Alexander Bennett: Trust Me

#FindYour Funny

A work-in-progress of a new show about the risk of trust. I call it trusk. I should probably stop calling it that.

Alexander has collaborated with Mark Watson, 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 Ed Gamble, Iain Stirling, Phil Wang, Sophie Duker and Ivo Graham) watched a man called Dan eat his lunch. He has recently appeared on Radio 4, Insane in the Men Brain, Shame is Delicious and The Comedian's Comedian podcast.

He is the creator of Hell To Play and the Born Yesterday podcast.

"Fun, funny, tremendously engaging and even frequently joyous. He holds the audience in the palm of his hand, pulling big laughs from every quadrant. His act doesn’t get the attention it should do" Chortle
"Bennett is undoubtedly a funny man - self deprecating stories that leaves his audience in stitches" The List
"Well crafted, acutely observed stand up from a mind constantly at war with its host - Bennett's storytelling skills refresh every routine - an impressive hour" Fest
"Dark soul bearing comedy mixing laughs with honesty - evokes the spirit of early Johnny Vegas" Beyond The Joke
"Great comedic timing and the ability to frequently take a joke in an unexpected direction" Voice


A surprisingly powerful show that, even with a dark theme, manages to bring some light into the world
