Kirk-Ella Comedy Club Presents Scott Bennett

Thu 18th Apr 2019 @ 7:30 pm

£7 – £8

Kirk Ella Comedy Club is a new monthly stand up comedy night held at The Wheatsheaf pub in Kirk Ella.

Each month we will bring you four comedians including a top headliner from the comedy circuit, all introduced by a regular compere. For this, our second night we are delighted to present the magnificent Scott Bennett as our headline act. You might not have heard of Scott yet but you will do, and this is great chance to see this great up and coming comedian before he inevitably hits the big time. Here’s a bit more about him:

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 2013 and 2015 he was selected to perform in the prestigious Big Value showcase show for Just the Tonic at the Edinburgh fringe, the show has previously been a springboard to success for many household names including Jason Manford and Sarah Millican.

His debut hour stand up show “About a Roy: Stories about me dad” was nominated for the highly acclaimed Amused Moose Comedy Award and was selected as one of the top ten shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015. As well as receiving rave reviews, Scott was selected to perform an extract from the show as part of the famous Mervyn Stutter’s “Pick of the Fringe Showcase”. The show also received a Best New Show nomination at the Buxton Fringe Festival.

A versatile and confident performer Scott regularly appears at many of established clubs including; The Comedy Store, Glee, Jongleurs, Highlight, Just the Tonic, Ten Feet Tall, Funhouse Comedy, Buzz Comedy, Frog and Bucket, Baby Blue, Hilarity Bites and many other independents. He is a resident MC with Funhouse Comedy and is also making a name for himself on the corporate and after dinner speaking circuit.

Recently Scott was also thrilled to be selected to do a support slot for Michael McIntyre as part of his work in progress shows at the Duchess Theatre in London alongside Keri Godliman, Russell Kane and Ed Gamble.

Scott is also a regular writer and performer on the new “Panelbeaters” show created by Gary Delaney and Ciamh Mcdonnell. The show, presented by Jason Manford, recently completed some sell out dates at the Lowry theatre in Manchester. In 2017 and 18 Scott supported his comedy hero, Rob Brydon on his National UK tour dates for his latest show “I am Standing Up”

In 2018 Scott was tipped as one of the “ones to watch for 2018” by respected industry online magazine, Chortle.

As well as working as a successful stand up comic in his own right, Scott has written for high profile acts including Jason Manford, is a writer for The Chris Ramsey show for Comedy Central and has written for the News Quiz on BBC Radio 4. He has also featured on the BBC Radio 4Extra podcasts, “The Comedy Club” with Arthur Smith and “Knock Knock” with Helen Lederer.

Hosted by Kirk Ella Comedy Club’s second best compere, known to some as The Man, The Myth, The Legend, and to many more as The Other One Who Sometimes Does The Compere Thing But Isn’t Quite Jed Salisbury: it’s Stone Cold Rich Austin.
Doors open 7:30pm, show starts 8:00pm Tickets £8 in advance or £10 on the door (£7 with NUS / NHS or What’s On Hub card) Tickets available at HullBoxOffice.com or from the venue itself: The Wheatsheaf, Kirk Ella HU10 7TL With Kirk Ella Comedy Club, the village’s only comedy venue, we aim to provide a unique comedy experience.
This intimate club gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. We are a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice.
With four acts and a compere it’s great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it’s the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
