Not for the faint-hearted, Scott’s un-comprising take on his gay lifestyle and white trash background make him as challenging as he is funny. A Perrier Award Winner, he has recently had his first novel published “Fowl Play”, a comedy about murder and date rape, to rave reviews.
Described by San Francisco Weekly as “stand-up in the very best possible sense – deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious”
Scott has appeared in Mrs. Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking.
“The most fearless and technically perfect stand up on the circuit.” – The Guardian
Erich is a stand-up comedian and writer. Originally from Seattle, he moved to the UK in 2000 and in 2007 collected his British passport.
His latest show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, (US) Electile Dysfunction, received numerous four and five-star reviews and was a hit with audiences.
Erich is a regular on the comedy circuit appearing at top clubs in the UK and in Europe. Erich has appeared on BBC Breakfast, Newsnight, Sky News and Five News. He has been heard talking comedy and politics on BBC 5 Live, BBC Surrey, BBC Berkshire and regularly on TalkRadio.
“This is political stand-up at its best.” BroadwayBaby
“Brilliant observation.” Chortle

Ben van der Velde as MC
Ben has been dizzying himself on the stand-up merry-go-round. In that time, this has been said about him:
“A sharp and crafty gagsmith, with wittily obtuse takes on...an impressively wide range of topics...bringing flair and confidence to them all. " Chortle
“Highly promising...an accomplished comic.” Time Out
“Exquisite comic timing...wonderfully clownish physical comedy." British Theatre Guide
