In addition, he’s written and performed three solo shows for the Edinburgh Festival, before sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre.

Bennet Arron

Bennett Arron is an award-winning writer, actor, author and stand-up comedian and is the only Jewish/Welsh comedian on the Comedy Circuit.

 As well as being a keynote speaker on the subject of Identity Theft Bennett has performed as a Comedian, After Dinner Speaker and Awards Host at hundreds of corporate events both in the UK and around the world.   TESTIMONIALS “It seems to me that the art of the compere is a dying art. Too many performers “turn their hands” to it as if it were a simple matter. However, in practice the need for sharp awareness of the potential for dead spots, to play off situations with a constant stream of ad libs and to control an audience without presenting “the set” is no mean feat and one that, as a booker, I can say is in short supply. However, in Bennett Arron we have not only a gifted comedian, but also a man who appreciates just what it takes to compere a trade awards show, such as the Fraud Awards, and have the audience loving every single minute. Outstanding!” Mark Emmott, Director, Retail Knowledge (Media) Ltd
