‘Brilliantly weird’ – chortle.co.uk
‘Relentless originality…manic and gripping’ – The Guardian
Like a truly bizarre hybrid of Harry Hill, Half Man Half Biscuit and Viz comic Seymour is a teller of extremely tall tales and High Priest of the terrifically twisted one-liner. He is a former City Life Comedian of the Year and Best Breakthrough Act at the North West Comedy Awards. He was also victorious in the Cup A Soup Comedy Challenge.
You may mock such a curiously named title but the prize money was 10 grand. Strewth. He’s an Edinburgh Festival favourite proffering multi award winning surreal hilarity as featured on ‘Dave’s One Night Stand’, ‘The Weird World Of Russell Brand’, ‘The Stand-Up Show’ and ‘Clive Anderson’s Chat Room’. His recent Edinburgh show ‘Squeg’ garnered 4 star reviews. He was also a regular in BBC2′s Johnny Vegas sitcom ‘Ideal’ playing the ill-fated twins ‘Craig’ and ‘Steve’. As a result he is now unable to walk down the street without being recognised by the nation’s stoners.
‘Quirky one liners worthy of the likes of Stewart Francis’ – Chortle
A bone dry personality with a collection of wonderfully inventive and instantly quotable quips sown liberally throughout his set. He was a finalist in the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year competition and has been described as a ‘real standout performer whose slow build up to quirky one-liners had tears streaming down my cheeks’ by Bridlington Free Press.
‘A softly spoken giant with a Superman kiss-curl, he has an insightful take on the tribulations of life as a would-be modern man’ – Spotlight Comedy. Comedy Cellar Best Yorkshire Act runner-up 2011.
‘Diatribes a-plenty from a seasoned stand-up with both logic and charm on his side’ – bbc.co.uk
Winner Takes All Comedy runner-up 2012.
Compere – Scott Bennett
‘A definite star of the future’ – Huddersfield Examiner
‘He demolished the place to a ridiculous degree across his time on stage. The audience loved him, lapped up every word he said and many of them were laughing so hard that they had tears streaming down their faces. He came within a whisker of encoring in the middle section’ – Chris Brooker, Comedy Promoter.
Old Speckled Hen Comedian Of The Year 2010 and Comedy Cellar Yorkshire Comedian Of The Year 2011 among many other accolades. Scott provides a generous helping of wonderfully witty comic observations about life’s little quirks, relationships and human behaviour. Served by a gregarious Yorkshireman with relentless enthusiasm and boundless energy.
