Alexander Bennett: I Can't Stand The Man, Myself

A show about hating yourself and, amongst other things, choosing not to. Look me up on YouTube. Work in progress

Creator of the cult hit game show Hell To Play and new podcast Born Yesterday, Alexander Bennett's comedy has been variously described as dark, silly, filthy and thoughtful.

He was a key player in Mark Watson's Comedy Marathon, is part of the award-nominated Consignia collective and co-orchestrated Edinburgh Fringe happening Dan Vs Food, in which a cast of comedians (including Phil Wang, Ed Gamble and Sophie Duker) watched a man called Dan eat his lunch. He has recently appeared on Radio 4 and The Comedian's Comedian podcast.

"Passionate and praiseworthy dark observational comedy" - The Skinny

"Courageous and thought-provoking" - The Scotsman

"His sharp interpretations of the world around him add a sinister spin to the everyday - Unique and hilarious" - The Reviews Hub

"A producer and performer of some refreshingly different material" - Chortle
