LIFE AFTER DEATH

This show tells the story of the three weeks that changed Scott’s life forever. On returning from a stag weekend in Blackpool, Scott’s brain exploded – he had suffered a massive brain haemorrhage. So he did what any self respecting Glaswegian man would do and went back to bed for 4 days.

A darkly hysterical, inspiring show, delivered with the trademark filthy charisma that Scott is known for; Life After Death is a tale of love and pain, fear and hope. It’s about overcoming insurmountable odds, and how comedy can bring you back to life.

In recent years Scott has successfully established himself as one of the best Scottish Comedians of his generation, a title that was cemented when he received the Lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe. He is also known as Resident MC for BBC Introduces in Scotland, as a host of The Hashtag Show, and has supported some of the biggest names in comedy on their national tours, from Des Clarke and Daniel Sloss, to Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle, who describes Scott as a “natural, gifted, and unapologetic storyteller”.
