Scott is a former economist who quit to write jokes.
He recently ran a satirical election campaign for Canada’s unelected Senate, wrote and performed a weekly political commentary vlog on the Toronto Star for two years, and received national attention for trolling the now-defunct Sun News Network on air.
He began his comedy career with his sketch group Picnicface, producing a TV series, a satirical book about Canada and a film, Roller Town. He has gone on to write and perform for TV (Conan, This Hour Has 22 Minutes), radio (This is That, Because News), and the web (Vice, Funny or Die, iPolitics).
Scott has won 7 Canadian Comedy Awards and a Canadian Screen Award, if you’re into that sort of thing.
