John Scott

Biography

John started his comedy career in Scotland in May 2000 and just two
months later was participating in his first fringe of the Edinburgh festival
in "Stand up Scotland". A showcase for the best new talent emerging
on the Scottish circuit.

Since that time he has gone onto participate in five Edinburgh shows in the various guises of double act, comic actor and solo performer, and in 2003 managed to squeeze in a wee bit time to win the Scottish section of the Spike Milligan award.

The shows have included the critically acclaimed "Fish Supper" sketch show which ran for three successive years, won rave reviews, went into development hell with B.B.C. Scotland and eventually collapsed into a morass of hatred and copyright theft.

 

Other shows have included "Mongrel Nation". A show he wrote with Scots Asian comedian Saj Chaudry. Taking an ironic look at race, stereotypes and modern Scotts/British/Asian identity. This show was also well received managing to make The List magazines Top 10 Pick of the Fringe.

Other work includes being a regular contributor to The Stand comedy clubs current affairs show "A kick up the tabloids" and of course his first love working as a stand up on the British circuit.

More recently John has completed work with Jongleurs and done T.V. warm up for channel 5. He now currently resides in Newcastle where he feels a common kinship with the Geordie. They make him laugh and vice versa.
