Life and careerEdit

Bennett grew up in Massapequa, New York, and attended Massapequa High School. After appearing in numerous commercials, Bennett began his television career as Greg the Intern in the pilot episode of the Comedy Central sketch comedy series Michael & Michael Have Issues.

He starred in and co-wrote the short film Text Me in 2010. Text Me was voted Best Comedy at the Indie Short Film Competition and at the Third Screen Film Festival, and was a finalist at the IndieProducer Film Festival.

Bennett later starred in The Virginity Hit, released in October 2010. Described as a "documentary style comedy," Bennett stated in an interview that the film's "directors gave us cameras in our spare time, and he said do pranks, talk amongst yourselves, do things and film that. So we did, and most of the movie is what we filmed. So I feel like 20% is scripted but the rest is all real."

The Virginity Hit was produced by Funny or Die founders Will Ferrell and Adam McKay; in an interview with MTV News, Bennett stated that reception towards the film has been "been very positive...I’m glad that people are getting that it's not just another teen sex romp. It’s a film with heart and a bit of a soul and deep-down it’s a cool love story."

Bennett currently co-stars as Robbie Shapiro in the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious. He was nominated for a 2011 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award (UK) in the category of "Nick UK's Funniest Person".

Bennett independently released an EP of songs that he wrote, Warm Fuzzies, on May 20th 2012. It can be streamed at http://mottbonnott.bandcamp.com/
