Hilarious’ – Melbourne Age "Riotously funny". The Edmonton Sun


Mark Scott a veteran kiwi comic who has stitched up comedy audiences in Australia, Canada, USA and his native NZ. A regular performer of stand up and delightfully twisted songs on TV2's ‘Pulp Comedy’, his solo show ‘One Night Stand’ also enjoyed sell out nights. Mark has also performed internationally on Improv stages, with the world beating Improv Bandits’ and puts back into the community tutoring improvised comedy skills. You may have also seen him on TV this year in Shortland Street, Mercy Peak and a number of brilliantly dramatic short films or ‘Advertisements’.

"Impeccable timing" Craacum "Utterly original gems" Edmonton Sun

The Stand Up Show 2002 “I’ve seen a lot of stand-up recently; you could say I’ve been suffering from the rare (but potentially fatal) ‘stand-up fatigue’ syndrome. However, I can still appreciate fantastic comedy when I see it, and I saw some great stuff at Circa Studio on Saturday night. This unlikely duo delivered delightful first-class comedy, from the crude to the squeaky-clean. Put them together and what you get is a spectrum of polished, and professional stand-up comedy”.
