp with comments about the audience in another show which is currently being performed at the same time.

Definitely worth going along to.

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 42 days ago

Mark Nelson struts on stage to banging Rammstein industrial metal, plunging headfirst into a heady rhetoric on Brexit. He leaves us in no doubt as to which side of the fence he’s on, and the hour that follows is a slick comedic recital of the political landscape up to this...
