Booked Scott to do a gig for me at a sailing club last night, it was a gig with a very wide range of ages (20 to 80 years old) and a quite conservative (with both small and big "C") audience and he stormed it. Lovely, confident on stage manner and a cheeky chappie personae which gets the audience onside right from the off. Also some lovely material and stories which draw the audience in and all wrapped up in a fantastic performance, few acts inhabit their material as much as Mr Bennett. Smashing jokes and an act that has plenty of laughs all the way through. Wouldn't hesitate to book him again for pretty much any type of audience and gig, highly recommended.
