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

James Cook - Compere
You can often find him performing at clubs such as The Glee, Jongleurs, Komedia among others, and he’s a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe, either doing stand-up, or performing shows about board gaming.
His act has been described as “truly original” (Danny Wallace (off of the telly)), whereas he’s been called “suave and chirpy” by that publishing powerhouse, the Bromsgrove Advertiser, and a “sarcastic raconteur” by the Leeds Metro.
For some reason, this means that he has been likened to “the future Frank Skinner” (Birmingham Metro) and “Dylan Moran’s younger brother” (The Stage). How this is possible remains a mystery.
James won a Jongleurs/Spike Milligan award for being the funniest person in the Midlands in 2003. It’s been fourteen years and they haven’t asked for it back, so he’s assuming it must still be him.
“his quick tongue and dry sense of humour kept me laughing” (BBC Tees).
