In 2011, Bennett created the satirical political talk show Fresh Perspectives, which helped him land his AT&T commercials interviewing children.

In 2012, he appeared in the film Kill Me Now, a film starring multiple internet sketch-comedy groups, and Beside Still Waters by writer/director Chris Lowell.

In March 2013, Bennett appeared in an episode of Last Man Standing, and that August voiced a character for FOX ADHD's Axe Cop. That same year Good Neighbor produced a pilot for Comedy Central with Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez production company, though it was not picked up as a series, in light of the move of three of the troupe's four members to New York City to star on Saturday Night Live. They debuted on SNL in September of that year, along with McCary as a director.

That same year Bennett completed work on the independent film Balls Out, and co-created the web series Theatre of Life, in which he and Rutherford film unsuspecting pedestrians and voice-over their thoughts and dialogue.

Bennett voices Launchpad McQuack in the 2017 DuckTales reboot.
