The Moline Cross Events
Norton Cricket Section Comedy Night
Sunday 1st October
It's the return of MC Matt Reid, and it's set to be another hilarious one ...
MC Matt Reid returns on Sunday 1st October to compere another comedy night at The Moline Cross. This time he brings with him 2 fantastic comedians, Scott Bennett and Ignacio Lopez and it's sure to be a great evening.
After starting comedy in late 2009, Scott is a stand-up comedian and writer whose star is most definitely on the rise. His last two shows Leap Year and Relax were nominated for ‘Best Show’ at the Leicester Comedy Festival and was named by Chortle as One To Watch for 2018 and 19.
In 2021 he recorded his debut for Live at the Apollo BBC1 and you might have heard him as a regular guest on many BBC Radio 4 shows, including, Elephant in the Room with Sarah Millican. In 2018, he also featured on the BBC One show, Live from The Edinburgh Fringe.
During the lockdown of 2020, Scott pioneered the viral hit, Stand up from the Shed, a weekly topical live streamed stand up show from his actual garden shed. The show achieved national coverage in the press, Sky News, BBC News and Five Live. At the end of 2020, in the Comics Comic awards Scott was voted “Best Act” a prestigious award decided by comedians and promoters in the industry. Previous winners include, Mick Ferry, Zoe Lyons and Ian Stone.
In 2022 he was nominated as Best Club Comedian in the Chortle awards.
In 2017 and 18 Scott supported his comedy hero, Rob Brydon on his National UK tour dates for his latest show I am Standing Up and was selected to do a support slots for Jason Manford and John Bishop. He also worked alongside Michael McIntyre as part of his work in progress shows at the Duchess Theatre in London with Keri Godliman, Russell Kane and Ed Gamble.
Ignacio Lopez is a Spanish & Welsh comedian based in Cardiff. His parents are Welsh/Irish & Moroccan/Spanish, and he has a German sister; family get-togethers are like a meeting of the U.N.
Every few months something he tweets will go viral and he'll gain a few thousand followers before they realise he doesn't just tweet witty observations about public transport and songs about hating the U.K. - then they unfollow until the next tweet goes viral. The fickle bastards.
