Never one to shy away from the controversial, Nelson's latest show sees him exploring the meaning of his life now that he is officially Older Than Jesus. In this uncompromisingly hilarious show Nelson again brandishes his uniquely intelligent and sharp humour and showcases his simply sublime writing skills for a new hour of pure and simple stand-up comedy. Already renowned for making his audience laugh at the sorts of things that they know they shouldn't, often before they even realize they are doing it, Nelson is very much a major comedy star on the rise.
As well as being an experienced Fringe performer, Mark Nelson has sold out shows at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and recently garnered a nomination for Best Headliner at the 2015 Scottish Comedy Awards. Mark Nelson's Guide to Marriage (BBC Radio Scotland) has also been nominated for Best Radio Show at the awards, having previously won the same category in its debut year.
It is not just Mark's performances which have gained recognition, with his work as a writer on shows such as Russell Howard's Good News and the BBC's satirical 2014 series Don't Drop the Baton also garnering acclaim. Older Than Jesus sees Mark continue to stretch the boundaries of comedy and split the sides of his audiences.
