‘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

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.

‘Bennett is undoubtedly a funny man - an hour of self deprecating stories that leaves his audience in stitches’ List

Shortlisted for the Amused Moose Comedy award
