Comedian Scott is on the ‘one to watch’ list

This year’s Chortle’s One To Watch at the Fringe is Scott Bennett, with his show Leap Year.

What does it mean to follow your dreams when you feel like you have so much to lose? Scott  will tell you as he has finally made a decision that has changed his life and the lives of his family. This is a show about sacrifice, support, love and discovering who you really are.

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 in a support slot for Michael McIntyre and can currently be seen supporting his comedy hero Rob Brydon on his latest nationwide tour.

He is a regular writer and performer on the Panelbeaters podcast, contributor to BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz and has written for various high profile acts such as Jason Manford.

Scott is currently writing for Chris Ramsey’s new Comedy Central series, The Chris Ramsey Show, and you will soon hear Scott featuring on Helen Lederer’s new BBC podcast Knock Knock.

Scott and his wife have also starred in their own self-financed film and web series, the pilot for which, Caravan of Love, was recently selected for the Beeston Film Festival. Their series Pillow Talk is online now.
