The Original Comedy Keller
'Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you'll find' - The Scotsman
'His daftness is little short of surreal genius' - The Stage
Fresh from a role in Ken Loach's Palme d'Or winning 'I, Daniel Blake', his slew of credits include 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks', 'The Stand-Up Show', 'The Comedy Store', 'The 11 O' Clock Show', 'Does Doug Know' and the Radio 4 sketch show 'The Show What You Wrote'. Famed and respected by his peers for his uncompromising and unusual approach and distinctly original routines, he now boasts a large cult following round the country and particularly on his native Tyneside where he sells out theatres with his one man ninety minute shows. Hard edged routines, quick-fire pastiche pieces, moronic jokes and sardonic songs, his unique style is a joy to behold. Voted 'Comedian's Comedian' 2014.
'Clearly has a big future, flashes of Peter Kay, Jason Manford and John Bishop' - Bruce Dessau, Amused Moose Finals Review
Likeable, with a warm and engaging delivery, he is a Yorkshire live wire with an undeniable no nonsense logic. In demand by many of the big clubs, Scott delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living. His sharply written routines have been delighting audiences across the country. In 2013 and 2015 he was selected to perform in the prestigious Big Value showcase show for Just the Tonic at the Edinburgh fringe, the show has previously been a springboard to success for many household names including Jason Manford and Sarah Millican.
His debut hour stand up show "About a Roy: Stories about me dad" 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 in 2015. As well as receiving rave reviews, Scott was selected to perform an extract from the show as part of the famous Mervyn Stutter's "Pick of the Fringe Showcase". The show also received a Best New Show nomination at the Buxton Fringe Festival. English Comedian of the Year Runner Up, Comedy Cellar New Act of the Year and Old Speckled Hen Comedian of the Year. In short, he's ace.
'A one woman comedic whirlwind' - bbc.co.uk
'Engaging banter and intelligent delivery from a very promising performer' - bbc.co.uk
Compere - Elliot J Huntley
'It was most impressive how effortlessly he commanded the crowd courtesy of some cracking gags, superb comic songs and old school onstage poise' - What's On
With a fabulous array of highly inventive tall-tales and gently twisted punchlines regarding relationships, fatherhood and hanging around low quality nightclubs in the grim hope of an extra curricular dalliance, Elliot’s comedic terrain is constantly entertaining. With his self-confessed oily superficial goodwill he manages to charm even the most stoic of audiences with his playful patter and side-splitting songs performed on mandolin and laced with instantly memorable couplets.
