Steve Bennett, Irish Comedian of the Year, is Ireland’s most endearing comedic talent. Bennett blends charmingly sharp wit and discerning musical comedy. With a charismatic and energetic presence, Chortle has named Bennett “an adept entertainer with an engagingly wry sense of humour”.
Before Bennett received the largest prize in Irish comedy, his achievements included winning Show Me The Funny (2014) and Best Newcomer at the UK Musical Comedy Awards (2014). You might have also seen him on the Flahavans ad, or on National radio saying nothing about porridge!
As a comedian, Bennett is well established on the Irish and international circuit, playing all the comedy and music festivals from Electric Picnic to Vodafone Comedy Festival. He has performed several solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe festival along with Perth, Adelaide & Melbourne festivals in Australia.
Steve also MCs at a variety of events including corporate awards shows, book launches & conventions. He’s a celebrant at weddings and will host whatever else you’ve got if you need a charming host to make your night run smoothly with a smile.
Always thinking of new comedy concepts, Bennett is an experienced comedy coordinator producing and promoting many shows like:
- The Bingo, a monthly gameshow filled with Craic, Balls & SurPrizes;
- Table Quizzes where funny answers and silly games can help you win;
- This is Your Trial, an improv comedy courtroom show;
- Not Quite Mass, Steve’s Comedy Cult;
- Dungeons & Naggins, an interactive storytelling experience, with drinking!
