Denise Scott and Dave O’Neil head for the NSW coast.
Two of Australia’s most loved comics are teaming up for a quick tour of Northern NSW. Well they’re both from Melbourne and they’re just dying to get away from the cold weather!
They are doing four dates – Byron Bay, Bangalow, Coffs Harbor and Bellingen. Helping them out of two of the four dates is local comic Mandy Nolan.
Denise Scott first started working as a professional actor and comedian nearly thirty years ago, but it has been in the last decade or so that Scotty has gone supernova – winning awards, selling out theatres, appearing on high-rating TV shows and writing two popular memoirs.
Scotty has been and remains a favourite guest on many of Australia’s favourite TV shows, including Spicks and Specks, The Project, and Talkin’ ‘bout Your Generation, in addition to starring as Trish Gross on Channel 7’s high-rating drama Winners & Losers.
Last year saw Denise return to the stage once more with a new, BARRY AWARD-WINNING solo show, Mother Bare, at the Adelaide Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Sydney Opera House and the Brisbane Powerhouse. In 2009 Denise penned All That Happened at Number 26, a book which became a national best seller and a hit tour, with sell-out seasons at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Sydney Opera House.
“Scott can help us see the funny side of any adversity”
