He has been working professionally in television series, many commercials, film (“Muriel’s Wedding”) & also the web! In 1996, Scott also toured high schools around Australia performing in a two-hand multiple character play. Having filmed two pilot comedy series, Scott has been very close to doing what he loves full time, but as his Agent knows, sometimes this life can be frustrating. Performing in TheatreSports® “Scared Scriptless” in 1998 & 1999 & also @ the 1999 Cranston Cup, Scott loves live comedy. He believes Steve Martin hit the nail on the head when he said, “Great comedy is being able to make people laugh without making them puke”…
Perhaps “Lovepuke” takes this further?
