Once described as “as frisky as a terrier on heat”, Mandy Knight is a true dame of British stand-up comedy.
The first female comedian to compere that bastion of old-school stand-up The Comedy Store, Mandy has been breaking down barriers all her life. After a traumatic childhood of abuse and social uncare, she attended the famous Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. After becoming fully-trained as a classical actress, and then using her diploma to spend four years in the traditional acting alternative career as a waitress, Mandy Knight decided to ditch the period frocks and the pinafore and enter the world of stand up comedy. When asked why, Mandy said it was due to an irrational fear of a life in fringe theatre, exploring her inner child by pretending to be an oak tree, a fridge or a tambourine.
'Winner of the prestigious Time Out Award for Best Comedian. Razor sharp tongue, prone to shock but some of the best material on the circuit, excellent comic.' (Glee)

Stylishly shirted, Yorkshire-born Scott Bennett delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living. His sharply-written routines, drawn from real-life experiences have been delighting audiences across the country; except in Yorkshire, where they are deeply suspicious of his shirts.
Likeable, with a warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic. English Comedian of the Year Runner Up, Comedy Cellar New Act of the Year and Old Speckled Hen Comedian of the Year.
'A generous helping of wonderfully witty comic observations about life's little quirks, relationships and human behaviour. Served by a Yorkshireman with relentless enthusiasm and boundless energy' (http://www.bbc.co.uk)
'Naturally hilarious, the highlight of the evening' (Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe 2013)
'A star of the future' (Huddersfield Examiner)
'This loveable rising star enthrals his audiences with his warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic' (Funhouse Comedy).
