Headliner Mark Nelson
After last years runaway success with BGT winner the Lost Voice Guy, Whipman comedy is back!
Now in its 4th year, the Whipman comedy night is back with award-winning Scottish comedian Mark Nelson.
Comedy fans will be familiar with Mark from BBC Scotland radio and TV. He is the regular presenter of the BBC Scotland radio show “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” and often to be seen and heard on radio BBC Scotland’s “Breaking The News”.
Social media watchers may also recognise him from his “News at 3” videos with his political influencer daughter Isla.
Mark will be supported by London based (Cornish man) Matt Price and Northern Ireland’s Paul McDaniel. The night will all be held together with comedy glue by your regular host Jeannie Jones.
BBC New Comedy Award Winner
Over The Lyne (OTL) can still remember meeting Stephen Buchanan for the first time at a gig in Edinburgh about 4 or 5 years ago. A friend of OTL introduced him and said “this guy is going places!” OTL presumed he meant going places in comedy, rather than just the mega bus back to Glasgow. That prediction came true this year when Stephen won the 2018 BBC New Comedy Award.
The “Fun Size” Pride of Scottish Comedy
The Scottish comedy community was united (not a phrase that can NOT often be said) in it’s delight at Stephen’s success. Stephen (who often references his shorter stature “fun size”) is universally liked and respected on the Scottish circuit. He is a real example of a comic who works hard, grafts and crafts his material.
Not just a Stand Up
As well as being a great stand up and all round great guy, Stephen is also a prolific sketch writer and performer. You may have seen some of his sketches on social media. If not then check them out here on BBC Short Stuff

Over The Lyne are excited to announce a new monthly gig in Peebles in the newly refurbished upstairs bar and function room in the The County Inn, High street, Peebles.
On the 6th of December our headliner is Ray Bradshaw.
Billy Connolly was honoured with a knighthood this week. For Scots, Billy is universally adored. OTL grew up listening to Billy Connolly. OTL remembers parents secretly laughing (despite their official disapproval of his swearing).
When anyone asks OTL about comedy heroes, Billy is always top of the list. The thing OTL loves the most about Billy is his sense of fun. As much as dark comedy, political comedy and satire are important, Comedy should be fun and Billy does fun in abundance. The twinkle in his eye, his cheeky delivery and the enthusiasm he uses to bring his stories to life are without equal. OTL aspires to bring a fraction of the joy and happiness, Billy has brought to the world.
Below are some of Billy’s greatest words of wisdom.
Nik Coppin is our globetrotting headliner for Saturday night 4th November at Peebles Rugby Club. The start time has been delayed to 8:30pm to allow folks to attend the actual fireworks before then getting along in time for the comedy fireworks.
Hope to see you there!
