Our Best of Gigmasters comedian for 2014-15-16...And 2017. Scott's standup has been seen on NBC, FOX-TV, ESPN, and he's written comedy sketches for 6 SUPER BOWLS! His NON-PROFANITY, but hilarious show works with any group, which is why Scott even performs for all-age groups at State Fairs and on Cruise Ships. Scott Long has over 100 five star reviews from small companies...to Fortune 500 one's like GE and State Farm! His comedic message speaks to how you can grow up in Fly Over Country and keep those values... all while performing on the top stages across the US, from NYC to Vegas and LA.
Here's a question you need to answer. Do you want to bring in some comedian with their bias and attitude built from living in New York or California? Does your group want to hear endless jokes about LA traffic or NYC subways or views that disparage Fly-over country? If so, you have plenty of options, but Scott wants you to know if that is your goal, he then isn't your guy.
BUT if you want someone who will totally CONNECT with your Ohio/PA group, someone who tells hilarious stories about a dysfunctional childhood, being married for over 2 decades with 3 kids? If you want someone who can write great custom material about your group? If you would love to have a comedian who will improvise with your group making some of the audience his co-stars? Well then SCOTT LONG is perfect for your event!
Scott's known for his versatility! Company Events, FUNDRAISERS, Roasts, Birthday or Anniversary Parties, etc. What puts Scott above others is how he can customize material for each event and the AMAZING improvisation he incorporates--as he makes the audience his co-stars! There is no better act for a fundraiser, as Scott's poignant story of having a child with a disability connects on all levels. The father of a 12 year old girl on the autism spectrum, Scott does many fundraisers for Special Needs groups, as he's committed to raising money and awareness for people with developmental disabilities. (Helped raise over $100,000 dollars for these groups in just the past 2 years! His latest comedy CD, Good Dad...Not a Great Dad is a big selling standup release which can be found or heard on iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, & Sirius/XM.
Over the past 13 seasons Scott's written Frank Caliendo's comedy sketches for the NFL Pregame show on FOX & ESPN, plus 3 Super Bowls and 2 NASCAR Award Shows. Let him bring his emmy-nominated comedy writing to your event!
Scott's WARNING: Hiring a comedian is not like hiring a plumber. You go for the lowest bid & there's a great chance you could wind up w/someone who isn't funny & even worse--could be offensive in their material--despite their claims. I've been performing standup for the past 20 years, at all the major comedy clubs and have done 100's of corporate comedy events to rave reviews. (see below:) Don't let a few 100 dollars stand in the way of having a great event your attendees will be talking about for a long time. The inexperienced comics on here cause me 2 bring my price quotes down from my regular agency fee so Gigmasters is good for you!
An example of what Scott's professional clean comedy offers. This review was from a show, which had an average age of 75 & even one woman over 100.
We hosted a client appreciation event and Scott did a great job in his presentation. Our client list included many retirees up to the age of 97 and Scott was able to relate very well to them. I have received many compliments from the attendees with how much they enjoyed the evening.

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT SCOTT
We hired Scott to perform for our Super Bowl clients in Houston and look forward to using him again at our next event!

DO NOT BOOK SCOTT…..if you hate laughing so hard your stomach hurts! Scott was hilarious! Some of our State Farm events can be a bit stuffy, Scott broke through all of that and had everyone rolling. His improvisation and quick wit was very impressive. So too was the fact that he tailored a lot of his material to our industry. Honestly, I want to host another event just so I can book Scott again.
Justin of State Farm Insurance
Scott presented at our corporate event and was very friendly and accommodating. His interaction and engagement with the crowd was spot on. In addition, Scott was open and willing to be flexible regarding our special event requests which ensured a great and memorable night. Scott is truly a class act!
