Scott lives and works in Newcastle upon Tyne and has been writing and performing poetry and comedy since 2000. His targets range from popular culture to pointless technology to trying not to shout at stupid people to the perils of parenthood. All delivered with the healthy irreverence and world-weary sulk of someone who’s spent way too much time in queues.
As a poet he has been published several times in anthologies and in his own short collection, 'Wing It' published in 2004.
He is the winner of the European Capital of Culture Slam 2002, the Manchester Comedy Balloon Comedian of the Year 2003, the Belfast Inter-City Slam 2004 and 2005, twice winner of the Radio 4 Poetry Slam North East regional finals, and winner of the inaugural Apples and Snakes Poetry Boxing Final 2010, as well as numerous small slams around the North East of England. He was also a finalist in the UK Poetry Slam Championship at the Theatre Royal Stratford East in 2006.
“Newcastle’s finest and award-winning contemporary poetry (quite literally holding us all spellbound)”
The Crack (Newcastle Listings Magazine)
“A performance that was both hysterical and a masterclass in poetic timing.”
Mark Madden (Belfast Creative Writers’ Network)
“Funny as F***!”
