About Scott's act...
Scott takes the stage with a teddy bear demeanor, which draws the unsuspecting crowd into his whimsical world. The audience knows within an instant that they are not watching television and that this is going to be a one-of-a- kind comedy experience.
Scott has achieved notoriety for his sharp audience interaction and patented “hit and run” style of comedy. He laughs at his own foibles and lulls the audience into a false sense of security as he quickly builds a comical camaraderie that sets the crowd at ease. Above suspicion and innocent , his repartee is like talking with a pal over the fence as he grills a cheeseburger.
Scott then hits hard with a few powerful jokes and then asks an innocent audience member a question. Scott’s banter has all the empathy of Dr. Phil, the curiosity of Sherlock Holmes and the compassion of a polar bear stalking a wounded walrus. Unwittingly the audience takes the bait and is no longer
a “watcher” but is a part of Scotts’ show. Soon, even the most stubborn audience member is engaged... and the game begins. Scott's show is a comedic therapy session where the audience laughs at itself. How is it done? Is it some kind of a trick? No. It’s comedy.
Award winning, critically acclaimed, comedy!
