Scott Bennett, live at The Attic Comedy Club in Southampton
Scott Benett "great Scott tour show" is coming to our Southampton Comedy Club. Scott has recently been described by the Evening Standard as "Live Comedy's best-kept secret."
Scott Bennett has been blazing a trail through the stand-up circuit for the best part of a decade. He's a hilariously observational comic with an enviable gag rate.
Following his recent debut on BBC One's Live at the Apollo, Scott is an act on the verge of breaking through into the big time.
