One of the UK’s fastest rising comedy stars, Scott Bennett, announces forthcoming show in his hometown of Nottingham

We could all use a few laughs during these busy, bizarre and hectic times, so what better way to forget about all your problems than with an evening of comedy.

Yorkshire-born Scott will be performing his funny and heartfelt show about sacrifice and self-discovery, jam-packed with killer routines and razor-sharp gags. With a highly likeable, warm and engaging delivery, Scott has rapidly established himself as one of the fastest rising stars on the UK’s comedy circuit today.

His debut hour was nominated for the highly acclaimed Amused Moose Comedy Award in 2015 and he has since gone on to perform as a support act for Michael McIntyre, as well as currently supporting his comedy hero, Rob Brydon, on his latest nationwide tour. Among Scott’s many other accolades he has:

  • been a regular writer and performer on the Panelbeaterspodcast
  • been a contributor to BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz
  • written for various high profile acts such as Jason Manford
