Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Scott Bennett, Stephanie Laing, and host Sully O’Sullivan
Best show Nominee Leicester Comedy Festival 2019
Amused Moose Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee
Star of lock-down hit Stand-Up From The Shed, Scott Bennett is a multi-award winning act, and one of the most popular headliners currently performing in the UK. Delivering wry observations on the absurdity of modern living, his sharply-written routines, drawn from real-life experiences have been delighting audiences across the country.
In 2018 and 2019 Scott was tipped as one of the "ones to watch" by respected industry online magazine, Chortle, following a series of highly rated solo shows, award nominations, and a high-profile tour support slot with TV's Rob Brydon.
As well as working as a succesful 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.
Scott has also appeared on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz, The Now Show, The Likely Dads and Elephant in the Room with Sarah Millican, The Summer Festival with Daliso Chaponda, The Comedy Club with Arthur Smith, and Knock Knock with Helen Lederer. He also featured on the BBC One show, Live from The Edinburgh Fringe.
“Fabulous turns of phrase and pungent expressions, superb character creations” - Chortle
“Great material, great delivery, a very funny man” - Rob Brydon
“Brilliantly funny, a joy to watch” - Chris Ramsey
Goofy and peculiar, Stephanie Laing’s comedy is partway between the needy oddness of Maria Bamford and the upbeat affability of Josie Long. Her material is a mix of silliness, filth and unusual observations, underpinned by a disarming honesty which makes her seem charmingly vulnerable.
A regular on the circuit Stephanie has also become a stalwart of comedy festivals across the country having appeared at Brighton Fringe, Leicester Comedy Festival, York Comedy Festival, Bath Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival as well as appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe every year since 2010. Not content with just performing in the UK Stephanie has also appeared at UCB in New York & The Laugh Factory in L.A.
Most recently in 2018 Stephanie took her solo show ‘Mad About The Boy’ to the Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth comedy festivals.
“Laing is a jovial, baby faced performer who comes across as utterly unencumbered, so it doesn’t especially feel like adult humour when it plainly is... Laing has a Sarah Millican-esque appeal” - Chortle
“Disgusting and delightful in equal measure. She is definitely one to watch” - Three Weeks
“Gloriously silly … wonderfully unpretentious” - Broadway Baby
Sully O'Sullivan has been declared a highlight of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival by The NZ Herald, a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, featured on Australian TV’s The Comedy Channel, hosted a sellout standup tour of Croatia, won Canada’s annual Improvaganza Tournament, and completed 2 UK national tours supporting cult Heavy Metal Comic Steve Hughes.
First stepping onto a standup stage in June 1998, Sully's talent gained instant recognition as he won his first national standup award less than 12 months later. 9 years on he’s featured in four seasons of New Zealand’s award winning TV standup showcase 'Pulp Comedy', been nominated for the NZ Comedy Industry's supreme award by the NZ Comedy Trust, and nominated by his fellow performers for the title of NZ's Best MC.
“Amazing” - NME
“A blast of hilarity” - Manchester Evening News
