The Scott Long Bio

DSC_0018-FINAL

Welcome to a Real Reality Show. Scott Long tells his story of growing up in the Cornstalk Ghetto of Iowa and how making people laugh was the best therapy for an extremely dysfunctional childhood. Marriage, children, and stories of Midwest life are the focus of his hilarious show!

After college Scott moved to Chicago, but for the past 2 decades the state of Indiana has been his home. Scott’s Dad was born in Detroit, his Mom lives in Oklahoma, and his Grandparents are from Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Kentucky. Is it any wonder he’s considered the Best Comedian at connecting with Middle of the Country audiences? Scott proves you can perform at the nation’s top comedy clubs and write for Network TV shows–all while being based in the Midwest.

Scott has been seen on NBC, FOX, ESPN, and the Bob and Tom Show.  For the past 13 years he’s written the comedy sketches for the amazingly talented Frank Caliendo at the NFL on FOX and ESPN Countdown pregame shows. Scott has also written a book of comedic essays entitled Dysfunctional Thoughts of a 21st Century Man, plus released 2 comedy CD’s and 2 comedy DVD’s.

No two Scott Long performances are ever the same, as depending on the audience he can bring completely different shows. The top online corporate comedy website, Gigmasters, voted him their 2014 and 2015 Standup Comedian of the Year. Make sure to contact him at scottlongcomic@gmail.com if you want to hire him for your next event!

His latest show is called Good Dad…Not a Great Dad and it’s a hilariously truthful, but sometimes poignant exploration of having a daughter on the autism spectrum, only to add having twins at 40 years old. The CD of this show has gotten great reviews, which includes what the comedy website Under the Gun said… “I’ve listened to and reviewed 52 comedy albums in 2013, but Scott Long’s is probably the one that touched me the most.

Scott has hit the stage in 44 states.  Below is a list of just some of the comedy clubs Scott has performed at during his career.

IMPROV (Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Irvine, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Tempe, Washington DC) Funny Bone (Baton Rouge, Buffalo, Columbus, Des Moines, Green Bay, St. Louis, South Bend, Springfield MO), Loony Bin (Little Rock, Memphis, Oklahoma City, Wichita), Comedy Zone (Charlotte), Punchline (Atlanta), Joke Joint (Twin Cities), Minnesota Comedy Club (Twin Cities), Zanies (Chicago), Laugh Factory (Chicago), Giggles (Milwaukee), Chaplins (Detroit), Joey’s (Detroit), Famous Johnny’s (Kansas City), Stanfords (Kansas City), Crackers (Indianapolis), Comedy Caravan (Louisville), Go Bananas (Cincinnati), Stardome (Birmingham), Rivercenter Comedy Club (San Antonio), Laffs (Tucson), Comedy at the Bob (Grand Rapids), Connections (Lansing, Toledo), Hilarities (Akron), Gary Fields Comedy Club (Battle Creek, Kalamazoo), Comedy Forum (St. Louis), Snickers (Ft.

(This includes performances at such diverse locations as state prisons, nudist colonies, and strip clubs.  No really, he’s performed at these places.)
