Bennett Arron is an award-winning writer, actor and stand-up comedian and is the only Jewish/Welsh comedian on the Comedy Circuit.
Bennett has supported Ricky Gervais on some of his tour dates and is a past winner of the TAPS Comedy Writer of the Year Award. His television work includes Big Brother’s Little Brother for Channel 4, and he hosted the comedy programme Glee Time for ITV. Bennett is also a trained actor and appeared in the film Dead Long Enough alongside Michael Sheen. He has written for many comedy programmes, including The 11 O’ Clock Show, Commercial Breakdown and the BAFTA-winning Graham Norton Show. He also wrote most episodes of Genie in The House – the highest-rated children’s sitcom on Nickelodeon and the BATA-winning Slammer for the BBC.
Bennett also had his identity stolen, and spent two years attempting to reclaim it during which he faced a transient and unstable existence. Yet, he later wrote a comedy show about his experience and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe for what was meant to be a short ten-day run. However, due to the overwhelming response and excellent reviews it was picked up by the media and Bennett directed and presented the documentary How To Steal an Identity for Channel 4; which was “Pick of the Day” in The Guardian and The Telegraph, described as “Fascinating and Disturbing” by the TV Times. Bennett was short-listed for a BAFTA.
As a result of this, Bennett has become a much sought-after speaker on the subject of Identity Theft and has spoken at events throughout the UK as well as Italy, Poland and Australia. A multi-talented, writer and performer, Bennett is highly sought after for corporate events, and as a writer is well-versed in tailoring comedy and talks to widely differing briefs.
