Co­me­dian hopes to con­quer the Wee Toon

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS - Mark Davey ed­i­tor@camp­bel­town­courier.co.uk

A CO­ME­DIAN with more than 100 mil­lion video views on BBC Scot­land’s web­site will wise­crack through the night in Camp­bel­town.

Shore Street pub man­ager Lewis Nel­son’s Plat­inum Bar Hire presents a One Night Stand of in­com­pa­ra­ble com­edy.

Crafted hu­mour

Head­liner Mark Nel­son - no re­la­tion brings in­tel­li­gent, but edgy, beau­ti­fully crafted hu­mour.

Since tak­ing the reins at Whisky Macs as the youngest li­censee in Scot­land, Mr Nel­son, 22, has not been short of ideas to pep up the Wee Toon’s night life.

His lat­est ven­ture, a night of com­edy on Novem­ber 18 at Camp­bel­town Town Hall, fea­tures some of the top names in Scot­tish stand-up: Mark Nel­son – not his younger brother as some seem to think – Keir McAl­lis­ter and Elaine Mal­colm­son.

Lewis, 22, said: ‘The line-up has been pro­vided by Salt n Sauce Pro­mo­tions Ltd, which owns and op­er­ates The Stand com­edy clubs in Glas­gow and Ed­in­burgh.

‘Mark’s name has caused some con­fu­sion lo­cally and a lot of peo­ple seem to think I’m giv­ing my younger brother his first gig!
