Scott Bennett: Leap Year (Work in Progress)
“People say its brave to do stand-up comedy, its braver to let someone you love do it”
This year Scott has finally made a decision and it's changed his life and the lives of those around him. What does it mean to follow your dreams when you feel like you have so much to lose?
Tipped by Chortle as “One to Watch in 2018”, Rob Brydon tour support,
BBC News Quiz Writer, Chris Ramsey show writer, and Amused Moose Edinburgh Award Nominee Scott Bennett, previews his return to the Fringe with an honest and hilarious new stand up show.
“Great material, great delivery, a very funny man” - Rob Brydon
“Brilliantly funny, a joy to watch"” - Chris Ramsey
“Fabulous turns of phrase and pungent expressions, superb character creations” - Chortle
Hal Branson: MBOLO (Work in Progress)
The debut hour from one of comedy's rising stars.
Join Hal as he relives a 2003 trip to Uganda to get over a nervous breakdown and nagging ganja habit. And help build a school.
Along the way he had life-changing experiences including learning the Ugandan words for both sets of genitals (mbolo and eganazi), being arrested for smoking weed on a beach in Zanzibar and trying to bribe an undercover policeman, and having to suffer the indignity of having his rather nice leather sandals ripped to shreds when he was attacked by a cheetah in an illegal cheetah farm.
“An understated comedy gem” - Huffington Post
“Clever, likeable and with a great eye for detail, effortlessly watchable” - NARC
“Hal Branson has natural affability in spades, and his self-referential storytelling is as heart-warming as his wordplay, hitting home with the audience throughout” - Giggle Beats
