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
