After starting comedy in late 2009, 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 debut hour stand-up show About a Roy was nominated for the highly acclaimed Amused Moose Comedy Award and was selected as one of the top 10 shows at Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2015
A versatile and confident performer, Scott headlines many of the established clubs including; The Comedy Store, Glee, Just The Tonic, Frog and Bucket, Hot Water, Manford’s Comedy Clubs and many independent clubs up and down the country.
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 also appeared on the BBC One Show, Live From The Edinburgh Fringe.
During the Lockdown of 2020, Scott pioneered the viral hit Stand Up From The Shed, a weekly topical live-streamed stand-up show from his actual garden shed. The show achieved national coverage in the press, Sky News, BBC News & 5Live had over 150,000 views.
In 2017 and 2018 Scott supported his comedy hero Rob Brydon on his national UK tour dates for his latest show I am Standing Up, and was selected to do a support spot for Michael McIntyre as part of his work in progress shows at The Duchess Theatre 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 wrier for The Chris Ramsey Show on Comedy Central. He’s written for big touring acts including Jason Manford and Rob Brydon and has worked extensively with BBC Radio 4, with writing credits including The News Quiz, and Citizens of Nowhere with Daliso Chaponda.
