"Denise Scott... only has to look as if she's going to say something and everyone laughs" Sunday Herald Sun, Melbourne

Denise Scott has been treading the boards for longer than she cares to remember, but it is this wealth of experience that makes her one the country's strongest live comic performers. Since her start in the biz in the early 1980's, Scotty has been making people laugh with her blend of personal stories and topical observations.

"Scott was phenomenal" Sydney Morning Herald

In 2004 Scotty received a Barry Award nomination for Best Show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival for her sold out festival hit, Scotty and Son, which featured her nineteen year-old son. She received a second nomination the following year for Denise Scott Gives Good Council.


"big-hearted, shamelessly entertaining" The Age, Melbourne

Now in her fifties, with a couple of adult kids, Denise has experienced a resurgence in popularity, heard each morning on Vega 91.5 as a pivotal member of the breakfast show.


"This show is absolutely A grade; it would be a crime if there were any unsold seats this season." The Age, Melbourne


"Scott affirms her status as one the country's funniest" The Age, Melbourne
