The Good, The Bad and the Unexpected

A Panel Show without the Twist


The Good, The Bad and The Unexpected is a comedy panel show which Dabster Productions has taken from podcasts to broadcast with BBC Radio Scotland, with the original concept devised by Kevin Anderson and Jo Caulfield.

Hosted by Mark Nelson, three guests have to convince him that their story is the best, the most joyest, the most worthy or even the kindest.

Conversely when it’s time for the bad stories, well, you can imagine…

Mark’s anti-presenter attitude is a breath of fresh air and there are plenty of unexpected quirks along the way. The show has found a new energy during the 2020 pandemic, with innovative remote-recording and no audience leading to a warmer listen. Plus Mark has had more time to practice the piano and his guitar.

Series Six broadcasts on BBC Radio Scotland in January 2021.
