Scott Bennett: Leap Year

What does it mean to follow your dreams when you feel like you have so much to lose? Last year’s Chortle’s One To Watch, Scott Bennett, will tell you as he has finally made a decision that has changed his life and the lives of his family. This is a show about sacrifice, support, love and discovering who you really are. 

Scott has rapidly established himself as one of the fastest rising stars on the UK’s comedy circuit today. His debut hour was nominated for the highly acclaimed Amused Moose Comedy Award in 2015 and he has since gone on to perform in a support slot for Michael McIntyre and can currently be seen supporting his comedy hero Rob Brydon on his latest nationwide tour.

He is a regular writer and performer on the Panelbeaters podcast, contributor to BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz and has written for various high profile acts such as Jason Manford. Scott is currently writing for Chris Ramsey’s new Comedy Central series, The Chris Ramsey Show, and you will soon hear Scott featuring on Helen Lederer’s new BBC podcast Knock Knock. 

Performing in the MET Studio at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre on Wednesday 16 October.


Jonny and the Baptists Love Stafford and Hate Bastards

A very loving show for an unloving world. With songs. 

We live in a divided world, and this act wants to cross that divide with musical and satirical comedy. 

In their four previous nationwide tours, multi-award nominated musical-comedy-satirists, Jonny & The Baptists, have accurately predicted every single major political disaster.  They’re sick of being so accurate about terrible things, so their new show is about how everything is going to be fine.

This is a show about love, friendship, and trying to fix the rhetoric that has divided Britain – but unfortunately they have called it Jonny and the Baptists Love Stafford & Hate Bastards, so it might not completely be able to do that.

Performing in the MET Studio at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre on Tuesday 8 October.
