Growing up in San Jose, CA, Red Scott never saw things the same way as other kids; he thought he was cool. Born in the early 80s, he established himself as a trend-setter — fat, asthmatic, and socially inept years before Asperger’s was a syndrome or obesity an epidemic. On his way to finding the stage, Red had several diversions, ranging from working as a Software Developer to delivering for Pizza Hut in South Central Los Angeles. Red combines obscure and outdated references with the crazed insistence of a mental patient. His act encompasses everything from politics to absurdism to wordplay, all combined with deft crowd work. Ending an unbroken 26 year streak of defeat, in 2010, Red won the Rooster T Feathers Amateur Comedy Competition, beating out 140 comedians.
