SCOTT BENNETT 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. He has supported Michael McIntyre and Rob Brydon on their UK tours. He was runner up in the prestigious English Comedian of The Year in 2016. Catch him here before he is selling out theatres and arenas.
Clearly has a big future, flashes of Peter Kay, Jason Manford and John Bishop - Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
JOHN NEWTON - began his comedy career in 2003, he fast became known for his inventive writing, covering a massive spectrum of subjects from the surreal to the hard hitting, yet still managing to remember that "the gag" comes first. In that respect, he's an old fashioned gag teller/writer and proud of it. If you want jokes, John is your man!
John Newton does not require gimmicks or stage characters as he has something more valuable to any comedian, good old fashioned solid gags -
Plus Bedford favourite Paul Revill will host the show.
