Alexander Bennett’s comedy has been variously described as dark, silly, filthy and thoughtful. Still in his twenties, he has an awful lot under his belt, including numerous Edinburgh Fringe runs, several filmed stand up specials and creating the cult hit comedy game show Hell To Play.

Recently, he was a key player in Mark Watson’s 26.2 Hour Comedy Marathon, was nominated at the Leicester Comedy Awards as part of Consignia and co-orchestrated a huge charity event at the Pleasance Grand in Edinburgh called Dan Vs Food, in which a cast of 25+ comedians (including Phil Wang, Ed Gamble, Iain Stirling, Nick Helm, Sophie Duker and Ivo Graham) watched a man called Dan eat his lunch.

Alexander Bennett regularly performs with This Is Your Trial and Comedy Auction, as well as the acclaimed Alternative Comedy Memorial Society. His new material night This Is Not A Cult has run at the Camden Comedy Club for many years, is recommended by Time Out and has featured all sorts of TV names.

​He has been a guest lecturer at the Royal College of Art and has appeared on several radio shows. As well as a comedian, Alexander is a cartoonist and filmmaker.

"Touched with madness... I don't think I can begin to do him justice; a producer and performer of some refreshingly different material"


"Courageous and thought-provoking"

The Scotsman

"Witty, weird and dark, the one to watch out for: at the spearhead of a wave of great new comics. All hail Alexander Bennett!"

Harry Hill

"Warm, insane and very funny"

The Guardian

"Inspired; A comedian with plenty of potential"

The Skinny

"Very funny indeed. Very silly and satirical. Just bloody very good. So go and see him or you'll look very stupid. Very stupid"

Fringe Pig

"His sharp interpretations of the world around him add a sinister spin to the everyday. Unique and hilarious"
