Scott Bennett - Headliner
After starting comedy in late 2009, Scott has rapidly established himself as one of the fastest rising stars on the UK circuit. Likeable, with a warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic.
In demand by many of the big clubs, Scott delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living. His sharply written routines have been delighting audiences across the country. In 2017 Scott supported his comedy hero, Rob Brydon on his National UK tour dates for his latest show “I am Standing Up”
and in 2018 Scott was tipped as one of the “ones to watch” by respected industry online magazine, Chortle.
“Clearly has a big future, flashes of Peter Kay, Jason Manford and John Bishop” Bruce Dessau, Amused Moose Finals Review 2015
Sean McLoughlin - Support
Sean has supported the likes of Ricky Gervais, Katherine Ryan and Doc Brown on tour, and made appearances on Russell Howard’s Stand-Up Central and Comedy Central’s Live At The Comedy Store.
He has played the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for many years, and performed a debut hour-long show ‘Backbone’ there in 2013 and the follow-up ‘I Will Prevail’ in 2014. 2015’s show was called ‘Whatever It Takes’ which had another full run in Edinburgh and then toured around the country including a stint at the Soho Theatre in London.
“Delivers biting lines with real verve, a skilful comic with routines of brilliance” Chortle
Russell Hicks - Compere
Anyone who has seen Russell Hicks knows that it is never the same show twice. Taking a different approach to most comedians, Russell Hicks weaves improvisation with stream of conscious delivery that has moved many audience members to return for two nights in a row. Nothing in this biography can do his act justice other than to say, you just have to see him live.
“Astonishing, astonishing and astonishing. He simply took the roof of the place leaving people talking about his act all night. His entire 20 minutes was totally improvised based entirely on audience interaction. It did help that we had one member of the audience who looked like the twin brother of Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm and provided Russell with so much material to improv on. Based on this one gentlemens comments, Russell created a world where he is doing a West End show about willy-helicopters, the 28th October is now International Toothpaste Day and his performance last night was just a figment of the gentlemans imagination. The audience were at times almost collapsing with laughter on the floor and I was one of them. Watching Russell Hicks last night was reminiscent of watching early Ross Noble on stage.
