Darlington Comedy Festival presents Scott Bennett & Ruth Cockburn
Scott Bennett: We Are All Born Artists (Work in Progress)
After recently turning forty Scott is becoming more reflective. In life we make choices, what would happen if we took a different path? As a father he’s concerned about the legacy he’s leaving behind for his children. How are we in the position to teach the next generation anything when we are making such a mess of things ourselves?
Join Scott for a hilarious and punchy hour of stand up as he looks at the past, the present, and the future and tries to find a way through the madness.

Ruth Cockburn: Knees Bent, Bras off, Ra Ra Ra! (Work in Progress)
You are invited to my family party! Welcome.
Like all family parties there are weird traditions, songs, games and drama. It’s not a family party if Sam hasn’t started crying after three gins and Veronica’s started an argument in the kitchen. At the party you will hear family secrets, sing along to songs and learn new traditions.
The show is a comedy theatre show, using spoken word, poetry, songs and storytelling, to look at how we celebrate in this country.
In the absence of religious traditions what do we use in its place? How do we come together to rejoice? You will leave remembering how important it is to celebrate and find your tribe.
