Biography

Scott has rapidly established himself as one of the fastest rising stars on the UK circuit. Likeable, with a warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no-nonsense logic.

His shows Leap Year and Relax were nominated for Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival, and he has been named by Chortle as One To Watch.

His debut stand up show About a Roy was nominated for the highly acclaimed Amused Moose Comedy Award and was selected as one of the top ten shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

A versatile and confident performer Scott headlines many established clubs including The Comedy Store, Glee, Just the Tonic, Ten Feet Tall, Manford’s Comedy Club, Funhouse Comedy, Buzz Comedy, Frog and Bucket, Hot Water, Hilarity Bites and many other independents.

He has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The Summer Festival with Daliso Chaponda, The Comedy Club with Arthur Smith, and Knock Knock with Helen Lederer. He has also featured on the BBC One show, Live from The Edinburgh Fringe.

During the lockdown, Scott pioneered the viral hit, Stand up from the Shed, a weekly topical live streamed stand up show from his garden shed. The show achieved national coverage in the press, featured on Sky News, BBC News and Five Live, and has had over 150,000 views.

Scott supported his comedy hero, Rob Brydon on his National UK tour dates for his show I Am Standing Up and was selected to do a support slot for Michael McIntyre as part of his work in progress shows at the Duchess Theatre in London alongside Keri Godliman, Russell Kane, and Ed Gamble.

In addition to his stand-up work Scott is also a talented writer. He was a programme associate on First and Last with Jason Manford for BBC One, and a writer for The Chris Ramsey Show on Comedy Central. He’s written stand up for big touring acts including Jason Manford and Rob Brydon, and has worked extensively for BBC Radio 4, with writing credits including The News Quiz, and Citizen of Nowhere with Daliso Chaponda.
