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
Rory O'Hanlon - Support
Having started his career in Dublin, award winning Irish stand-up comedian, writer and actor Rory O’ Hanlon is a firm favourite at comedy clubs across the UK and Ireland. Described by Chortle as having “presence, poise and timing” and by the Irish Times as “a joke every 30 seconds”, his rapid fire delivery regularly has audiences crying with laughter.
‘posessing the quintessential gift of spinning a tale with ease’ – Spoonfed
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. Brilliant” Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club
