Fresh from headlining the prestigious Big Value Showcase at the Edinburgh Festival, Scott is a former Comedy Cellar New Act of the year and Old Speckled Hen comedian of the year award winner and Loaded Laftas runner up. Stylishly shirted, this Yorkshire-born lad delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living. His sharply-written routines, drawn from real-life experiences have been delighting audiences across the country; except in Yorkshire, where they are deeply suspicious of his shirts.
