LAST SHOW OF THE SEASON
Tor Leisure Centre, Glastonbury

Having gone down so well as a support in October, Scott Bennett is back to headline the last show of the season. Scott has rapidly established himself as one of the fastest rising stars on the UK circuit. Likeable, with a warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire livewire with an undeniable no-nonsense logic. In demand by many of the big clubs, Scott delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living. Recently Scott has supported both Michael McIntyre and his comedy hero Rob Brydon, and was labelled as “One to watch for 2018″ by Chortle.
“Fabulous turns of phrase and pungent expressions. Superb character creations” – Chortle
Joey Page has spent the last few years bouncing around the comedy circuit, supporting the likes of Josie Long and Noel Fielding and appearing on shows such as BBC 3′s comedy marathon, Nevermind the Buzzcocks and Noel Fielding’s Luxury comedy. He did have a childhood dream to become a wrestler, dinosaur, or spaceman but luckily has settled on becoming a stand-up comedian. Joey boasts an extraordinary brand of highly original and surreally silly comedy. Taking his audiences on magical flights of fancy away from the humdrum of the everyday grind, Joey has an excitable yet likeable personality and he has been described as ‘one of most unique and memorable rising stars in the business’.
“This innately likeable young man has an instinct for funny” – Chortle
Brighton based William Stone is a stand-up comedian with a uniquely absurd style; his one-liners earning him a place in the 2018 BBC New Comedy Awards final. During the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, William also got to perform live on Jo Whiley and Simon Mayo’s Drive Time Show (BBC Radio 2). Fast gaining a reputation for being one of the hardest-working new acts on the scene, Willam performed over 400 times in his first three years of comedy. A skilled and prolific joke writer, William has performed stand-up at many of the UK’s major comedy club and also regularly writes for Radio 4’s Newsjack.
“The man surely has a solid career in comedy ahead of him”- Chortle
MC for the night is last year’s Petfringe Comedian of The Year Finalist Karen Bayley. Midlands based Karen has been on the circuit for over a decade. She made a name for herself early on in her career reaching the semi-final of the prestigious BBC New Comedy Awards and was later crowned the winner of the 2001 Komedia New Act prize. She then went on to become the first ever female winner of the prestigious Comedy Store King Gong award as well as reaching the finals of both the BBC New Comedy Awards and the Babycham Funny Women Award. Warm and welcoming but with a delightfully saucy and spiky edge, her bold, no nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike.
