This November our Soho Rising festival hosts a bunch of the brightest new Soho Theatre Labs voices, over a fortnight.
Benito Skinner is a 25-year-old Brooklyn-based comedian and actor who initially gained notoriety for his impressions and character work.
In the past year alone, Skinner’s original sketches have garnered over 50 million views. His one-man live show depicting his transformation from Idaho football star to gay comedian debuted as part of the New York Comedy Festival in 2018 to a sold-out crowd. Recently, Skinner took his show on the road with The Overcompensating Tour selling out every show all across the USA, and was named a 2019 JFL New Face Creator performing his live show in front of two max capacity shows at the Just For Laughs Festival with tickets selling out within an hour.
