The hardest-working man in UK comedy, Scott Bennett is tipped for imminent breakthrough to the mainstream, so you won’t be surprised to hear that he grasped the pandemic nettle and started performing online stand-up shows from his shed pretty much on day one. We talk about sacrificing a proper career to become a comic in his thirties, and how he processes the guilt he feels at following his dream, the “elastic limit” he has with his audience, doubling down on your best bits, and that old enemy, too much polish…
20 mins of extras available exclusively to the Insiders Club include Scott going into detail on his toolkit for observational comedy, and the nuance of how he writes with other people, including Rob Brydon, Daliso Chaponda and Jason Manford - how does it change his voice and creativity to step into the shoes of another act?
As the live comedy circuit undergoes a painful transformation into some unknown new form, there HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME to keep the podcast alive and get hold of oodles of sweet extra content (including the new special episode about The Great Pivot with ComCom Consultant Pete Dobbing) with a regular subscription.
