The sensational hit show from Scotland’s multi Award-winning stand-up and creator of BBC’s viral phenomenon “News at 3” (more than 130,000,000 views!) has had a reboot as Nelson (and a good proportion of the rest of us on this planet) try and make sense of the past year of international insanity.

Equally renowned for his brilliantly dark material, appearances on Radio and writing for Mock the Week, this hilarious but no-holds-barred live show sees Nelson wondering whether there’s any f*cking point in taking anything in the f*cking world, f*cking seriously any more... This is pure unadulterated, intelligent and hard-hitting stand-up – no snowflakes allowed!

‘Irreverent, vulgar and humane consideration of society’s taboos… While many a comic chucks a badly aimed pot-shot at political correctness, it takes a skilled comedian to attempt a meaningful consideration of society’s taboos. This is irreverence done right.’ ★★★★ (The List)

‘Pithy-but-charming delivery, great jokes, lots of them.’ (The Telegraph)

‘Powerful punchlines hit the spot … Simple, blunt, but perfectly aimed barbs… devastatingly effective.’ (Chortle)

‘Blistering material which pushes dangerously near the boundaries of good taste.’ (The Sunday Times)
